Arapahoe Basin BBQ Kicks Off New Lift and Bike Trail


Get out of the city heat on August 28th at Arapahoe Basin, where you can take part in the first ever summer BBQ. Besides the great food ($12.95 in-advance or $14.95 day-of), you will experience the opening of the much-anticipated Mountain Express chairlift and a brand new hiking/biking trail that the ski resort is now offering.

A-Basin is known for putting on some great all-day parties and this one promises to be no exception. Live music starts at noon but get there early to get a prime spot on the beach—that is, the sandy strip that backs right up to the ski mountain. If you are feeling a little more outgoing, bring a grill and some side dishes to make it a home-style BBQ while enjoying the great selection of craft and microbrew beers for sale at the base. Kids can keep themselves entertained with a hula-hoop making station while adults help out the sustainable mountain at the High Country Conservation Center live auction taking place at 1:00 pm.

This is likely to be the last of the great summer weekends before fall starts kicking into high gear in the high country, so make a day of it and experience the ski mountain from a different side of the spectrum.
