Après Like You Mean It

Après ski in Aspen and Snowmass Village is treated as more than just something to do after a day of skiing and riding — it’s considered a lifestyle. Recognized by Conde Nast Traveler magazine as having the best après ski scene in North America, Aspen is the epicenter of it all, but outstanding options can be found in Snowmass Village, around the valley, and of course, at the world-famous Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro on Aspen Highlands.

Ingredients for a Lively Après Ski Scene

1. The Company

The party is only as good as the people you're with! Whether you're at Lynn Britt Après Parties, Cloud Nine, or one or our many Après parties through out the season, our parties are so legendary because of YOU our guests! Bring your crew or meet a new one, from the locals to international guests you're sure to meet some new and fascinating friends to party with!

2. A Care-Free Attitude

At Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro on Aspen Highlands, they usually start popping the corks around 1pm. Considering the often sun-soaked view from the patio, why not? Some days the vibe here is more raucous than others, but one thing is always certain: afternoons at Cloud Nine are always a good time.

3. Location, Location, Location

Location is everything. As you ski down Little Nell on Aspen Mountain, you’ll see its namesake hotel and what appears to be a sprawling party taking place on the patio. That would be the famous Ajax Tavern, Aspen’s top spot to see and be seen … and eat truffle fries with a locally brewed draft beer.
