Aprés is not the main draw to Big Sky, but there are a couple of places with great atmosphere where you can grab a beer when you come off the piste. In typical Big Sky style it is more about quality than quantity. Chet’s Bar and Grill is one of the original hangouts – watch out for the Crazy Austrians Comedy show which is on weekly and draws a big crowd. Whiskey Jacks is another crowd pleaser where you can enjoy live music in the afternoon right as you come off the slopes. Lastly, for something a little more upscale, try Carabiner where you can sample a fantastic menu and even better wine list which will help relax those legs after a big day on Lone Peak!


Another great après activity is dinner at the Montana Dinner Yurt, 2 miles up the hill in the woodland of Lone Peak lies the dinner yurt; accessed by snowcat once you arrive there is an opportunity to enjoy a torchlit sled run and campfires outside before entering the candle lit yurt where will enjoy an exquisite candle lit dinner. This is a truly magical mountain experience!
