Le Chamois and the Loft Bar, known as the Chammy by locals, is the quintessential après-ski bar. Having opened its doors in 1969, it is truly a part of the heritage of the area. The history is highlighted on the walls decorated with heroes that the community has lost as well as ski memorabilia. Le Chamois is connected to a pizza restaurant that caters to the local skiers and families. You are sure to find this place ablaze with festive patrons on sunny spring weekends during the ski season, as this is the most popular of all bars for the after-skiing hour. It offers live outdoor music on some spring ski weekends and hosts the largest Palisades Tahoe (formerly Squaw Valley) locals' end-of-ski-season celebration party (usually in April).
