There’s no time like springtime to hit Arapahoe Basin and a day at The Beach. Pack the car, grab some friends and some sunscreen, and hit the road early to secure prime time real estate at the top beach spot in the county, The Beach at A-Basin. Sunny days, spring skiing and riding conditions, and this endless season of snow are sure to make The Beach a perfect set up this spring.
Beach time is always a guaranteed good time, and a great excuse to bring friends together to celebrate birthdays, reunions, company parties or special occasions. The Beach backs up to three lower mountain chairlifts, so allows for the perfect access and time to kick back and relax in A-Basin’s unique setting.
Due to its popularity, The Beach fills up fast. There are generally 10-15 spots available for reservations (dependent on snow conditions at the base); the rest are first-come, first-served. Reservations can be booked here, and are $200 per spot Monday-Thursday, and $250 per spot Friday-Sunday through May 19, 2019. From May 20 through the remainder of the season, spots are $100. Each spot has room to park two vehicles and comes with a picnic table.
