Cloud Nine Alpine Bistro
A huge part of the appeal of skiing is the promise of the aprés ski scene afterwards, and this spot on the top of Highlands, conveniently equipped with bubbling raclette grills, is definitely the place to be at around 2pm. It’s undergoing a controversial expansion right now, and while locals worry that too much space will ruin the charm, it hasn’t slowed them down quite yet. Expect to see people on tables in ski boots until 4pm, when ski patrollers join the party and promptly kick everyone out. P.S. Champagne (for drinking or spraying) is definitely the order of choice here.
