Hey Ski Bums, Here Are the 29 Best Dive Bars in Ski Country

View as Map

All ski towns live by a work hard, play hard mentality. After all, what could be better after a serious snow sesh or hike than a cold one (maybe three cold ones?). In honor of the Eater Cocktail Week that's happening right this second, Curbed Ski has mapped out the best fancypants cocktails, breweries, and distilleries in ski country, but sometimes, all you want is a lite beer and a shot, pronto. When you're more concerned with saving a few ducats, rubbing shoulders with fellow ski bums, or soaking up deliciously boozy alpine atmosphere, we've got you covered, from Telluride to Killington, Seattle to San Francisco. Presenting the updated guide to ski country's best dive bars. You're welcome. Please note, the following map is ordered from west to east.
