12 of the Best European Resorts for Après

Best European resorts for ApresFor many, Après has long been a legendary part of a snowboard trip. It normally lures you in around 4pm with a casual jug of beer and before you know it you’re knocking back the Jägers, dancing more enthusiastically than you thought yourself capable of to euro-pop and laughing in the faces of skiers as they attempt to clamber on tables in their silly boots.

This might sound like an impossible task after a punishing day on the mountain, but the saving grace of après is that it usually releases you from its clinches at around 9pm – plenty of time to shake off the crimes from the night before and still hit first lifts.

Whether you’re looking for a few sophisticated Vin Chaudes in a French local or you want to stomp on the rule book and keep the party going ’til 4am, here’s our pick of the best European resorts for après
