Summer at A-Basin

Open daily for summer activities: June 26 - September 7, 2020
Open Fridays-Sundays: September 11 - 27, 2020

Summer at A-Basin is off the beaten path and at a higher elevation than anywhere else in the area. When people think of an authentic Rocky Mountain experience, this peaceful, natural and rugged place is what they’re imagining.

A-Basin sits adjacent to the Continental Divide with incredible views, cool temperatures and no crowds—offering visitors a high-alpine, big-mountain experience between 10,780 and 13,000 feet. All activities take place in the trees or on the mountain, putting visitors right in the midst of a stunning landscape covered in wildflowers and visited often by a resident mountain goat herd.


Aerial Adventure Park 

If you are familiar with ropes courses and challenge courses, you have a rough idea of what an aerial adventure park has to offer. Our park is built directly into the trees on the slopes of our mountain. You can barely see it from beyond the forest and once you’re in there, you’re surrounded by pine trees and mountain views.

Our park will offer seven different routes: two for little kids ages 3-5 (recommended), and five others ranging in difficulty from beginner to intermediate. The aerial adventure park is a unique experience and a fantastic outing for families, friends, groups and corporate events.

Via ferrata is Italian for “iron way.” Via ferratas are rock climbing routes that involve fixed steel cables,  iron rungs and the use of a harness. A-Basin’s via ferrata is being built above treeline on the famed East Wall, a popular hiking route for expert skiers and snowboarders in the winter. 

Participants will be set up with climbing equipment and guided along the route adjacent Little Lenawee Peak just below 13,000 feet (the guide will be required for access). This half-day adventure will be one of the most unique  summer experiences in Colorado.
