Arapahoe Basin Ski Area (A-Basin) will open for the 2017-18 ski and snowboard season on Friday, October 13, 2017. The Black Mountain Express lift will start turning at 9:00 am, giving skiers and snowboarders access to the intermediate High Noon trail. Arapahoe Basin is often one of the first ski areas to open in North America. A-Basin mountain operations will continue to make snow as weather permits with the goal of opening additional terrain.
"Mother Nature has been kind to the Basin," said Alan Henceroth, Arapahoe Basin's Chief Operating Officer. "It's exciting to kick off the ski season earlier than usual, and welcome winter back to Colorado."
