Arapahoe Basin

Arapahoe Basin (also know as "A-Basin", "The Basin" or "The Legend") is located about 70 miles from Denver in Summit County, on the west side of Loveland Pass.

Open as early as October and as late as June, Arapahoe Basin offers one of the longest seasons of all the Colorado ski resorts, with over 350" of snow per year on average.

The ski and snowboard area sits at 10,780 feet and reaches a peak elevation of 13,050 feet (2,270 feet vertical rise), which makes it some of the highest skiable terrain in North America.

With the addition of Montezuma Bowl in 2008, A-Basin now offers access to 960 acres of terrain, 109 marked trails and 3 terrain parts, all serviced by 8 lifts (accommodating up to 10,700 people per hour).
