The only thing better than skiing is après-skiing. Luckily, Alpine is home to some of the best post-ski festivities in Tahoe.
After a long day on the slopes, head to the main lodge at the base where you'll find the aptly named Last Chair Bar. Post up with friends for some local micro-brews or specialty cocktails (the martinis are a must, while the signature Alpine Bloody Mary is perfect no matter what time of day you order it), then dive into some of the joint's legendary nachos and a few rounds of tapas (try the Ahi Chips).
As for the calories? Indulge guilt free -- you've got another big day on the slopes lined up tomorrow. Last Chair Bar is open daily. For more information on Alpine's tasty dining and après options, click here.
