Après Ski

In BC, there are myriad things to do after a day on the slopes, from savouring a tall cool one in a classic ski-town bar to working out the kinks at an outdoor spa.  

Beer & Wine

Stash your skis and make friends with the locals at a resort bar, patio, or fireside lounge. Check out the scene on Whistler Blackcomb’s Garibaldi Lift Company patio, or raise a glass in Revelstoke’s “downtown” bar, The Village Idiot. Dance in your ski boots at The Griz Bar in Fernie, or pull up a chair for live music at RED Mountain Resort’s Rafters Landing.


BC’s mountain villages serve up diverse cuisine, from food-truck grub to five-star dining. Ever drink coffee from a gun barrel? You can at Big White Ski Resort. You can feast on fondue in a hut set in the clouds (2,440 metres, or 8,000 feet, to be precise) at Panorama Mountain Resort, too.

Healthy, on-mountain meals fuel the fire at Whitewater Ski Resort’s Fresh Tracks Café. Dinner up top at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, home to the highest restaurant in Canada, includes a panoramic view. You can snowshoe for fondue at Vancouver Island’s Mount Washington, or make the most of your time on the slopes during Sun Peaks Resort’s decadent Fondue Dinner & Evening Descent.


When night falls, BC’s ski villages come alive. Cheer on Whistler Blackcomb athletes as they flip and twist through flames at a Fire & Ice Show. Share a pint at Sun Peaks' Bottoms Bar & Grill. Lace up for a glide along the kilometre-long Adventure Skating Loop at Apex Mountain Resort, or warm your toes by the rink-side fire pit at Kimberley Alpine Resort. Want more? Ski under the stars at SilverStar Resort, feel the beat at Nelson’s Spiritbar, or take a village stroll during one Whistler’s legendary pub crawls.


Steam rising from resort pools and hot tubs is a welcome sight after a day on the steeps. Take a dip in Canada’s largest slope-side hot pools at Panorama Springs Pools. Find your bliss at Whistler’s Scandinave Spa, a luxurious outdoor spa embraced by old-growth forests and mountain peaks. Or be adventurous, and soak in the natural hot springs of the Kootenay Rockies, a memorable—and camera-worthy—post-ski experience.
