Let your friends know in advance that you will be outside the entire time. You will all want to wear your warmest jackets, hats and gloves.
Après-Ski literally means "after skiing". It is the rendezvous at the base of the mountain when the slopes shut down around 3 or 4pm.
APRÈS-SKI DRINKS TO SERVE
Warmth is the key word here. You want a drink that you can warm your hands on. A classic Après-Ski drink is Vin Chaud, also known as Mulled Wine.
Traditional Après-Ski fare is rich, hearty and comforting. If you are meeting for a cocktail, I like to serve a simple cheese and charcuterie board accompanied by my homemade baguettes.
