Summit County Weekend: Swimsuit Day hits Arapahoe Basin Ski Area Saturday
May 18, 2017
Even with Thursday and Friday's snow, Arapahoe Basin Ski Area is still planning on having its Swimwear Day on Saturday, an employee of the resort said Thursday.
With the snowfall being measured in feet, it should be a great weekend at A-Basin regardless. However, the mountain is bringing back one of its most popular events, and anyone who dresses the part should stop by a tent they will have set up to show off his or her best family-friendly swimwear styles.
Doing so will get the skier or snowboarder a raffle ticket, with a chance to win a Never Summer Snowboard and other great prizes.
Additionally, A-Basin is celebrating Public Lands Day. More than 35 percent of Colorado is designated public land, from the national parks to ski resorts.
As a result, Rocky Mountain Underground, Conservation Colorado and Snowriders International will be partying at the base. For more, ArapahoeBasin.com.
A Broken Compass party
Broken Compass is celebrating its third anniversary all day Saturday beginning at 10 a.m. with complimentary breakfast burritos for the first 50 beers sold.
The party continues throughout the day with live music from DJ Crisp, Norman Wagner, The Amelias, The Hollywood Farmers and El Paso Lasso playing the closing set.
There will also be a free pig roast, specialty beer tappings and more. Entry is free, and people will have the option of purchasing a stainless steel Klean Kanteen souvenir pint glass for $10.
The free pig roast starts at 1 p.m., along with face painting for children and experimental and small-batch brews released every two hours.
Parking is expected to fill up fast, and a shuttle will run from the Colorado Mountain Colorado and skier's free lots for overflow. For more, BrokenCompassBrewing.com.
