La Folie Douce is a legendary piste-side apres ski bar that opens early in the afternoon. Think Ibizan beach party, but on the snow. The DJ starts his set around 15:00 and really gets the show going with the help of professional singers and dancers. The huge outside decking area is full almost every day with tourists and seasonaires alike partying until the sun goes down over the mountain peak. La Folie is located half way down the OK piste on the way to La Daille. If you unsure of the location, just follow the pumping music, you'll be able to hear it from miles away!
Cocorico is Val d'Isere resort centre's answer to La Folie Douce, located just off the Rond Point roundabout underneath the Solaise bubble lift. It too has a large outside terrace and gets busy around 15:00 with live music from 16:00 and a DJ from 18:00 to 20:00.
Bars like The Fall Line and Victors have a more relaxed atmosphere, where you can take a seat and still enjoy good drinks and live music through the week. Saloon and Moris Pub are also great options for a drink after skiing, where you can enjoy a few games of pool or a couple of games of beer pong whilst enjoying reasonable prices on drinks.
If you are after a more stylish form of apres ski then try Les Barmes de l'Ours Bar, located next to the Face piste. Here you can enjoy the open fire, piano music and a wide selection of fine wines, beers and spirits. For cocktails, head to bar M at the Tsanteleina Hotel. In La Daille, try the Le Samovar Bar, grab a comfy seat by the fire or out on the terrace and reflect on your days skiing.
