A-Basin offers free disc golf on their par 3 18-hole course, starting in the base area, climbing to the top of North Fork then looping around to the Pali and back to the base area. This rolling par 3 course and fun hike is open seven days a week through the summer.

Aspen Snowmass

At Snowmass, guests can enjoy the first and only place in Colorado to boast two 18-hole courses. Aspen Mountain boats one of the world's highest official disc golf courses.

Disc golf at Aspen Snowmass is free, but guests must purchase a gondola ticket to reach the course at the top of each mountain.

Crested Butte

Ten-Three at Crested Butte is eighteen holes of pure fun for beginners and seasoned players alike and was recently named one of the top 25 courses in America. The course begins at the top of the Red Lady Express Lift and meanders to within easy strolling distance of the base area.
