legendary ski town hot spots.

Just about every ski town has one, and some more then one. So, let's put togehter a list of the must stop hot spots for every town we can think of. That way we all know where to go when out of town. I know of a few I have been to( and missed too many)...

Killington, VT: The Wobbly Barn

Jackson Hole, WY: The Mangy Moose, Cowboy bar

Steam Boat,CO: The Tugboat

Whislter, BC: Garfinkles

Bottom of the Canyons, UT: Porcupine B&G

Big WHite, BC: Snowshoe Sam's

Fernie, BC: Griz bar

Chamonix: Monkey bar, Cantina, Gay Rage(garage)

Meribel: Dicks

Morzine: The Cavern, Paradise

Boyne Mt., Michigan: The Snowflake






I'll try to keep this up to date and add as others suggest spots for other towns, or additions to the town that I missed. I know have been to more, but my memory off them is a bit blury

nice call on the barn @ killy ale. great place, and basically one of the only in killington anyways, saw many a good bands and drank way too much in that place.

only 2 things that pissed me off in there (and its not even their fault):
#1. you cant drop a glass into another glass. aka no car bombs
#2. you can only have 4 liquors in 1 drink. aka no long islands
vermont has weird state laws like that for some reason

i think we did this on sb.com but maybe we also need the "best secret smoke spots" at each resort...unless you dont want to be giving your spots away...

I love how the WObbly actuallywobbles when it gets rockin. Good shit!

As far as smokin, well, I'll do that just about anywhere. I love hotboxin gondy's and just chillin anywhere in the tree's. Can't beat them Colorado huts though. I think there might be a pic or two floating around. I'll have to look for them.

The Wobbly Barn is probably the most ledendary ski town bar around. Even if it's on the east coast...

yeah. Other then the top three on the list, I don't know if I would actually call the rest 'legendary'.. Not sure of the ones in europe though. I am not even sure if I would want to go to 'dicks' or the 'gay rage' I thnk someone may be trying to pull a fast one there.
