A Basin is a throwback. Like Loveland on the other side of the pass, it is a smaller, less expensive alternative to the "Stay and Play" resorts further up I70. Don't let this stop you. Even being smaller, there are runs for everyone. Steeps and trees and Montezuma bowl along with groomed and beginner runs. No turbo lifts, but no big lift lines either. Honestly my only real gripe is how flat the light can (will) get, but that is true anywhere with so much open terrain above treeline. And the fun doesn't stop when the skiing does. Basin is as known for the Beach as it is for the Wall runs.
