    Welcome to the Arapahoe Basin 18 Hole Disc Golf Course. Ben, Taylor and quite a few others have been hard at work all week getting the final 9 holes built. They were opened today. It is a really great, fun and exciting course........and a great walk in the woods. Basically, from where Basket 8 was last season, the holes moves West across the ski area to the old 105 Tower. From there Hole 14 is long, booming shot down Slalom Stadium. We eliminated old Hole 9 and have added another big long closing hole down High Noon to the bottom for Hole 18...............just outside The 6th Alley.

    "Maybe April" plays at Mountain Goat Plaza Saturday. Another beautiful weekend in store. Rumor has it that the back nine of the Arapahoe Basin Disc Golf Course will be opening VERY, VERY soon. Come spend a quiet weekend at The Basin.

    The tundra is green and the wildflower display has been robust and beautiful. I have been sneaking in hikes whenever I can. As I have said before, I can't get enough of wandering around this place.

    Friday night I went to the first concert at the new Dillon Amphitheater. The town did an amazing job. The venue has always been one of my favorite locations to catch a show. With Lake Dillon in the foreground and the Gore Range and Ten Mile Range in the background, the setting is stunning. It is a very cool place to catch up with friends, watch the sunset, tip a pint and enjoy some music. Summit County summers are about as perfect as perfect gets.

    We have had a wonderful first Saturday of the Summer. Euforquestra had a fantastic performance in Mountain Goat Plaza. A number of people enjoyed riding Black Mountain Express. There were Gyros in the base area, BBQ and Black Mountain Lodge and Bloody Mary's in the 6th Alley. There were plenty of hikers and disc golfers about. A very good day

    Kick of the Summer this weekend. Saturday will be fun with EUFORQUESTRA (modern funk and roots with vintage soul) playing from 1 - 4 PM in Mountain Goat Plaza. Black Mountain Express will be open for chairlift rides Saturdays and Sundays all Summer (save a few bucks and buy your lift ticket online in advance). Enjoy a pint and a bite at the 6th Alley Bar and Grill after a round a disc golf. Avoid the holiday crowds elsewhere and experience a new and different mountain vibe.

    Don't forget Yoga Fridays and Yoga Sundays.

    Last Summer we worked to prepare Loafer for the 2017-18 season. We had loggers drop the trees on the trail. Once the trees were down, we had choker setters bundle the logs. Once that was done, the helicopter flew the logs to the Early Riser Lot. Once the logs were gone, the cutters came back in and flush cut the stumps and piled the slash. Somewhere along the way, it snowed a couple of feet. With snow on the ground, we were able to burn the slash piles. Because of all the snow on the ground, we missed a bit of slash. This Summer we are doing another pass, clearing and piling the remaining slash. Once, either the monsoon hits and the forest gets very wet or snow flies in the Fall, we plan on burning the remaining piles and having a very, very smooth Loafer for you.

    Yes, yes, yes, that is "Hobo Village" guitarist and singer Chris Wesson on the chain saw.
