Marnie Jump


Marjorie (Marnie) Jump passed away Thursday at 92 years years of age. Marnie was the wife of Larry Jump, A-Basin’s original president. She was an integral part of the opening, development, and operation of Arapahoe Basin. It is fair to say that without Marnie, it is likely that Arapahoe Basin would not have gone from the idea phase to become a Legendary Colorado ski area. I was lucky enough to meet her a few times and to see her inducted into the Colorado Ski Hall of Fame. Each day we ski and ride at The Basin, we should appreciate the extraordinary gift Marnie gave us so many years ago.
