For some people…skiing is just a vehicle to après! Yes,
that time frame late in the afternoon where everyone comes together
to tell tales of their ski day, brag about big air, and toss back a
few brews. What enhances that experience? Live
At Beaver Creek, Shannon Tanner has been getting people up on
stage to sing with him for nearly two decades. It's a
family-friendly show, and McCoy's is huge so you can invite
everyone and have a great time! Top requested songs?
Shannon has sung Sweet Caroline, Margaritaville and Brown Eyed Girl
more times than he can count. During sunny afternoons, try to
get a table on the deck.
The oldest and probably most famous après spot in Vail is The
Red Lion on Bridge Street. Meet your friends over one of
their Colorado brews on tap or grab a bite to eat. New this
year, Shawn Eiferman's singing the tunes you know and love.
It's a damn good, sing-a-long time, so get there early, it fills up
If you're looking for Phil Long this season, he's left his post
at the Red Lion after 25 years and is taking his guitar and
keyboard downstairs to the Shakedown Bar, Vail's premiere live
music joint. He's still singing all your après ski classics
from 5-9 PM Wed.-Sat. and new this year, they are bringing in
delicious bites from the Tavern on the Gore.
For the thick-skinned: Vail Underground! Steve
Myers, the "Good Times Man", offers up the most rowdy après by far…
Steve loves to make friends, or not make friends fast by constantly
insulting the crowd and coercing them into buying shots for the
whole bar, costing customers $100's - so bring lots of cash!
But it truly is a not-to-miss experience, once again, for the thick
skinned. You will not see a show like this anywhere else!
