Après’ Ski

Après-ski (French: after skiing) refers to going out, having drinks, dancing, and generally socializing after skiing. It is popular in the Alps where skiers often stop at bars on their last run of the day while still wearing all their ski gear. The concept is similar to the nineteenth hole in golf. And this is what you can expect in these parties (Scroll down and see some real footage…)

Well, I knew what that concept means (or I thought I knew), that it’s all about socializing after skiing mixed with some drinks, music and lots of people. I remember my first après ski event on the end of the first day of my first vacation to the Austrian Alps. The only thing I had in mind was going back to my room to rest before going out to dinner but going down the slopes towards the hotel, I could hear the loud German music mixed with people joining in and singing loud. I followed the music into an outdoor bar full of skier/snowboarders who just like me were on their way to their hotel.

Girls, Girls and more...

I spoke with the friend I went with and we agreed to have one drink and then continue with our plans. At the end of the day we found ourselves staying there for the entire evening, skipping dinner and just partying with all those people. We just couldn’t leave the electrifying atmosphere and the beautiful girls which were having fun, just like us.  Typical girl view at parties…The next day, all I had in mind was when will the skiing day going to be over and when will the Après ski party begin.

This is what it looks like:
