How to Apres in Nelson

When the lifts finish spinning for the day at Whitewater Ski Resort, the après-ski scene in Nelson starts to ramp up. From breweries to crafted cocktails, restaurants, and tried and true local faves, you’ll quickly discover why Nelson is recognized as one of the best ski towns in North America.  

Tap into the beer and other refreshments at our craft breweries:

  • Angry Hen (Kaslo)
  • Nelson Brewing Company
  • Torchlight
  • Backroads

Dining is always a pleasure with over 80 restaurants across the region. View our dining map and listings to help make your decisions. Use the "Cuisine Filter" to drill down to satisfy your craving of Italian, Thai, steaks or fusion and more. 

After satisfying your palette, take in a show at the Civic Theatre, Capitol Theatre or Langham in Kaslo to capture the local Kootenay experience. Live music happens all over the region. Visit the Kootenay Calendar to see what's happening, or ask a local.
