New Belgium's Mountain Adventure Series returns to A-Basin
New Belgium's Mountain Adventure Series travels to seven locations this year, with three stops coming to Colorado: Arapahoe Basin, Winter Park, and Loveland Ski Area. On Saturday, Feb. 27, the stop will be at A-Basin, with the proceeds going to local nonprofit High Country Conservation Center. The day is for skiers and snowboarders to put on their favorite costume and scour the mountain for clues, both roving and stationary, that relate to the mountain. The festivities end with an awards ceremony for most clues gathered, and for those 21-and-over, the after party includes New Belgium beer.
"This is a great opportunity for the whole family to come out and experience the mountain in a way you've never done before," said Shawn Hines, of New Belgium, in a statement. "We'll have about 20 clues on the mountain that include trivia and things to find — don't be surprised if you see a chicken or bigfoot — and the clues are accessible for most skiers. Costumes are awarded extra points, so don't be the one who shows up without one!"
To participate, teams can consist of one to four people. It costs $10 per person to join, plus a lift ticket. Once signed up, each team gets a list of clues and the games begin.
