Living in Breckenridge, Colorado, for six years, I’ve spent the few years toiling to find all the “hot” spots for après-ski. Mind you, my initial motivation for après was all about beer and nachos. Nothing wrong with that, but now my pallet revolves around wine. So, let's start with the basics... Simply put, I love wine! Luckily for you, I've done the research for you, and here is what I have found.

Il Rifugio – Arapahoe Basin (a.k.a A-Basin), CO

With the highest elevation point in Summit County at 12,500 ft., Il Rifugio's views are as stunning as their wine and charcuterie board selection. This amazing experience is only accessible by chairlift and requires skiing down after. At the time of publication (due to Summit County Public Health Restaurant guidelines), Il Rifugio is closed but looking to open up by spring with outdoor dining.
