Every local has their favorite watering hole and every ski town has some great ones. While we can’t guarantee that a visit to one of these bars will give you that warm fuzzy, “I’m home, mom” feeling, we can say that if you’re looking for a warm place with cold beer to end up when your day is finished, these fine establishments should be at the top of your list. And if your favorite isn’t here, don’t be shy, let us know by posting your recommendations in the “comments” section below. —Tom Winter
