Kids in Arapahoe Basin Snowsports received a space to call their own, as we completed construction on a new three-story, 7100-square-foot, $2.3 million Kids Center geared toward our younger snowsports students. A-Basin’s Kids Center
is a place for kids in lessons and programs while they're at the mountain.
The building also houses kids’ ski and snowboard rentals, snowsports lesson check-ins, a kitchen and dining space for snowsports students, a new first aid room, an employee locker room and expanded office spaces for Ski Patrol.
In keeping with A-Basin's commitment to environmental stewardship, the A-Basin Kids Center was outfitted with solar energy panels, low-flow toilets, and a low-energy lighting system.
The décor of the space is nature-themed in the spirit of A-Basin's on-mountain ecological education areas like Lynx Lane, Mountain Goat Alley and Moose Hollow. The informational posters and artwork in these spaces teach children about the mountain environments in which they play, and help them to gain an appreciation of how special
The A-Basin Kids Center also houses a new, state-of-the-art First Aid Room, complete with private examination and waiting areas, new beds and medical equipment, and ski patrol offices.
