Arapahoe Basin Apres Ski:

Have a beer at the base or head to Dillon or Frisco. There is no A-Basin town or base village, just food service in the "A-frame" building. Due to the limited base facilities, the resourceful hearty patrons of A-Basin often pull out the lawn chairs to tailgate and barbecue along what is now known as the "Riviera" or "The Beach" along the edge of the parking lot. This is especially popular in spring during warmer weather and later sunsets.
