Arapahoe Basin Ski Area
Dillon, CO 80435
- Sun, Sat 8:30am-3:30pm, Mon-Fri 9am-3:30pm
Many consider Arapahoe Basin, endearingly known as A-Basin, to be one of the most underrated ski areas in the state. It certainly has the longest season -- usually from mid-October to early June – because the north-facing slopes get less sun and the snow sticks around. A-Basin is a sibling of Breckenridge and Keystone, and while it may not have their amount of acreage, it has plenty of steep glades, bump runs and and out-of-bounds skiing. It also has the best parking-lot parties of any mountain in the state.
Elevate your experience this winter by skiing or riding A-Basin! Come shred the rocky steeps, spruce glades and rolling natural terrain that's made us "The Legend" in Summit County.
