UPDATE 4/27 7 am: Hi all - looks like A Basin pulled a bait and switch on us. We got here at 5 am and we’re among the first ones in the lot, but all the beach lots are not free anymore ($250/spot). We’re still at the early Riser lot, but on the edge close to US6. Look for a dark green Chevy Colorado and blue Subaru Impreza with a rainbow flag And a blue canopy tent behind. Should still be a fun day!!

ABOUT US: We are queer (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex) and straight hikers, skiers, backpackers and more. We embrace diversity and celebrate our differences. All orientations, straight and gay, are welcome as well as all gender identities and expressions.
Let’s celebrate a wonderful winter and ski/snowboard season. Join us for a potluck BBQ at A-Basin Beach! We plan to arrive super-early to secure 2 parking spots and set-up a grill at A-Basin Beach.
WHAT: Potluck BBQ. Bring a dish to share and/or stuff to grill. BYOB. Folding chairs/tables, shade umbrellas, games, are welcome. Please RSVP so we know how much utensils, paper plates, coolers, etc to bring. Skiing/snowboarding optional (many of us will do a few runs).
WHEN: April 27 (Saturday), 9 am – 3 pm. It might be a good idea to arrive earlier to secure parking spots closer to the beach. There are free shuttles that can take folks from the upper parking lots.
WHERE: A-Basin Beach – the section of the ‘Early Riser’ parking lot closest to the lifts/slopes. Check attached photo and googlemap below. Link to map here: https://www.arapahoebasin.com/the-mountain/trail-maps/
CARPOOL: Please use comments below if carpooling. A good place to meet would be at the Wooly Mammoth HH lot. Allow about an hour to get to A-Basin from there.
