SKI TOTAL TOP 3 – Party Resorts
Are you going on a Chalet Ski Holiday and love a good party? Here are our top 3 ski resorts where you can enjoy world class skiing and snowboarding during the day and dance all night long!
Val d’Isere is a gorgeous, well kept and prestigious resort in the heart of the Alps. It provides incredible daytime scenery with thriving cafés and bars throughout the day with the Mairie (Mayor) keeping the streets snowy and white, scattered with giant ice sculptures and incredible decoration, it truly is a beautiful town. Val D’isere is also home to the Espace Killy ski area neighbouring Tignes, giving you a fantastic skiing and snowboarding experience.
When the lift stops, the sun begins to drop and the wintery nights take hold, it’s time for the evening to begin! Val d’Isere boasts over 30 dazzling bars for every kind of night out. From the glitz and glamour of Blizzard (be aware of the price) to dubstep nights in Kristal, you can have a completely different night every night of the week. Various pubs and clubs will offer you the best aprés artists of their generation, such as The Dominoes, The Elements and Mullett rocking late into the night. You can also head to see some of the craziest dance/electro swing/dub step DJ’s in the bigger clubs and dance the entire night away (if you can handle it)! Then… do it all over again!
Méribel is another top après and nightlife haven, sporting the likes of Ibiza Rocks, its own La Folie Douce and our sister company’s very popular Meribar. The town itself might not have the same prestigious appeal as Val D’isere, but has a completely different vibe and clientele. The resort tends to be younger with a more laid back feel, and provides you with great snow parks and the opportunity to head to neighbouring resorts of Val Thorens and Courchevel (with the 3 valleys lift pass).
As the evening starts to come in and you drop off the tables at the Folie Douce it’s time to head to the fantastic Ronny (Rond Point) open air aprés pub to get things going, the toffee vodka here is in abundance and with reasonable prices you can really get your buzz on before heading out for the night! Dance for a while at the Ronny, then take yourself off into the main hub of town where you will be guaranteed to once again find the best aprés bands in the Alps! Jacks Bar, La Tav, The Pub and the Meribar are the places to be with incredible drinks offers competing with each other. When it’s time to dance the nightclubs in town offer various nights of different music such as dance, house, hip hop and dub step. Want to dance all night? Head to O’Sullivans or The Loft for a real beating evening where you can dance to 5am!
St Anton has for a very long time been renowned for being the height of the party in the Austrian Alps. Incredible skiing in one of the deepest bases of snow in the Alps, gives you the perfect all day session on the slopes. The resort is linked to various other resorts such as St Christoph, Lech and Stuben with superb skiing and snowboarding. The Arlberg area is as well known not only for its fantastic skiing and off piste haven, but also for its fantastic après scene.
The night is closing in, the temperatures are starting to drop and it’s time to get your nocturnal side out. The first place to go when you’re still wearing all your ski gear is the famous Mooserwit Bar, described as the Austrian Folie Douce. It boasts more beer sold per square meter than any other bar in Austria. Based on the Blue 1 run situated just 400 metres from the centre of town it’s super easy access straight from the slopes. Head to Taps for some excellent Apres DJ sets with the notorious Taps girls enticing everyone to get up and dance on the bar! The famous Krazy Kangaroo boasts the best DJ’s in the area that will mix up the sets night by night! To really take the night to a new level head to Kandahar, this place stays open all night and offers some banging tunes. Fancy something a bit more chilled? Head to the late night bar; Piccadilly!
