Thank you for a great summer! Disc golf and mountain biking will re-open in the summer of 2020.
The longest ski season in Colorado makes us The Legend, but so do our stunning landscape, great food and chill vibe--all great things that carry over into summer. Experience high-alpine views and a remote mountain feel while not being far away from a delicious bacon bloody Mary and house-smoked BBQ. A-Basin in the summer is peaceful, beautiful and casual.
