    There’s nothing quite like sipping a Bloody Mary at the 6th Alley Bar & Grill after a long day of shreddin’. The A-Basin ski area’s signature cocktail pairs perfectly with each menu item, including the homemade bacon served on The Perch, an outdoor deck spanning the frontside bowls. Savor in one of the views over the entire ski area.
