Let’s face it, the best part of skiing is the après. We will put our fear aside and take on a black diamond if we know there’s an exceptional dish and libation waiting at the end of the run. If you’re packing your bags for a few more winter hurrahs on some of the top slopes before beach season, we’re 120% here to help you find the best places to eat and drink. These three CurEaters have lists in some of the most popular ski destinations in the country.
This list is it. Aside from some of the best spots to grab an after-the-mountain drink, it’s also got some pretty good eats. Whether you want a glass of wine, burger and fries, cocktail, or elk loin, you’ll find a place for each on this list. Jenn Rice definitely has her finger on the top bites in one of the top ski destinations.
CurEater and Chef Kenny Gilbert lists his favorite restaurants in Telluride, and they’re all extremely different. Looking for the pub vibe where you can sip a brewski and eat a burger to recover from a day on the mountain? Try Smuggler’s Brewpub. If you have a hankering for authentic Thai cuisine, check out Siam. Maybe you just want a classic cheese pizza that makes you feel right at home. Well, Brown Dog Pizza has you covered on that one. You never know what you’ll crave once you conquer some of the most difficult slopes. Clearly, Chef Gilbert’s cravings differ, so you’re in luck.
With 12 spots on this list, it will be hard to pick your favorite. We would definitely start our day at Persephone Bakery because their milk toast caught our eye. We’d absolutely find our way to Hatch Taqueria and Tequilas for, yep, tacos and tequila. There really is something for everyone in Jackson Hole, so let Carrie’s list act as your field guide.
