ARAPAHO E BASIN

SKI - - RESORTS OF THE YEAR 2019 -

EP One of the long­est ski sea­sons in the West, an au­then­tic lo­cal vibe, and a new ter­rain ex­pan­sion should land this home­grown Colorado fa­vorite on your bucket list this sea­son. From its throw­back A-Frame base lodge to the Ba­con Bloody Mary at Black Moun­tain Lodge, A Basin is an homage to the very best parts of the sport. And the ter­rain: Bomb down the steeps of Pallavicini Face, test your met­tle on East Wall, or sam­ple the goods in the Steep Gul­lies—the most ex­treme ter­rain at a re­sort known for its ex­treme ter­rain: tight chutes, high vert, high con­se­quence. Be pre­pared for a 20-minute hike back—just the way the lo­cals like it.
