The Best Resorts For Apres Ski In Europe

The Best Resorts For Apres Ski In Europe

At Stoke, we LOVE Winter, about as much as we love Summer, okay fine, we love every damn season as every season brings with it new adventure and amazing experiences just waiting for you. But Winter means snow, it means friends, laughs but best of all, it means APRES SKI.

So, given the fact that you are probably heading into work, looking out the window or aggressively scrolling Instagram for the most epic ski or snowboard themed images, you need to start thinking about booking your next getaway.

This is a public service announcement, its good for the soul. This way you can daydream about all the next level experiences you are going to have. Because we aim to please, we have compiled a little list of the best resorts in Europe for Apres ski.

After all, there is literally nothing better than a long days riding with your crew, then riding directly up to the bar, slamming your wallet down and yelling “GARCON, DOUZE JAGER BOMB GRACIAS”, perhaps we adhere to basic social normals and leave the slightly xenophobic undertones at the door, but nether the less, the premise remains!

Let’s kick off!

1.) St Anton

And we are off, outta the gate with quite possibly the home of apres ski.

St Anton is home to world-class powder, excellent snow parks, proximity to a whole host of cool areas and it has beaconed internationals from all over the world to enjoy the atmosphere. Make sure you are there on a Thursday, this is the locals massive apres ski blowout. Prepare to stay in your salopettes until you literally pass out at 10 pm.

– Nearest Airport: Innsbruck, Zurich

– Where to stay: Edelweiss Pettneu Lodge

– Where to Party: Krazy Kanguruh, Das Basecamp and MooserWirt

2.) Meribel

Ah, Les 3 Vallees <insert French accent here>, you see what we did, it’s like “Ah Paris” but more relevant.  Meribel maybe be known as Blackpool with snow but that’s offensive to Blackpool, snow and France so we are going to ignore that and just tell you that Meribel is super fun. Yes, the Brits have claimed it as their own, but you have an awesomely eclectic mix of people from all over the world with French alpine charm mixed with the Brits never faltering love to party.

– Nearest Airport: Chambery, Genere, Grenoble

– Where to stay: ChaletArc – Riders Hostel – Maison des Quatre Balcons

– Where to Party: LE ROND POINT  “The Ronnie”, Le pub, Jacks bar

3.) Ischgl

Now we are getting real with it. This one is for those of us who like to be challenged in the day, work for their first apres ski beer. You want a day of challenging tough world-renowned slopes, great off-piste then you can land yourself in a fake sheepskin-covered chair at 4 pm with a rum-laced hot chocolate in hand and ignore the weird muscle twitch in your thighs and the sweat on your forehead!

– Nearest Airport: Innsbruck airport

– Where to stay: Hotel Madlein

– Where to Party: Freeride Aprés Ski Bar Ischgl, Schatzi Bar Khustall

4.) Andorra La Vella

Now to Andorra, Spain and France’s higher, non-EU neighbour. Just a cheeky three hours from Barcelona (and we know how cheap the flights are YASSS) so snap a cheeky early finish on Friday, jump on an afternoon flight to Barcelona and be in Andorra by late evening. The pistes are impeccably groomed which makes this a heaven for beginner and intermediate riders plus an absolutely bustling nightlife. The apres is no different, oh and did we mention Andorra is entirely tax-free? This lesser-known paradise is a must, plus it’s where we have our all-inclusive Snow Weekenders leaving Barcelona every Friday from Jan 18 – March 11, so all you need to do is meet us in Barcelona and let us do the hard yards for you.

  • Nearest Airport: Barcelona
  • Where to stay: With us! Check out our 2 night package with return transport
