Good Karma

Many of you have skied since the re-opening. Some of you have not. I have a voluntary suggestion that gets you nothing except good karma. For the last drawing this evening (which is to ski Sunday), if you have already skied a day since the re-opening, don't enter the drawing. Give the folks that haven't skied a better chance of being selected. My request is purely voluntary. Again, you get nothing out of this, except helping some of your unlucky A-Basin brothers and sisters. We are all trying to get through this crazy period together.  And it would be very Good Karma.

You got it. I was blessed enough to get in a day last week.

AGREED!!!
I was fortunate enough to ride yesterday and man it felt great! Spring ski/ride at ABasin felt like a rite of passage. I came home yesterday and took my bindings off for the season.
Thanks to all the Abasin team members for making it happen.
Share the love!!!

Great thinking Al. Today’s version of giving away a ticket to see the Grateful Dead.

I scored 2 days, 2 trips across Lake Reveal. Grateful.

I’m in. I mean I’m out.

The Dead.
The Basin.
Tie-dye.
Basin tie-dye’d shirts.
It all makes so much sense.

See ya this summer.

peace and love,

I've been shut out both my times in the lottery so greatly appreciated to at least get another shot on my only other day off to go on Sunday.

Well said as always Al . . . IT WILL BE A FINE DAY ON THIS SUNDAY !! Having said that, I like to think back to last year . There was no virus and NATURE blessed (cursed) the area near you folks with the massive blizzards in March 2019 that allowed Arapahoe Basin to have an extended season until July 2019 . Always something ! Be Safe ! Chuck Nathan

Agreed. After I got my one day in last Thursday, I decided to hang em up for the season. No need to be greedy. Its better to share especially in these times. Hope someone else that hasn't won a spot yet gets a chance to ski/ride.

See ya this fall!

Thank you Al and team for your efforts with the reopening. It was a joy to ski in the rain today, have a beer/lunch at 6th Alley and get closure on the season. I so appreciate it!❤❤❤

Thanks so much for reopening! The lottery was a great idea and I had a fantastic ski day today. I hope tomorrow is a great last day for those that haven't had a day yet.

Thanks so much for all the effort to get us back on the slopes this season. It was so great to be on the mountain again on Tuesday!

And this was a great idea to help as many people as possible get to have that feeling of joy.

Good morning, I am trying to login to renew my pass and the site does not sign me in. I know my pass number, tried have the site look me up (by pass#, email, name) and it cannot find me. I am not sure if there is an issue with your Database/webpage/or what. I have all correct information required for renewal, not sure what to do please. Thanks

Good morning, on Friday May 9th you wrote “Season Pass Renewal”, on that blog you wrote the deal is good “through June 7, 2020”. Today is June 7th and the web site is not allowing renewal for this deal. The site states: “Buying is disabled for this product”

I'm thinking of renewing my AB pass next season. If the pandemic is not getting better, I
hope we can come up with a more practical way than the drawing system. I can deal with face
covering, social distancing, even the long lift line. But if we have to enter the drawing
each night and HOPE to get in a day or two for the season, then I'm having a second thought.
It defeats the purpose and value of SEASON PASS, right ? Thank you all for the effort and
the great job this season.

We had a power outage that caused some issues with the store. It should work for you now.

Thanks al and the basin staff for a wonderful end of season! Just wondering how you might more dynamically allow guests to ski while respecting the limited sizing. Is a 1 person out 1 person in solution possible? Pains me to see the lot empty at 12pm when the early birds leave and sub 200 people are skiing...
