Im questioning something... are we missing something truely magical in Canada? Im talking about proper Apres Ski...
i know, there are some good ones around (i have limited experience, so dont flip out on me for not knowing the gems of Canada), but in general...it just doesnt seem to be consistent... and if we do.. its Irish Pubs or CHiq bars... WTF is this?
Ok. Im from Ontario. Blue has sort of a decent Apres Ski. My winter stint out in Alberta was... well... ok I guess for Apres Ski.
Fernie -> Almost good... but just short of the mark (I seen some posters ranked best in Canada laying around the bar... reaallly?)
Nakiska -> Apres What?
Sunshine -> Debatable if that coutns as Apres Ski
Lake Louise -> Same as above
Revie -> I guess in time.. but there plans are only for more Irish Pubs and non-alpine restaurants
Panorama -> Am I being too hard on these resorts?
Kimberly -> maybe its an RCR thing... but one of the better close to the town experiences
When I was in Europe, something magical existed. Maybe i was just caught up in the excitement, maybe I was biased and held up too great of a bar for Canada... but the Apres Ski there was great. Ski on the slopes, near the end have a stein or two, come down to the village and just enjoy the night. none of this changing out of your ski outfit. Everyone had their skis outside, goggles on their head and the drinks were flowing.
Why dont we have this as common here? And why irish pubs? I know its a safe place in terms of we know what to expect.. but where are the Swiss/Austrian/German places, where Steins of beer are had, warm Gluehwein, Jaeger, radlers (those delicious lemonade/beer concoctions, Fondues and Schnitzels...?
Whats alll of your opinions? Is this something that cant be transfered over to Canada?
Am i way off the mark with my wild acquesations of not having great ones here? Or would you guys be interested in something Authentic, such as a proper Swiss or Tyroler Haus? One with Fondues, with massive steins of beer, and where yodoling is encouraged ;)
