The French realized a long time ago that skiing was not just a sport, but a lifestyle; that a day on the mountain did not just end when the lifts stopped spinning. In fact, they enjoyed their post mountain activities, usually accompanied by some good cheese and wine, just as much as there on mountain ones. Thus, the phrase après ski was born. Après ski is about so much, the food, the drinks, the music and, definitely, the clothes. So, if you have a skier or rider on your holiday list this winter, then get them the gift that continues to give after the mountain shuts down for the day. Here is the first installment of the All About Après top picks for après ski gifts this winter.
