Après-ski is officially defined as “a social activity after a day’s skiing,” but it can also be described as a well-earned happy hour. After a day of shredding the slopes at one of our world-class ski resorts surrounding our region, there’s nothing better than relaxing with drinks, friends and fun times. Here are some great places and popular drinks to enjoy après-ski.
Beer and Wine
After a full day of crushing it on the slopes, there isn’t a better way to wind down than with a glass of wine or a pint of beer. Stopping by any of these local watering holes is the perfect way to end your day.
Great Basin Brewing Company – The oldest brewery in Nevada, Great Basin is a local favorite and for good reason. Try their Deathwish APA which was made in collaboration with Reno’s Moment Skis. Oh, and try the nachos. They are delicious!
Whispering Vine – With four locations in Reno, a good glass of vino is not far away. Order a flight, and if you find a wine you like, buy a bottle to-go!
Alibi Ale Works – An Incline Village Brewery, this is a popular spot to gather, drink, and discuss the epic day you just had on the mountain.
MidTown Wine Bar – Come for the wine, stay for the live music and dancing. And when you start to get hungry you can order from any of the delicious neighboring restaurants.
If you’re looking to relax with a cocktail, then we have you covered. Not only do we have some of the best cocktails bars around, but our ambiance is hard to beat. Spend your evening lakeside, overlooking the river, or next to a firepit.
Lone Eagle Grille – Located lakeside in the beautiful Hyatt, choose your Fireside drink of choice and cozy up next to one of their fire pits located right on the water. It doesn’t get much better than this.
Death and Taxes – This cocktail lounge specializes in fresh artisanal cocktails made with season ingredient and house-made syrups and infusions. It’s worth writing home about.
The Shore bar – You just spent the day on the mountain, now you can spend your evening sitting beside a fire pit overlooking the Truckee River. This is Après-ski at it’s finest.
Fireside Lounge – Located inside the Peppermill Reno, this lounge has a vintage vibe and is perfect for groups. Grab a sunken booth and order the Scorpion – a 64oz. signature cocktail that’s perfect for sharing.
