Known as the Legend, Arapahoe Basin is nestled high along Loveland Pass about 68 miles outside of Denver, Colorado. Having been in operation since 1946, the Legend offers some of the highest skier and rider-accessible terrain in North America where half of the mountain sits above the timberline with skiing and snowboarding through late spring and early summer.
A-basin features a vertical rise of 2,270 feet and a summit elevation of 13,050 feet with 1428 accessible acres and an average snowfall of 350 inches. The terrain is rated 7% beginner, 20% intermediate, 49% advanced and 24% expert with the signature run Pallavicini as one of Colorado’s longest and steepest trails.
Arapahoe Basin is home to some of the highest skiable terrain in North America. The current A-Frame lodge located at the base area was once used as a missile testing facility but now offers up multiple dining options for visitors.
