Arapahoe Basin sits high along Loveland Pass in Summit County, Colorado and home to great steep skiing, long groomers and a friendly vibe that welcomes guests of all ability levels. The ski area has been in operation since the winter of 1946 and is continually one of the first resorts to open and one of the last to close. Located approximately 60 miles from Denver, the mountain is a great option for skiers traveling from the front-range.

A-Basin is a great option for all ability types offering up some excellent expert terrain combined with long wide groomers and a learner’s slope for beginners. With 109 trails and eight chairlifts, the ski resort sits at the base of the continental divide and has one of the highest base elevations in Colorado.

Terrain options are plentiful with high-alpine bowls, tree glades, chutes, wide-open groomers and amazing off-piste options. The East Wall contains some of the most difficult terrain within the resort boundaries. Skiers and riders can access the upper East Wall, home to double-black expert terrain, via a steep hike or traverse to the lower East Wall without hiking.

Arapahoe Basin is home to some of the highest skiable terrain in North America. The current A-Frame lodge located at the base area was once used as a missile testing facility but now offers up multiple dining options for visitors.
