There’s truly never a wrong time or place for a round of cocktails. After hitting the slopes it’s imperative that you toast to the evening at the nearest cozy bar with warm libations. From Austria to Denver, post-ski drinking is a universal language. The French term for “after skiing,” après-ski was first used in 1951 and can refer to smoking lounges, Vegas-style clubs, and everything in between. For this ski season, take these destination and style cues as the right amount of inspiration to get started on your own après-ski holiday:
In the Clouds. Arriving to the scene fresh off the slopes? You may have worked up a sweat but a swipe of a matte red lip and a little primer to give your face a refreshing flush is the simple prep you need for pre-merrymaking at the newly renovated Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro in Denver, Colorado.
SNO Ski Jumpsuit | $300 | Topshop
Priming Moisturizer and Balm Dot Com | $25 and $12 | Glossier
Velvet Matte Lip Pencil | $26 | NARS
Shearling, Velvet, and Patent-Leather Boots | $1,395 | Nicholas Kirkwood
Slopeside chic. It’s fine to admit you ventured to the mountains for fireside lounging at the Topnotch Resort in Stowe, VT and a chance to wear cute snow boots. Take your look up a notch for bites, speciality cocktails, and sweeping views of Mount Mansfield at The Roost.
Ski-In, Dance Out. Or you could always head to Tea del Vidal in Livigno, Italy for your apres-ski festivities, where it’s perfectly acceptable to twerk in your boots with the fur sans judgement.
