Ski Season will begin 10/9/09

Tuesday, October 06, 2009

Arapahoe Basin ski area officials announce that its opening day for their 2009-2010 ski season will be Friday, October 9, 2009, the ski area’s earliest opening in history.     


The Exhibition chairlift will open to the public at 9:00 a.m. Friday.  Skiers and riders can look forward to an 18-inch base on the intermediate High Noon run and six features in the High Divide Terrain Park.  There will be no beginner skiing.


A-Basin congratulates Loveland Ski Area for being the first ski area to open in North America when it opens tomorrow.  It’s nice to see our neighbor take the crown this year, but we will be back in the race for the 2010-2011 ski season.
