Arapahoe Basin's Early Riser parking lot is home to a stretch of prime real estate known as "The Beach." The Beach backs up to the three lower mountain chairlifts and is the perfect spot to kick back between runs with family and friends. It's a scene unique to the Basin, and a guaranteed good time! The Beach often plays home to birthday celebrations, reunions, company parties, and other special events.
Due to its popularity, the Beach fills up fast. There are generally 15 spots available for reservations (dependent on snow conditions at the base); the rest are first-come, first-served. Space #1 is closest to the Black Mountain Express Chair, the Mountain Goat Plaza base area, restrooms and Food and Beverage services. Space #15 is closest to the Molly Hogan Chair with easy access to the Pallavicini chair. Each spot has room to park two vehicles and comes with a picnic table.
