Last minute trip- spring skiing still open!! We have a toddler and wanted him to try snowboarding lessons for him- so glad we did!! J.D was his instructor and was absolutely amazing with him. Well worth it! Friendly staff.

We had a great time at A-basin. Great conditions, laid back atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff. Kids snowboarded 2 days for free. Spent a lot of time on the bunny slopes.

I don’t recall any right at the chair lift. We stayed at Keystone in a condo by the village and drove to the basin lift and went up the lift to the wedding reception. It’s only a 10 minute drive from Keystone. Google it... More
