Killington Makes International Top 5 Après Ski Scenes List

Wow! Look at that! ShermansTravel (www.ShermansTravel.com) puts Killington in the Top 5 of après ski winter destinations. But you knew that already, didn’t you?

The link to the full article is below, but here’s how it breaks down:

1 :: Aspen, Colorado
2 :: Bariloche, Argentina
3 :: Chamonix-Mont Blanc, France
4 :: Cortina, Italy

ShermansTravel.com (via MSNBC.com) ranks Killington Vermont in the Top 5 Apres Ai Scene Worldwide5 :: Killington, Vermont
A nod also must go to this East Coast winter favorite, where legions of skiers and snowboarders enjoy snow-filled action at the base of the mountain. Indeed, while Vermont’s largest ski resort lacks any sort of quaint alpine charm, the slew of restaurants, bars, lodges, and shops along the eponymous Killington Road more than compensates. Two après-ski staples that everyone must sample — the Wobbly Barn (WobblyBarn.net) and the Pickle Barrel (PickleBarrelNightclub.com)— are both found here; the former, set in an old barn, is a popular haunt for happy hour and keeps the night going with live bands and a crowded dance floor, while the latter, a larger nightspot that doubles as a music venue, has hosted a variety of lesser-known and up-and-coming acts, like G. Love & Special Sauce, Howie Day, and Eddie Money. For those craving a high-class evening, fabulous Hemingway’s (HemingwaysRestaurant.com), an elegant New American restaurant ranked among the best in New England, beckons.

6 :: Lake Tahoe, Nevada
7 :: St. Anton, Austria
8 :: Telluride, Colorado
9 :: Whistler, Canada
10 :: Zermatt, Switzerland
