april 11th skoolies beachin at the Basin!!!

Hear ye Hear ye april 11th at Arapahoe basin the will be some reserved beach parking for any and all skoolies to celebrate the start of spring and whatever else ya'll can think of celebrating fo no reason at all! I'll buy a lift ticket for any skoolie that can make it up the hill of hills. Thats right folks were talking 11,000ft+ free lift tickets and free beer and food to be sponsored by your highcountry locals. Personally, I'm hoping to have my version 2.0 skoolie with a kickin' solar sound system and upper deck in full effect by this time. Solar at altitude is intense. Either way we'll be beachin' at the basin and all are invited to the festivities whether it be bus, truck, car or pale legs. "we gonna do what they say can't be done!" You don't ski or snowboard you say? Come on up anyways and I'll put you to work holdin' down a lawn chair. I can hardly wait to see the view of the skoolies from the top of the mountain! Road conditions permitting!

Re: april 11th skoolies beachin at the Basin!!!

Contrary to how it might seem on the surface. And while it may be freezing and blowing sideways quite often up here in our high-altitude wonderland, truth be told when it comes to the high-altitude sun you can't beat the intensity. It can be 30 degrees in the shade and 60 degrees in the sun! no foolin'. I'd also like to add we'll be takin' requests and ideas to help this thing get as fun as it can be. It's not been uncommon in the past to see rented hot-tubs; hand crafted slip and slides and even the occasional inpromptu live-band to keep the people who don't care to venture up the hill more than content. Bring it people!

Let's up the ante for some motivation. I'll fill any wvo skoolies tank with filtered liquid gold if they can make it and give them an outlet to plug into if they aren't rolling with solar. Let's see...... what else is it gonna take people?

Humm free fuel? If I had veggie goin in my bus, I'd try to make it for sure.

I really hope fuel prices stay reasonable this summer, my bus sat parked most of last year...

Hey I'm there! Anyone who doesn't show up won't know what they're missing. We still got time for a deep fry-off? All grease will be turned into fuel.

Re: april 11th skoolies beachin at the Basin!!!

Now we are a talkin'! Deep fry off 09' The die has been cast. Pretty sure that I can get my hands on a couple of pro-grade fryers on some kind of loan. Might as well have a griddle and a frickin' salad bar. (cogs begin to grind) I was thinkin' some kind of fire pit that sat above ground maybe like a burn barrel would help deter ullhers blade.(for the unannitiated ullher is the norse god of cold ass partyin) Believe I'll be bringin' some fat elk steaks for the barbie!

Re: april 11th skoolies beachin at the Basin!!!

some days you wish you had six wheel drive. But, actually the road is usually clear and mostly dry on your average spring day. While it may get nasty we'll just have to wait and see. Best case is that it is clear and then dumps all day leaving the busses trapped with nothing to do but keep on keepin' on with fresh turns and cold beer.

Re: april 11th skoolies beachin at the Basin!!!

So, now this thing is going to get crazy! We are wokin' on the deep fry off being sort of a restaraunt(spell) v.s. restaraunt competition. That means lots more free food and more insanity. Got to get one or more of our local breweries to comp some kegs now! This is all got the support of the resort now so theres no limit to the fun!
