Originally affiliated with the Over the Hill Gang International (which today exists in Copper), the Loosey Goosey Group (LGG) has been loosely organizing the 50-plus population committed to celebrating and sharing the joys of living and playing during the snow season in Summit County for more than 30 years. Please note, additional costs may apply for Après ski activities.

Starting the first Thursday in December, the group holds weekly Après ski parties at the Summit County Community and Senior Center, culminating in the Arapahoe Basin Beach Party the first Monday in April. Attendees and group members are asked to bring a dish to share.

The annual Arapahoe Basin Beach Party will be on Monday, April 6, starting at 11:30 a.m. with the option to ski before and/or after. If you wish to attend, please bring a side dish, salad or dessert item to share; the main course of barbecue will be catered by A-Basin. Water, wine and beer will be provided. Weather permitting, the party will be held outside on “The Beach” so please ensure all food items, dishes, serving utensils, chairs and personal belongings are heavy enough to avoid blowing away.

In the case of bad weather, we will host the party inside the A-frame on the 2nd floor; however, due to Colorado liquor laws, the Loosey Goosey Group will not be able to provide wine and beer inside the A-frame. If desired, group members can purchase drinks at the 6th Alley Bar.

Our annual Awards Party will be held on [TBD] and winners of the Most Improved Skier/Boarder and the Nancy Macey Spirit award winners will be posted on our group blog and Facebook page.

Newsletter updates resume October with information about the upcoming ski season.

Senior Golf Program

The Summit County Seniors Golf Program is an excellent way to meet other seniors who have the same passion for the sport. The golf courses in the area are beautiful, challenging and provide opportunities for players of all skill levels. Golf courses in the program include the Keystone River and Ranch courses as well as the Raven Golf Club at Three Peaks.

Three programs exist for the senior golfer…

  • First, the golf program coordinator has arranged discounted green fees at each of the courses identified above for senior members. To participate in this program, seniors must be up to date on Summit Seniors membership dues and have purchased a Seniors Golf Card at the Senior Center for $5.
  • Second, Boomers on the Links: The Seniors Golf Program promotes and supports a weekly Tuesday clinic at the Keystone River Course. During these outings, participants play nine holes of golf, receive a group lesson and are treated to lunch for a reasonable price. Those interested in this clinic should contact the Keystone Pro Shop at (970) 498-1520 to reserve a spot.
  • Finally, special golf outings are arranged at courses apart from those mentioned above. These outings give the senior golfer an opportunity to try courses not played before. The group aims for two special outings in the summer during July and August.
