Après-Ski in Style

After adventure-filled days on the piste, relax into these inviting spaces for the perfect après-ski experiences. (Isn’t that the best part of skiing, after all?)

Bachelor Gulch, Colorado

With an array of bespoke offerings available at The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch for skiers and non-skiers alike — from snowshoe hikes with the resort’s naturalist to evenings around the firepit with s’mores — guests can delight in a day of winter adventures followed by a fireside après experience in The Great Room. A three-story stone fireplace is the centerpiece of this lodge-inspired lounge, providing the perfect setting for enjoying live music, drinks and appetizers. For a more rustic experience, Anderson’s Cabin offers a mid-mountain private dining experience for up to 10 guests. Boasting sweeping views of Colorado's Beaver Creek, the cabin is the original home of John Anderson, one of seven bachelors who settled the area in the 1900s.

Ume Lounge
Niseko, Japan

Nature and adventure are equally abundant in Niseko Village; so, too, are the opportunities to enjoy them. With nearby mounts Yotei and Niseko Annupuri serving as the backdrop, Higashiyama Niseko Village, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve offers unrivaled access to the outdoors. A deep reverence for nature extends to the indoors here, as well: Enjoy your après in The Ume Lounge, where natural design elements are inspired by the surrounding bucolic beauty, and classic cocktails are served fireside.

Lake Tahoe, California

Hit the slopes at Northstar California resort, home to more than 3,000 acres of skiable terrain, before retreating back to one of the après-ski experiences at The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe. Enjoy regionally inspired cuisine with sweeping views of the Sierra Nevada in The Living Room, sip on modern twists on classically trained cocktails at Highlands Bar or indulge in what may be the ultimate wintertime culinary activity: Making s’mores at the fire pit, where a marshmologist fills you in on the history of the marshmallow and traditional s’mores ingredients.

Restaurant, panoramic view to the mountains
Almaty, Kazakhstan

With the largest ski resort in Central Asia just 20 minutes away, The Ritz-Carlton, Almaty is ideally situated for guests who want to explore both the mountains and the city. Unwind after a day on the slopes with an après scene that’s anything but boring at the hotel’s Sky Bar and Lounge, which is one-part visual drama, two-parts sophistication. Perched on the hotel’s 30th floor, guests can relax over breathtaking views of the Almaty skyline or the Tian Shan Mountains while enjoying a curated selection of cuisine and a beverage menu replete with classic cocktails.

Santiago, Chile

Nestled at the base of the snow-capped Andes mountains, Chile’s capital Santiago is a veritable skier’s paradise — and there may be no better place to unwind after a day on the mountain than The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Santiago. Tucked away within the hotel’s upper floors, the spa is a rooftop sanctuary rooted in healing and relaxation, and the pinnacle of it all is the stunning indoor pool. Enveloped by a glass cupola and adjoined by an outdoor terrace, it’s the perfect place to soothe sore muscles while gazing out over the mountain peaks and planning out tomorrow’s runs.
