Mr. Luxury Ski
Just a snowball’s throw from Sun Valley’s Warm Springs Lodge and next door to the office of Sun Valley Heli Guides, Apple’s Bar & Grill occupies one of the best addresses in ski country: 205 Picabo Street. The address is apropos; his dive bar plastered with classic ski posters is a cherished haunt for Ketchum’s pros, a crew with pedigree including Olympic podiums, World Cup globes, and epic ski films. This après institution also supports the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation, and is the premier place to watch World Cup racing all winter.
Siddle up at the bar to toast a day of snow riding over microbrews on draught whether you slid in off Bald Mountain or just landed from a heli-ski trip. As you might expect, Apple's grill is known for churning out tasty burgers, but don’t skip the smoked ribs if they're on special—the half rack is the perfect protein snack to keep your après ski party going into the night.
