Apres ski becomes even more appealing this weekend when Bon Appetit brings its annual food-and-wine gathering to Beaver Creek. The magazine’s editors and consultants, including editor-in-chief Barbara Fairchild, join chefs from local restaurants like Spago and Grouse Mountain Grill for Iron Chef-like cooking competitions, culinary classes, and gourmet dinners.

South American cuisine gets a special nod this year with the festival’s Argentine wine seminar and Brazilian cocktail class.

Wed-Sat, Jan. 28-31, times vary
