The Mountain at the Legendary Arapahoe Basin Ski Area
The Legend isn't any ordinary ski mountain; we earned our reputation from decades of pioneering and experience. With a summit elevation of 13,050 feet, visit the Swiss Alps right here in the Colorado Rockies. Set at the base of the Continental Divide on Loveland Pass, A-Basin offers over 100 expertly carved trails, boasting above-timberline bowls and deep powder stashes. Whether you're interested in groomed cruiser runs or if chutes and glades are more your style, the Basin has it! Elevate your experience this winter and see why Arapahoe Basin is called the Legend.
Since 1946, Arapahoe Basin has been serving up a fantastic ride for skiers and riders from Colorado and all over the world. We're often the first in Colorado to open - if not the nation - and the last in Colorado to close. Arapahoe Basin receives over 350 inches of snowfall annually.
