Stranahan’s Opens Apres Ski Lounge At Vail’s Westin Resort

Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey will be the centerpiece at Vail’s Westin Riverfront resort.

A statement from the Colorado whiskey maker notes that the all-new Stranahan’s Après Ski Lounge will be an immersive dining and drinking experience set in a private, life-sized whiskey barrel.

From now until Sunday, April 2nd, the heated Stranahan’s whiskey barrels will be available daily for après ski from 1 to 5 p.m. on the resort’s Stoke & Rye patio.
