Where to Après-ski this season in the French Alps

    Even if we like to think we go skiing to hit the powder 9-5, the truth is by 3pm our legs are craving a different type of exercise: a dance on the tables of some of the highest bars in the world!

 Despite the Austrians being the clear winners of Après ski, French ski resorts still have plenty on offer, the following of which in my opinion are the best. I’ve stuck to on-the-mountain venues, which usually involve some après ski-skiing… all the more fun after excessive amounts of beer and vin chaud.

  • La Folie Douce

Where?  Val D’isère, Val Thorens, Meribel, ValD’isere, Alpe d’Huez

New this season: St Gervais/Megeve

                                                 Throwing away all the champagne: more pretentious fun

 

 

  • Bar 360

Where? Val Thorens
