R. SCOTT RAPPOLD'S PICK:

Go skiing

Yes, it's June, but thanks to late-season snow and cold temperatures, ski area Arapahoe Basin is still going strong. Bring some friends, the grill and some cold beers and join the party on A-Basin's famous "beach," where the parking lot meets the snow. Or bring a bathing suit and try your luck skimming across the ponds that form with melting snow. The Summit County ski area was set to close June 2, but was reopened Friday through Sunday. Lifts run from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.. Special lift ticket prices are $45 for adults (ages 19+), $35 for ages 15-18 and $25 for ages 6-14. More information: Arapahoebasin.com.
