Arguably the best part of skiing is après ski, am I right? If you're waking up at 6 a.m. to hit the slopes in the freezing cold (or lounge in a rustic chic lodge all day—whatever works), you need to have a totally warm and cozy après scene waiting for you, complete with a fire, amazing appetizers, and alcohol, obviously. Sure, a cool bar or trendy restaurant works, but this Veuve Clicquot ski lounge a total game-changer. Once you see it, you'll want to book a trip ASAP. You've been warned.
Not only does the offer world-class skiing, a ski concierge, and mountainside cookies and hot chocolate when you're fresh off the slopes, but they also partnered with Veuve Clicquot to take their ski lounge to the next level.

Set right at the base of the slopes, you can walk right into the orange-colored yurt when you finish a run, and you'll find an eclectic, cool mix of rustic, country French, and cabin-style decor. Think buffalo check chairs, zebra print rugs, and vintage French prints.
It's open every day from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. (but guests usually linger closer to 6), and you can relax with your friends and order up some bubbly or small appetizers, like black truffle popcorn, house-made BBQ chips, or a cheese and charcuterie board.
Even if you're not a skier, you'll become one for this.
