JANUARY IS LEARN TO SKI & SNOWBOARD MONTH... and Arapahoe Basin has a lesson for everyone!

It's never too early (or too late!) to learn to ski or snowboard. This winter, introduce a friend who's never stepped into skis or strapped into a board to Arapahoe Basin. Our two dedicated learning areas provide gradual introductions to lifts and sliding around on snow. We're also offering Super Sunday lift, lesson and rental packages for first time skiers and snowboarders every weekend in January and February.

Super Sunday Specials - Just for first timers!

Every Sunday in January and February, we'll have special lesson and rental packages for first-time skiers and riders. All packages include lift ticket, rental and lesson. Lessons are half-day, morning only (10:00am-12:30pm).
