Where To Find The Best Après Ski Spots in New Hampshire

For some, hitting the slopes is just a prelude to the best part of skiing-the after party. Après ski in New Hampshire isn't as wild as out west, but you can count on food, fun, and great local craft beer. Here are our favorite places to warm up.

Après Ski Near Loon Mountain & Waterville Valley


1. Woodstock Inn and Brewery
135 Main St, North Woodstock, NH 03262 | (603) 745-3951

Expect quality craft beer brewed on site, delicious appetizers, and a roaring fire in the bar area. Woodstock Inn is a hit with locals and visitors for good reason. Their sweet potato ravioli and a pint of Frosty Goggles, a spicy red pale ale, are the perfect reward after a day on the slopes.

Voted Best Après Ski by The Conway Daily Sun, Delaney's is a warm, welcoming neighborhood bar with top-notch food. They're renown for their sushi (no really, we covered it here) and award-winning wings. There might be a wait, but you won't find a better sports bar to catch the Pats game in.

3378 White Mountain Hwy, North Conway, NH 03860 | (603) 356-6381

Need to refuel after a long day of skiing? Moat Mountain Smokehouse is known for their generous portions. Long Horn Nachos, topped with house-smoked brisket, are a must. Wash them down with one of Moat Mountain's award-winning craft brews.
