About Arapahoe Basin

Tucked away high along the Continental Divide in Summit County, Arapahoe Basin is hidden in plain sight. With steep terrain, open bowls and rocky features, it’s as close to a big mountain proving ground as you’ll get with such easy access to Denver. When the weather is good, the traverse- or hike-to terrain of the East Wall offers steep powder lines. And when it’s stormy, the tight and full-of-features tree runs around Pallavicini lift will get your adrenaline pumping. Although there is no lodging right at the base area, options are diverse and range from high-end at Keystone to super affordable about 25 minutes down the road. Frequently battling Loveland for first Colorado resort to open, A-Basin also stays open late into the spring making for a wonderfully extended ski season. Seven months or more of this mountain every season? Yes, please.

On-Hill Tip: Explore the Alleys, skier’s left from the Pallavicini lift, for steep tree skiing that can hold the best snow on stormy days.

Off-Hill Tip: A-Basin’s “beach” is among the best spring skiing scenes in North America. Get there early, bring your grillin’ gear and make sure you have a sober driver.
