Help us crown the best après bars in North America

Help us crown the best après bars in North America


It’s one of the most beloved activities of skiers, a close second to skiing itself. There are countless ski town bars across North America to thank for that—places full of rich character that invite us in, let us rest our weary legs and fest without a care in the world. Time after time they welcome us back with open arms and frosty mugs. To you, dear ski town bars, we are eternally grateful. And now, we’re looking to repay them by crowning the best of the best, the crème de la crème, in a contest we’ve dubbed “Elevated Après.” Because that’s exactly what these ski town bars do: They elevate the party.


Behold, “Elevated Après.”

Beginning October 1, visit freeskier.com/apres to vote for your favorite ski town watering holes in North America. Your votes will help us crown the winners. In December, we’ll hit the road on an “Après Party Tour,” hosting celebratory bashes at a select few. We hope to see you on Tour, and look forward to sharing a few drinks with you.
