A-Basin is the place in Colorado. Great staff, awesome runs, friendly people on the mountain... not a resort which for me is a HUGE plus. Love A-Basin!!!

This was the fourth year in a row skiing Summit County and always visit Arapahoe Basin on a Powder Week Day. No lines. Laid Back. And don't you miss the delicious Lunch at the top of the lift. The Montezuma Bowl.... See for yourself!!

This ski area is very laid back and affordable. Single day lift tickets are cheap and so is the food/drinks. There's free parking. It tends to not be too crowded and is open late into May. The backside has some nice terrain. The terrain tends...More

YES so good. Don't miss the backside! Lots of variety of runs, though I would say beginners will be limited to ~1 lift (which is still lots of fun!). There's a lot of cool terrain, with some for beginners, most for intermediate/advanced, and lots for...More

We had a great time at A-basin. Great conditions, laid back atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff. Kids snowboarded 2 days for free. Spent a lot of time on the bunny slopes.

I don’t recall any right at the chair lift. We stayed at Keystone in a condo by the village and drove to the basin lift and went up the lift to the wedding reception. It’s only a 10 minute drive from Keystone. Google it... More

I agree 100% with Mike. Also, be sure not to wear too much cotton (for layers) as it doesn't help with getting the sweat out of your body. It actually retains it and that would make you feel cold. A-basin is one of our... More
