Colorado’s legendary Arapahoe Basin is famous for spring skiing, typically staying open through mid-June or into July. Bring your skis or rent at the hill. If you’re looking for company, connect with Denver ACA member Doug Mandic for a local’s tour of the terrain and a homebrewer’s perspective of the local beers on tap at the 6thAlley Bar.
Trout fishing in mid-May is right on the bubble between perfect early spring clear rivers and the fast-flowing, murky water of late spring. A safe bet for May is the dam-controlled flows of the Upper Colorado River, and you’ll be right in time to take advantage of the salmonfly hatch. (We’ll be a little early but trout will still strike at them.) Numerous companies offer guided trips, whether you’re wading or floating.
