Finish the day with apr├Ęs
There’s nothing like the feeling of having your first drink after a long day of skiing, and Vail’s après scene is just as popular as the skiing. With ample options ranging from local favorites to high-class cocktail bars, it’s not a true ski vacation unless you close out a day on the slopes with some delicious adult beverages.

Grab a wiener schnitzel at Pepi's
