Gold Medal Ski-Lodge Style: The Best Après-ski Looks for Men


On the mountain, technical gear is key. But once you’re done shredding for the day, it’s about comfort—and looking good. Below you’ll find our picks for the best clothes to wear away from the slopes. And, let’s be honest, hanging at the lodge for après-ski is nearly as much fun. In need of a good recommendation?

Try snow-covered Lake Placid Lodge (seen in these shots and the video above) in New York’s Adirondack Mountains—site of the 1980 Winter Olympic Games—where cross-country skis and snowshoes are waiting for you.

It’s tough to decide whether to hit the trails that abut the property or retire immediately to one of the majestic suites with fireplaces and lake views. This is the quintessential lodge—from its proximity to nearby skiing at Whiteface Mountain to the blankets and s’more kits available on demand and the large soaking tubs to heal your muscles après-ski. That is, if you make it to the slopes.
