Full review

I visited Arapahoe Basin and several other ski resorts in the area during March with a few friends from school. A-Basin was a great local spot with short lift lines and non-crowded runs. The terrain was good for everyone, there were tons of greens, blues, and blacks to fit every type of skiier or snowboarder. I was snowboarding and noticed quite a few runouts where I had to unstrap my bindings and push my way 'down' the run. If you want to go for a little hike and can ski the terrain, head up the mountains on the back side to the chutes and steep double black area of Montezuma Bowl--it's well worth it. The snow at those areas was untouched, as many people didn't want to exert that much energy. Next to Vail (simply because of its size), this is my favorite ski spot in the Eagle/Summit area of Colorado.
