After a day of epic skiing and riding at one of Tirol’s ski resorts, the best thing to do is relax at one of the country’s many après-ski spots. Ski right up to a slopeside bar for scrumptious food, frosty drinks, and plenty of music to get you dancing in your ski boots.
Après is a way of life in Tirol. Literally meaning “after skiing” in French, it is a tradition that has become a day-to-day ritual at many Tirol ski resorts. Après can be anything you want it to be, from deeply steeped in tradition to glamorous to hip to easy to laid-back, sporty or classy. From sun-drenched, mountainside patios to top live acts at the heart of a ski resort, there’s something for everyone. The glitzy and famous hotspots of Innsbruck, Kitzbühel and Ischgl lure international visitors to have drinks and socialize after a day on the slopes. And then there are those quieter slopeside locations that are perfect for people-watching and hanging out with friends in an unbeatable relaxed and laid-back atmosphere. Take a seat in a sophisticated lounge style bar where views of snowcapped mountains are plentiful… Here are some of the top picks around the country.
