Top Spots For Après Ski

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 DJs take the stage from 4-7 p.m. daily.


Clicquot in the Snow

Clicquot in the Snow at Ajax Tavern offers the picture-perfect place to “après-ski and be seen” on the Ajax patio while enjoying drink specials from Veuve Clicquot and DJ Dylan each Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 3 pm – 6 pm.
