Arapahoe Basin Beach Regulations & Pricing for the 2017-18
Arapahoe Basin's Early Riser parking lot is home to
a stretch of prime real estate known as "The Beach." The Beach backs up to the
three lower mountain chairlifts and is the perfect spot to kick back between
runs with family and friends. It's a scene unique to the Basin, and a guaranteed
good time! The Beach often plays home to birthday celebrations, reunions,
company parties, and other special events.
Due to its popularity, the Beach fills up
fast. There are generally 15 spots available for reservations (dependent on snow
conditions at the base); the rest are first-come, first-served. Each spot has
room to park two vehicles and comes with a picnic table.
