Visiting Breckenridge this spring? Would you like to combine all the spring/summer fun of hiking, biking, swimming with a little taste of skiing? Well you can still do that on your spring trip to Breckenridge by taking just a short 25 minute drive to Arapahoe Basin Ski Area (A-Basin).
Everyone loves spring skiing, especially at A-Basin because you can hit the 'Beach' as locals refer to it as. Back your car up in the main parking lot by the chair lifts and pull your tailgate down or your trunk up for a fun summer-like BBQ after you hit the slopes. Neighboring cars will be doing the same as music is playing, grills are out and coolers are stocked with cold refreshing beverages. Some people even set up their sun tent providing for a fun festival vibe. Spring skiing is at it's finest, especially when you time it on a bluebird blue sky day. You may even see people skiing in their bathing suits or costumes. Smiles, hooting and hollering and fun for people of all ages can be had.
On a good snow season, A-Basin Ski Area can stay open into the early days of June. If a festival of spring skiing is calling your name on your spring visit to Breckenridge area, ski rentals are still available. Dust off the dirt on your hiking boots and go have some fun in the sun playing in a little snow.
