Most popular ski resorts have many vacation attractions in addition to skiing. Resorts that are reputed more for adults and not recognized as family vacation ski resorts reverberate with a very active night life. People on vacation want as much fun during the après-ski as during the day on the ski slopes. Many resorts all over the world are as well known for their nightlife and après-ski as they are for their terrain.
