Après-ski in the Vaud Alps

After gliding gracefully down the slopes, experiencing accelerations, crossing fields of moguls on the ski slopes of the Vaud Alps, it's time to relax on a terrace or by the fireside for a moment of festive après-ski and fun.

You have taken advantage of the magnificent skiing conditions, contemplate the spectacular panoramas of the Vaud Alps and the day of skiing ends with a beautiful sunset on the horizon. Extend these good times in the great outdoors by visiting the bars and festive places of our resorts on the way back from skiing.

Whether you are tempted by a cold drink, a glass of wine from one of our vineyards, a local speciality or an old-fashioned hot chocolate, the après-ski cafés and bars offer you a wide variety of delicious products to share as an aperitif!

In the depth of winter, why not sit down at the end of the day at the fireside of an alpine-style bar, sipping a spicy mulled wine. As soon as spring returns, charge up your batteries with the increase in sunlight while enjoying a drink on a sunny terrace.

Sparkling drinks, sweet or dry wine, cocktails or a choice of teas, the most diverse tastes are satisfied. If you're feeling a little peckish, why not stop at one of the Vaud Alps bars to taste the local specialities to accompany your drink. The “aperitif planchette” is extremely popular with everyone after a day on the ski slopes. Composed of artisanal charcuterie and cheeses from the region, it is sometimes garnished with onions and pickled gherkins. A piece of bread, a drink and a planchette, it's the perfect après-ski combination!

Nibbling on some tasty products, tasting a glass of local Vaud wine, meeting skiers from all over the world, getting to know the locals and getting into the rhythm of the music to enliven the après-ski community, enjoy the spirit of this moment. The establishments will do their utmost to entertain you and to ensure you have a memorable start to your evening. Concerts are organised from time to time. Take in the unique atmosphere of the mountain regions at après-ski time!

Extend your day

The perfect way to end your day, why not treat yourself to a nice meal in a restaurant, one of many in the region. Discover the specialities of typical mountain cuisine or venture into the world of original dishes. Local products are available served in many ways by passionate chefs.

Staying with the theme of entertainment and if skiing has given you a boost of energy, why not finish the evening by dancing to the rhythm of the music in a disco or a nightclub. You may even want to sing along!
