The Germans are a giving people: Even though the original (and absolute best) Oktoberfest still resides in Munich, the party has spread throughout the world—and certainly throughout ski country. This fall, you can hoist your steins and prime yourself for winter at any number of resorts from East to West (lederhosen and dirndls optional). Here are a few of our faves.
Ski resorts across the New World celebrate the 190 year-old German tradition of Oktoberfest with Bavarian music, food, dancing, beer, and other festivities in autumn alpine settings. Check out our top picks for an Oktoberfest near you.
