Apres is a huge part of skiing through anyone's eyes. Whether it be reclining in the spa, heading through the forests on husky sledges or dancing on the tables to euro-pop. It's part of what makes skiing so much fun.
Here we're looking at the table dancing, music blaring, wobbly skiing sort of apres, where afternoons are spent wildly flailing about in your ski boots having the time of your life before scooting back to the chalet for dinner. We're talking survivor breakfasts in the clubs and fancy dress for days.
