Arapahoe Basin Ski Area (aka A-Basin) is one of Colorado’s favorite resorts for locals and destination skiers alike. This is a relatively low frills local mountain nestled high up in Summit County offering a wide variety of great terrain to suit virtually all skiers. Due to the high elevation and location in the Front Range, A-Basin is typically the first Colorado resort to open, and last to stay open.
Expert skiers will love the backside Montezuma Bowl with plenty of double diamond runs for those willing to put a little hoof behind earning their runs. The front side offers intermediate and advanced terrain that is scaled in difficulty enabling you to find just the perfect pitch for you individual style.
A-Basin is only 30 mins from the town of Breckenridge so it’s a great excursion for those visiting or staying in Breck. So, you can get a bit of off the path, more backwoods experience and all the great nightlife that Breckenridge has to offer.
