The Italians are on to something. What they created as a high-calorie snack before meals, we've turned into an ultimate apres-ski indulgence. Like most everything else on our list, it is highly customizable and is pretty hard to screw up. You'll be hard-pressed to find a base lodge or apres place without some pizza on the menu. It's cheap for restaurants and cafes to make, easy to find ski-bums to serve it, and delicious in all its varieties.
Where to Find: The Legendary Beau Jo's, Idaho Springs, Durango, and Steamboat Springs, CO. It's called a Mountain Pie for a reason. If any SkiNet user can finish their challenge, we'll send you some swag.
Follow it With: Honey on the crust. Trust us, it's delicious.
Most employees are ski bums, so you’ll get a no-fuss, delicious pizza-pie. Order pizza by the slice (perfect for lunchtime), try a giant calzone, or a signature pizza. They also serve subs and salads to please those who don’t enjoy a good pie.
The tastiest beers and burgers are at the Backcountry Brewery, in downtown Frisco. This brewpub is the perfect way to top off a cold day on the hill. Play pool, try a locally crafter beer, and enjoy traditional pub fare, like Onion Rings or a Southwest Chili Burger. Visit BackcountryBrewery.com for more info.
Grab a beer and a mountain of nachos and enjoy an energetic après scene.
Located at the base of the American Eagle lift, you’ll often find local skiers and riders downing a few pints after a full day of skiing. The menu features nachos, burgers, and chicken wings, perfect for refueling. For nightlife activity, this is often your best bet for high-energy après. Endoscafe.com
