The Best Après-Ski Eats Around the Globe

Canadian world cup alpine ski racer Dustin Cook shares his favourite spots.

Après ski food and drink

The George Restaurant & Pub

Vail, Colorado

This isn’t your typical Vail spot – you can actually wear your ski gear here! The owner is English and his specialty is a phenomenal fish and chips. They also pour a selection of Colorado craft beers. After a day of skiing, my go-to is Oskar Blues’ Old Chub: a dark winter beer with chocolate and coffee notes.

Vail’s Mountain Haus, 292 E. Meadow Dr.

The Ryan II

Mont Sainte-Marie, Québec

The bar at my hometown ski club hasn’t changed much in the 17 years I’ve been coming here. It’s your typical Canadian lodge with wooden beams and vintage memorabilia on the walls. But they’ve recently revamped the menu with deliciously simple pizzas, and they built a tiki bar on the outdoor patio.

76, ch. de la Montagne

Dusty’s Bar & BBQ

Whistler, British Columbia

You can ski right up to Dusty’s huge outdoor patio near the gondola in Creekside. There, just sit in the sun and choose from a tasty selection of pub food: pulled pork, wings and nachos. They also make a terrific old-fashioned Bloody Caesar, which goes great with the yam fries.
