Arapahoe Basin, Colorado
Arapahoe Basin pioneered the early days of Colorado Skiing with the first ski lifts opening in 1946. Since then the
lifts have been modernized but one thing still remains the same. That is the outstanding skiing with an average of over
30 feet (9.1 m) of snowfall each year. With so much snow, and Arapahoe Basin's high elevation, skiing at the 'Basin'
normally lasts until mid June! Arapahoe Basin expanded by 80% in 2008 with the opening of Montezuma Bowl adding
34 intermediate and advanced runs.
The skiing and snowboarding at Arapahoe Basin is truly legendary. A traverse along the East Wall will nearly always result in finding new
powder to ski. The famous West Wall with it's cornice provides a spectacular vista while it challenges you to leap off
its edge. But perhaps the most famous run in Colorado is Palavicinni. This run ranks as one of the steepest, longest,
and most challenging in North America. It is in fact, not really a run, but a natural avalanche path that has formed over
the years by the forces of nature. Today the Arapahoe Basin Ski Patrol controls the snow to render Palavicinnii safe for skiing.
