Ski season is in full effect in New England, with resorts throughout the region expanding their open terrain, and the backcountry filling in nicely. But of course, we all know skiing is only part of the equation.
Music was once the main focus of the aprés-ski scene, with ski bars striving to have the best and biggest bands playing on their stage. In the evening, the crowds that shared the slopes would head to whichever bars had the best bands, and would share the dance floor.
While the focus has somewhat shifted (with some exceptions) away from this party-heavy lifestyle in exchange for a more family friendly environment, music in New England’s aprés-ski scene is far from dead.
If you plan on spending time in the Northeast’s ski country this month, here are a few events to check out.
