Après is our specialty here at The Spring Skiing Capital! We have 19 outdoor decks and patios across the resort that are dedicated to kicking back with a cold drink in the California sunshine. Here are a few not to miss.
The Ice Bar
Come here for the... laid back vibes and best place to work on your goggle tan.
Tucked away on the backside of Alpine Meadows near the base of Sherwood Chair, the Ice Bar is perfect place to pull off the slopes, kick back and soak in the sun. Unwind in lounge chairs with a can of beer and hot barbecued bratwurst and enjoy the feeling of being completely away from it all. Don't forget sunscreen!
Come here for the... classic Squaw Valley bar: Loft Bar, friendly banter and beer.
A local's favorite, the 'Chammy' has been a go-to après spot for years. Sunny Spring days are perfect for sitting outside in the Adirondack chairs constructed from skis while taking in the views of the iconic Tram Face. After the sun sets, head upstairs to the Loft Bar where you'll find casual seating on couches and retired chairlifts. Le Chamois' fabled walls are adorned with memorabilia, classic photos and plenty of tall tales - you'll need to take a minute (or a few) to soak it all in.
KT Base Bar
Come here for the... sun deck and incredible views.
When your day on the slopes is over and you're looking to unwind, KT Base Bar is your spot to soak up the sun under the legendary KT-22. Staggering views, fresh air, and signature cocktails always have a good crowd on hand here. Be sure to try out the Irish Nachos or Tri Tip Sandwich and don't miss live outdoor music on Saturdays in April!
Alpine Meadows Sun Deck
Come here for... spring music under the sun.
As the day of skiing and riding at Alpine Meadows winds down, après lives on at the main lodge sun deck. Grab a drink inside at the Last Chair Bar and head back out to enjoy the afternoon sun and some of The Spring Skiing Capital's best events including the Spring Music Series every Saturday and Sunday through April 30.
Rocker @ Squaw
Come here for the... beers on tap and Nachos.
If craft beer and a tower of cheesy delicious nachos is your thing, then head to Rocker@Squaw. Not only that, you’ll find big screens inside to watch your team on game day and one of the best outdoor decks to watch the slopes and the action in the heart of The Village. Try one of the signature cocktails like the "Shane McConkey" which is served in a commemorative glass with a portion of the proceeds being donated to the Squaw Valley legend's foundation.
