Aerial Adventure Park Training

We have had a busy week training both returning and new Aerial Adventure Park Rangers. They have been focused on operating the equipment, communicating with guests and helping people get out of a bind. It looks like a very fun team.

This Spring we added even more excitement to the Park. We tweaked some features to make the Golden Eagle course more challenging and exciting. We have also added 3 new ziplines. We will open for business next Friday, June 24.

Bighorn Sheep

I have seen the bighorns several times over the last few weeks. They very consistently hang out along the highway about a mile below the resort.

Melting Fast

The remaining snow is melting very quickly. Once the drivers stop working the snow and we get into those warm, long days of June, we see a rapid transformation. Time to start thinking about hiking, biking, Via Ferrata and the Aerial Adventure Park. Our scheduled opening for summer operations is June 24.


 

Cat Drivers Keep Us Going

Arapahoe Basin is able to stay open late for many obvious reasons. The front side of the mountain is North facing and at a very high elevation. To top that off we gets lots of snow and we have a small, but very good snowmaking system. What is not quite so obvious is all the work that our team of cat drivers do. For the last several weeks of the season, they diligently doze, push and consolidate the trails that we finish the season with. These also happen to be the trails with snowmaking. Every year, the drivers are solely responsible for extending the season a few weeks. They are magicians with those blades.
