Girdwood Bars & Pubs
This cavernous, slightly rundown bar at the base of the mountain is a great spot for après-ski. You’ll find an extensive selection of tap beers and good whiskeys, along with large portions of traditional bar food like burgers and pizza. And as with any après-ski venue, it can be loud and wild, even on weeknights.
Alyeska’s Sitzmark Bar and Grill offers alpiners the best of both worlds – daytime refueling between ski runs, and a festive nighttime hangout with live music, open mic, trivia and movie nights. (The summer season has similar offerings – just think “après hike” or “après bike” instead of “après ski.”)
