Arapahoe Basin Ski Area
Arapahoe Basin Ski Area information
Near the Continental Divide where US 6 crosses 11,992-foot Loveland Pass, 6 miles east of Keystone Resort and 90 miles west of Denver, Arapahoe Basin, aka A-Basin, is Colorado's second oldest, and North America's highest ski area. Locals dig it because the lack of lodging and dining options (it's a day-use ski area only) keeps the package tourists away.
You come here for powder, and powder alone. It's home to well as Summit County's most extreme skiing.
