Austria beats all european countries in apreski, specially Ischgl and St. Anton.

This place was always wild back in the days when I was there, and I reckon it still is: http://www.thelondoner.at/
(Yes and I did the obligatory stint behind the bar there once - without slicing my hand like Tommy Moe...)

I have only been to Zermatt and Cervinia and I don't think either would rank as a big party town. Just wanted to provide a bit of my experience. I'm a non-smoker and have gotten very spoiled by bars in the US either banning smoking altogether or having a decent ventilation system. I couldn't stay inside the bars in Zermatt for very long because the smoke was thick enough to cut. It was February and it was uber-crowded.

I'm up for adoption.

Seconded. Be warned though than in Val d'Isère the party scene is largely UK induced, ie it may looks like home...
As a general rule : Austria. here, you'll party with the locals too.
And I'll add Verbier to the list of good après-ski spots.
Good advice about february.

Edit : What does it say that MetronMan is more interested in partying than skiing ?

Val d'Isere. Lots of drunks Swedes, Norwegians, Irish and British.
Meribel. ditto. a little smaller of a scene though.
Chamonix. ditto. but add a bunch of Americans and Aussies in the mix. Bad apres ski because the place is all spread out.

Ibiza is much more than hordes of noisy drunked Brits, this is what you'll find in Andorra by night.

Can't beat the Krazy Kangaroo!! I prefer Moosevert though, ride down the trail on the right about 200 feet though.

I don't think you can get any better apres ski life than at St Anton Austria. Every day starting at 3 or so, the bars are packed.

February is the busy season, but it's also a lot of fun. Our whole family goes every February for a week to St Anton. Book early and you are fine.

For mere partying you always would prefer Ischgl over St. Anton but o.t.o.h. the skiing isn't even close.
post #20 of 21
I think the Austrians are the best drunks. Forget the Swiss. The French and Italians so-so.

Dick's Tea Bar in Chamonix is still shut from the fire damage, isn't it?

I've never been to Austria but everyone I know without exception says that it's the place to go for nightlife and apres-ski party action.
