Santa visits A-Basin!

Holiday festivities begin at the Legend

Saturday, December 22, 2012

The kids (both big and small) of Summit County and beyond were surprised to see the man in red himself – Santa Claus – skiing around Arapahoe Basin today! Santa and his number #1 elf, Greg, walked through the A-Frame and base area, greeting everyone and handing out candy canes and peppermint patties. Santa and Greg the Elf posed for pictures, partook in complementary cake and wassail (prepared by our Food & Beverage elves) and even took some turns on Molly Hogan and High Noon. Santa will be skiing (on telemark skis) for a while longer this afternoon because the days aren’t quite as bluebird back at the North Pole as they are at the Basin.

Not only did A-Basin bring Santa to our mountain, but we also released our Holiday 3 Pass, which gives our guests three days of skiing or riding with no blackout dates, as well as one half-price lift ticket for a friend, for $158. If you have relatives or friends visiting this season, you can give them this legendary gift. This pass will be on sale through February 18, 2013.

From all of us at Arapahoe Basin – Happy Holidays, and cheers to a SNOWY 2013!
