Summer Is Almost Here

We have just a few days of skiing left and Summer is right around the corner. If you like The Basin in winter you will love it in summer. The Aerial Adventure Park, in the base area, is fun for anyone with an adventureous spirit. The Via Ferrata, high on the East Wall, is a physically challenging hard core climbing experience for those looking for a serious mountain challenge (climbing experience not required). Our new Beavers Loop Mountain Biking Trail offers an approximately 10-mile bottom-top-bottom ride. 80% of the ride is on single track, including all of the descent. There are plenty of other fun things to do including chairlift rides, disc golf, hiking, dining, events and more.

For more details or to book the Aerial Adventure Park or Via Ferrata, go to A-Basin Summer

Honoring Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a time to honor and mourn those who lost their lives in the United State Armed Forces. A-Basin's founding and history will be forever connected to those who served in World War II. Marnie Jump served in the Navy in Pearl Harbor while her husband Larry served with the 10th Mountain Division. 10th Division soldiers were trained in skiing and winter mountain warfare at nearby Camp Hale, recently designated a National Monument.  

Nearly 1,000 10th Mountain soldiers were killed fighting in Europe. The Division was most famous for their battle victory over the Germans on Riva Ridge in Italy's Apennine Mountains.

Following the war, many 10th veterans went on to play prominent roles in the ski and outdoor industry including: Slim Davis a US Forest Service snow ranger and ski resort pioneer, David Brower with the Sierra Club and Friends of the Earth, Pete Seibert, Bob Parker and Bill "Sarge" Brown, Vail Resort founders and trail blazers, and of course, Larry Jump, Arapahoe Basin's first President.

Please take today and every day to honor those that have served and those that have died so we can enjoy freedom in this great country.
