Après-Ski in Winter Park

As all of our accommodation in Winter Park is in the mountain village, the post skiing après usually kicks off here., although there’s plenty of choice downtown too. Expect to have a beer or two followed by dinner up in the mountain village, and then head downtown on the free shuttle for a wider selection of restaurants and bars.

Derailer Bar

Classic Colorado après spot for an end of the day beer on the sundeck, or inside at the bar. Expect a good range of beers on draft, some quirky cocktails and a small choice of the usual appetizers we all love.

Docs Roadhouse

Doc’s is the slopeside location for the best in innovative local Colorado comfort food, and quality après vibe. With a happy hour that extends from 3pm-6pm daily, this is the bar that most skiers gravitate to at the end of the day. It offers a wide selection of local beers. Try their Whisky flight as your starter for ten.

Vertical Bistro & Tap

This is a great wee bar serving delectable small bites, American comfort food and shared plates using locally sourced ingredients. Pull up a chair at the bar where you’ll find a good selection of draft beers, signature cocktails and wines from around the world. Located a few steps from the village centre.


Classic Mexican cantina food, margaritas and local brews served in a relaxed setting at the base of Winter Park mountain. Lime is part of a chain which has outlets in Keystone (next to Breckenridge) and down in Denver.
