Perfect Après Ski Locations in Ontario

ToDoOntario - people having fun at apres-ski

2024 UPDATE: Check directly with the host to ensure there is enough snow for the activity.

If you recall from your early days of learning French in elementary school or middle school, “après” stands for “after,” and “après ski” refers to the social gathering and celebration of a day’s hard work of shredding those slopes. Here, the food is warm, the drinks roll out, and everyone has a good time. 

If you’re looking for the best après ski spots for your snowy weekend getaway, keep reading. In this post, we’ll share three of the top ski resorts in Ontario with the perfect venues for an after-ski celebration!

Deerhurst Resort

Only two and a half hours outside of the city of Toronto, Deerhurst Resort is the perfect getaway location for your weekend ski trip.

It is conveniently located next to one of Ontario’s friendliest ski hills–Hidden Valley Highlands Ski Area. This ski hill is great for winter hiking for large groups and beginners who may not have absolute confidence in their skiing skills.

Purchasing a Ski and Stay package with Deerhurst Resort gives you and everyone in your group:

  • discounted accommodations
  • discounted full day ski lift tickets
  • access to a variety of outdoor activities including snowshoeing in Ontario and kick sledding for a nightly resort fee


Deerhurst also has a ton of snow activities on site like cross country skiing, snowshoeing and a skate trail. They even have a special ‘apres snow’ menu to help you warm up.
