The Matterhorn Ski Bar

Looking for an authentic ski experience? Look no further than The Matterhorn Ski Bar in Sunday River. Oh, and the food's pretty good too.

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.

Sunday River
The Matterhorn
If a more quintessential après joint exists, we have yet to find it. The Matterhorn’s bar top is made of vintage skis. Ski films loop incessantly on multiple screens. Ski memorabilia from every era clutters the walls. A wood-fired pizza oven grills custom pies, like the Monte Rosa—a mouthwatering mash-up of pepperoni, mushrooms, ground beef, marinara, three cheeses, and crushed red pepper. Pair it with a Ski Bar Beer, add a game of darts, and you’ll have achieved après nirvana. Located at the base of Sunday River’s access road. [matterhornskibar.com]
