If there's one place where tailgating and skiing intersect, it's at A-Basin's Early Riser parking lot every spring. Just steps from the lifts, The Beach goes off nearly every weekend (and some week days) as skiers toting barbeques and beach chairs celebrate the final weeks of the season, which often lasts into June.
