Ladies Take Lunch Break on Mountain in Vail, CO.

Enjoy Vail's après after skiing each day

Apres-ski ("after skiing" in French) refers to going out, eating and drinking after skiing. While there is nothing new about apres ski in concept, Vail is taking it to the next level with the bell ringing at 4pm daily, live music and monthly apres parties.

Each day in Vail this winter, listen for the bells at 4pm. That's the call to head back down the mountain for cocktails, appetizers, fun in the village, and reliving the day on the slopes with friends. Enjoy the apres signatures in the restaurants before heading back to your condo to change and warm up before dinner. Here are our favorites places to eat and drink in Lionshead in Vail, CO:

  • Vail Chophouse | eat Oysters, drink The Butterfinger and listen to Phil Long Live
  • Garfinkels | eat Nachos and drink Spin the Shot Wheel
  • Blue Moose | eat Fried Ravioli or slice of pizza and drink The Buckaroo
  • Moe's BBQ | eat Smoked Wings

The enjoyment and convenience of Vail Apres is one more reason to book your stay right in Lionshead Village, walking distance from the Gondola. No need to hassle with getting back to your car, parking, or driving. Simply walk off the gondola and into the fun of Vail Apres, then again when you are ready to head out for dinner. Perhaps after a rooftop hot tub session? You know what to do.
