It's hard to miss Rusty’s. It’s the closest bar to the main chairlift at Blue Mountain (one hopes that makes it an après-ski versus pre-ski hot spot) and come nightfall it’s swathed in a band of lime-green Christmas lights. There's a pool table...

The Marmot Chairlift is a new addition to the mountain which carry skiers from South Pass Traverse, below the existing Thunder Lift, to the top of the Bridger Gondola. Having drinks here wasn't really "après" though, we had to ski down.

When the Romans arrived here in 15 b.c.e., they brought their thermal bath culture, and you can still see the ruins. But newer bains thermaux also abound. The village of Saillon has a Rivière Thermale, like a water park’s lazy river, lined with...
