Long before craft beer became a craze, wine was actually the beverage of choice during après-ski. Remember, this post ski social act originated in Europe where fondue and raclette paired really well with the wines from the old world. This was even the case in the early ski eras of the U.S. when mulled wine or even sacks of wine accompanied skiers in pictures of this bygone era. That, however, was long ago and beer has since dominated après since then. However, it appears our favorite grape beverage may be making a comeback in the ski scene. Wineries like Old...

Photo Credit: Chandler Burgess In an effort to expand their horizons and attract more than just skiers and snowboarders to mountains, more and more resorts are offering dining experiences that are far beyond traditional. From beer pairing dinners, to rides in horse drawn sleighs followed by meals cooked by the fireside, resorts are ushering in the next level of dining with an avi bomb-like bang. Not to be outdone in all of this is Killington Mountain Resort, whose Motor Room Bar and Ledgewood Yurt are as beastly as their ski mountain reputation.  Elevated Après-Ski at Killington's Motor Room Bar Photo Credit:...

Photo Credit: Stratton Mountain I have always loved the après-ski scene at Stratton Mountain. Don't get me wrong, no matter what mountain I am at, I'll find a good time. It doesn't take much, just good friends at a bar with beers and nachos and I am a happy man. But, with the village located right at the base, and everything in walking distance, Stratton offers a little something for everyone.

Photo Credit: Killington Resort, David Young On a recent flight home from Utah, I struck up a conversation with the woman next to me on the plane. Turns out she worked marketing for the U.S. Women's World Cup Team. As a fan of all things skiing and having grown up skiing Killington, we chatted for quite some time particularly on the upcoming race there. She continuously reiterated how great a venue Killington is to host a race and, more importantly, how incredible the fan base in the East is. Elaborating by saying that The Beast of the East draws more fans...
