First time snowboarding in Colorado, i usually use the blue slopes in Michigan, but found the green slopes too steep here. ... Full Review
Great Mountain. Just found some of the lift attendants have attitude like Matty from Conn. Ruins the experience... Full Review
A-basin is a spin back in time with steep terrain and easy going folks. My only complaint is often ski patrol and their friends make fresh tracks all day on "closed" runs and exclude paying expert skiers like myself from getting some pow turns. I understand patrolling for safety but open it to all experts not just your private group. Overall, you guys do an awesome job. Thanks... Full Review

I've been skiin AB for 60 yrs, and still do. Great $$ value, even tho "back in the day" a ticket cost $7.50!! Seriously!! But times change, but this mtn stays one of the best for the serious skier. One of the first to open and for sure! the last one to close in Spring. I skiied 2 times in June at this place! What a riot! Ski, get a burger at mid-mtn, and do it again!... Full Review
Love the mix of steeps and trees and the food at mid-mountain is excellent and at a good price. ... Full Review
A-Basin as an awesome ski resort, especially if you are a local and want a place with more community.... Full Review
Overall, a fun mountain with a variety of choices for advanced terrain. ... Full Review
It's cheaper and stays open for the longest. Resort and the crowd/skiers there are both very hyped up. I avoid certain toughest runs so after skiing for a few times I start feeling bored here. ... Full Review
