Vail Après

Definition: Après-ski (“after skiing” in French) refers to going out, having drinks, dancing and generally socializing after skiing. Skiers often stop at bars right after their last run of the day, all while still wearing ski gear.

After a day of adventure, join in on the second awakening of our quaint alpine villages as bells ring to signify the start of Vail’s après ski.  Kick off your skis, explore the Villages and enjoy Signature Recommendations while you reminisce on the day’s best moments with family and friends.

4pm, daily all winter. #VailApres
