3. Killington, Vt.

The Wobbly Barn's flammability isn't as much of a concern as its structural integrity. A group of fraternity brothers shoddily pieced it together in the '60s from the remains of several old barns. The original structure still stands today, and concerts at The Wobbly Barn define the Killington après scene. Just don't dance too hard.

A totally normal scene at The Wobbly Barn.

"The Beast is a badass mountain so much terrain you never have to ski the same trail twice and the access road has more places to eat drink and party than you can shake your ski at. The party scene is outstanding with the Wobbly Barn leading the way and plenty of other places to eat and drink the night away. The best mountain and nightlife on the east coast period the end. "

9. Stratton Mountain, Vt.

Skiers who call Stratton home know that when the gondola stops spinning, the taps keep flowing at Grizzly’s. Located right in the main base area, Grizzly’s hosts events and specials all season long with live music from local bands daily, and because of its proximity to local lodging, you never have to rock-paper-scissor for a driver. New for this season, Grizzly's closes at 4pm on Saturdays and reopens with live entertainment at 8:30pm as Grizzly's Night Club. On sunny days enjoy a locally brewed Long Trail Ale and work on your goggle tan outside on the deck.

Pizza and beer, what more could you ask for in your après

"It is a great place to ski mid-March and mid-week when the snow is still GREAT!!"
