For some people, the après ski scene is the only reason to go up the mountain. People live for après, and if you haven’t ended up in the bar at 2 am still wearing your ski boots, to this crowd, you haven’t lived.

From massive free outdoor concerts to craft beer festivals, there is an aprés event for everyone. Check them out below…
