The fun at A-Basin really gets going right about the time other Colorado resorts shut down. Thanks to a mid-April storm, the hike-accessed terrain on the famed East Wall, pictured here, opened for the first time all season. Also, the spring parking lot parties are the stuff of legend. A-Basin will be open seven days a week through June 2.
