A great ski day in Utah is not all about the light, fluffy, powder, it’s about the party after. What you do for apres-skiing is just as important as what you do on the slopes. Here are some of the local’s favorite spots to grab some grub, a drink, and kick back with friends after a long ski day.

Looking for a little more flavor? Head down to the Cotton Bottom and try out one of their famous garlic burgers! The dimly lit dive bar is one of Salt Lake’s charming gems that should not be passed up by visitors. But seriously, get the garlic burger, it’s to die for!

3. Lone Star

If you want to do apres skiing fiesta style, Lone Star is the place for you. Between their famous fish tacos or massive steak burrito, you can’t go wrong. The whole menu is great! Sit out on the patio to enjoy the nice view of the Wasatch Mountains.
