Arapahoe Basin - A Colorado Legend since 1946

For many years, the idea has been kicked around about writing an A-Basin history book. We all agreed that was a good idea, but none of  us had any idea how to move it forward. Out of the blue in early 2017, Cathleen Norman walked into my office selling her services as a writer of history books. That started a great journey that I thought would take about 6 months. Cathleen did an extraordinary amount of research conducting many interviews, reviewing thousands of old photos and articles, diving into the Larry Jump Collection at the Denver Library and reading Larry's personal, unpublished memoirs. Despite actually taking 3+ years, working with Cathleen on the the project has been pure fun. The writing is now complete, the design and layout is finished and the book is off to the publishing house soon. I don't quite know how long that phase will take, but, maybe by mid-summer, you can look forward to reading, Arapahoe Basin - A Colorado Legend since 1946.
