Arapahoe Sports Remodel Update

We are making some good headway on the Arapahoe Sports remodel. The excavation work is substantially done. The footers are poured. The foundation walls are poured. The electrical conduits are installed. The slab is poured. I think we will be seeing framed walls going up soon.

We have made similar progress on the deck, walkway, ramp and plaza remodel. A fair bit more excavation work to go. The footers are poured and the concrete forms are being prepared for the foundation wall pours.

View From Highway 6

I always enjoy the view of The Basin from Highway 6 as I am heading Westbound and approaching the entrance to the Upper Parking lots. Enjoy this image taken early one morning this week.

Re-built Entrance To Early Riser

Some of you have been very justified to give me a hard time about how rough the upper entrance to Early Riser has been. The pot holes and lumps on it were horrible. Well, we spent the last couple of weeks re-building that driveway. That involved a significant excavation followed by the installation of geo-tech fabric, softball sized rock and lots of road base. The materials were graded and compacted and the entry is now much, much, much better.


The monsoon has rolled in a bit this week. As I left the ski area this afternoon, it was raining fairly heavily. This is good news for A-Basin and all of Colorado. Portions of the state have been dry with increased fire danger. These storms have delivered some much needed rain taking some of the edge off fire worries. We have been lucky at The Basin. Our very green look will only get greener.

Tree Chutes

Saturday, I took a lunch time hike up to the top of the 6th Tree Chute. It was a short, but very rugged, gnarly and steep walk and climb. I had to use my hands a few times to hold on. As the pictures show, the views from there are extraordinary. Marjorie Bowl (named after Marnie Jump) is off the back of the Tree Chutes. It was in fine form with flowers and greenery down low and mountain goats wandering on the tundra up high. The Basin side wasn't too bad either.

Just In Case You Were Considering.........

If there happens to be a wedding in your upcoming plans, you should consider Arapahoe Basin and Black Mountain Lodge as the venue. Below is a link to video outlining what a great place The Basin is to get hitched. You can't beat this setting.

Also, keep in mind if you are considering holding a fun, non-wedding event in an incredible location for a work or social group, we can host those functions also.
