COVID-19 Closure

This evening Governor Polis, by Executive Order, directed all downhill ski resorts in Colorado to suspend operations from March 15 through March 22. Governor Polis Executive Order

We support the governor making this very difficult decision. While some folks encouraged us to close, hundreds, if not thousands, of people have asked us to stay open. We tried our very best to be creative and modify operations to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. I know that many of you want to be here and many of you had a great week skiing here. This closure saddens me deeply. Unfortunately, it is time to close.

We have every intention of re-opening. The very best skiing at A-Basin is yet to come. As soon as it makes sense to re-open, we will re-open. It is unclear when that will be. I plan on sharing several East Wall hikes and skis with many of you this spring.

Uphill Access will be open to Uphill Pass holders. All rules still apply. Remember the East Wall, Beavers and Steep Gullies are closed to uphill users. Other closures may be in place.

This is a brutally difficult time for Colorado, the nation and the world. We need to work collectively to get through it.
