Après-ski bar in the Austrian ski resort of Ischgl.

Après-ski (French: after skiing) is going out, having drinks, dancing, and generally socializing after skiing.[1][2] It is popular in the Alps, where skiers often stop at bars on their last run of the day while still wearing all their ski gear.[3] The concept is similar to the nineteenth hole in golf.

Après-ski is particularly popular in Austria.[citation needed]
