We’re kicking off our Summer Events season this weekend! First up – Yoga on the Mountain outside at Black Mountain Lodge this Sunday at 9am. You’ll hike to mid-mountain, get in a solid hour of instructor-led yoga, and then enjoy lunch at the Black Mountain Lodge (you need to see this menu… it sounds incredible). Limited space remains for this event, so grab a couple pals and register! #namaste http://bit.ly/yogamtn
Al's Blog: 6th Alley Hiccup arapahoebasin.blogspot.com We have a little hiccup in our 6th Alley Bar and Grill program. It will continue to be open from 11-4 Saturdays and Sundays. This weekend, though, there is a little hitch. The Triple Bypass bike ride is going over the Pass Saturday and Sunday. State Patrol will be closing the highway to public traffic from 10 AM until 2 PM both days. We will still be open, but hard to get to. Maybe this weekend you could:-Stop by after 2 for a late lunch and a drink.-Arrive at The Basin before 10, go for a good hike, enjoy lunch, and drive down after 2.-Or, if you are a Triple Bypass rider, you could skip the gross energy bar and stop here for a good salad, soup bowl, sandwich and more.Anyway, it is a small hiccup and we are sorry for the inconvenience.THE 6TH ALLEY BAR AND GRILL IS OPEN THIS WEEKEND.
Al's Blog: Argentine North Fork Trail arapahoebasin.blogspot.com Over the last week I have been up and down the Argentine North Fork Trail three times. It is in fine shape. There are a couple of very small snow patches, but they are disappearing quickly. While most of it is dry, there are some wet spots. As you travel the trail on foot or on bike, be sure and take it easy through the wet spots. The road from mid-mountain to the Summit is also mostly good for hiking and riding. During and immediately following the snow melt is time to be an extra good steward to the land. Walk and ride gently and don't be afraid to get off the bike for the wet areas.The trail was designed by Joey Klein from IMBA. He also did much of the construction and taught our crew how to do the rest. I can't thank him enough for this A-Basin gem.
