Hard To Believe

It is hard to believe we were open for skiing 6 days ago. Once we get to the longest and warmest days of the year, the snow can melt in a hurry. High Noon still has a bit of snow, but Ramrod and Sundance are almost bare. It feels like summer around here.

Thank You

From all of us at Arapahoe Basin, we would like to thank everyone that joined us this season. You guys make The Basin great. Our team of employees gathered Monday afternoon, let their hair down a bit and celebrated another very special season. The group is fairly skilled at socializing and Monday was another great example of that.

This Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the Aerial Adventure Park, The 6th Alley and Arapahoe Sports will be open. There won't be any skiing, but come visit while we watch the last of the snow melt and gear up for a fun summer.

Again, thanks so much for making A-Basin part of your life.

Special Closing Day

It was a special closing day. Spirits were high. Lake Reveal was going off. High Five owned Mountain Goat Plaza. The best part of it all was the smiling faces. I think people were really enjoying themselves. The snow was fun although we would have been challenged to stretch more days out of it. The pre-COVID Basin is back. Thanks for a great season.

Lake Reveal Emerges

Today was perfect. It was sunny most of the day. The goats were all over the place. The snow was good.  ..........Lake Reveal emerged and skiers and riders made the best of it. I hope you can join us Sunday for closing day. It will be more of the same great stuff. The weather is supposed to be sunny again (most of the day). Come celebrate the end of the weirdest ski season most of have ever experienced.

Lake Reveal is growing by the minute.

Family Day

I think the Kelly Family figured out a pretty good way to spend a Spring day together.

Old Friends

I know it is almost summer when I start seeing CJ Mueller (former speed skiing world record holder) at The Basin. It is hard to pry him out of Breckenridge, but A-Basin's spring corn usually does the trick. This morning we shared a few really fun Lenawee rides laughing and telling stories all the way. We timed the Cornice Run / West Wall snow perfectly and carved some sweet turns. CJ's passion for skiing is always inspiring for me. Makes my day to catch up with him.

Final Week

I had an enjoyable ski this morning checking out Humbug, Lenawee Face, Cornice Run, West Wall and more. The snow was soft and carve-able. A couple mountain goats were hanging out at the top of Zuma Lift. And there isn't much sign of Lake Reveal yet.

Closing day will be this Sunday, June 6. I hope you can make it up one of these last five days.

Aerial Adventure Park Opens Saturday

The Aerial Adventure Park will open Saturday. Three of the Five courses will be available. I spent some time in there the last couple days. The Park is so much fun. Fun, I guess, if you like being outside and climbing and scrambling in the woods with your friends and family.  Over the next two and half weeks, the park will be open May 29, 30 and 31 and June 4, 5, 6, 11, 12 and 13. It will open seven days a week starting June 25. Check out the website for more details and to make reservations.
