After Ski Entertainment

Europeans call it “Après ski” … that select time of the day when the last run is finished, the winter sun sets early on Ski Apache and a warm, relaxing sensation fills your body … hard-earned from a day on the slopes. Ski Apache’s Main Lodge Spirit Bar offers a wonderful venue from which to kick back after a day of riding the slopes. A full bank of windows provides a beautiful end-of-day panorama as the Bar serves all your favorite libations. A friendly staff ensures great service and you’re guaranteed to meet some of the nicest folks with whom you may share your Mountain experience. After the Mountain, some will retire to a quiet hot tub, a soothing fire and a comforting beverage while others venture out into the evening and keep the fun rolling. For those seeking the nightlife, The Inn of the Mountain Gods Resort and Casino and the mountain village of Ruidoso offer more than any visitor could experience in a single visit. At the Inn of the Inn of the Mountain Gods Resort and Casino, Las Vegas-style gaming, including slots, craps, blackjack, poker, roulette and more will tempt you to stay out past your bedtime. This nearby resort also offers a variety of nightlife and dining options including world-class dining in Wendell’s … incredible offerings at the Gathering of Nations Buffet, a classic sports bar with the Big Game Sports Bar and a live music venue in Club 49. And, Wendell’s Lounge features some great local musician’s with a quiet comfortable bar as well. Take a look at Ruidoso for your evening’s options as well. Midtown Ruidoso offers quality dining, lounges and places to kick up your heels as well. Win, Place or Show is a friendly place with live country music every night of the year; The Quarters is a large venue for the younger set where DJs keep the house rockin’. Pasta Café offers a street-side lounge with music on the weekends as well. Don’t forget about the Spencer Theater either. This 500-seat venue is one of New Mexico’s premier live entertainment showcases.
