Après-ski in Le Brévent & Chamonix

Chamonix's reputation as one of the liveliest apres-ski resorts in the Alps is justly deserved. With numerous bars, and even its own micro-brewery, you will find somewhere to cover every taste. 

Apres-ski tends to take place at the bottom of the mountain or in Chamonix itself with the exception of events put on for the Chamonix Unlimited Festival.

The closest Apres Ski venue to Le Brévent is the Folie Douce which is on the Savoy nursery slopes and has live music starting around 3pm. For a later apres-ski party venue, you can head to the legendary Chambre Neuf from 6pm. If you prefer a more tranquil apres-ski scene then there are plenty of quiet and cosy meeting spots for a vin chaud and a chat.
