A-basin is one of the harder ski areas in the US. It only has a few green runs, but lots of blue runs off of the Lenawee lift and the Norway lift. There is only one blue off of the Pallavicini lift and there is about five blues in the Montezuma bowl but the access to that is terrible. There is no pay parking here! The parking is very convenient. The High Noon lot gets pretty full most of the time, but it usually never fills up completely. If your an advanced/expert skier wanting to try a double black I would either go on the Zuma Cornice or the Pallavicini. If you take the Pallavicini the easiest double black to go on would be Pali Main Street. At the beginning of the day the Exhibition lift gets busy so if you are Intermediate or better go on the Pallavicini because there is a blue called Grizzley Road. If you are going to eat go to the Black Mountain Lodge and get their Maccaroni and cheese it is great for mountain food. A-basin is a great ski area
