Aspen takes the après scene to new heights all winter long, and après ski in Aspen can be just as fun as a powder day on Ajax. With a variety of bars and restaurants to choose from, there is certainly a spot for everyone's taste.
Chair 9- The Little Nell
Recognized as one of the best après ski lounges in the country, this is your reward for putting in a hard day on the mountain. The bar opens just as the lifts are closing, and live bands take the stage from 4-7 p.m. daily.
39 Degrees- Sky Hotel
Located in the Sky Hotel, 39 Degrees Lounge has been Aspen's iconic après choice for many people both locals and tourists alike. With an outdoor party pool, hot tub and specialty cocktails for every palate, this spot has it all. The vibe at the lounge has a trendy, mountain feel with fireplaces to warm up after a long day on the slopes.
Justice Snow’s historic building was constructed in 1889 as the gem of Aspen, and the space was fully renovated in January 2012. The result is a modern atmosphere with a vintage feel.

If you feel like trying a new cocktail that you may never get the chance to order anywhere else, go here.
