Arapahoe Basin, Keystone, Colorado
U.S. Highway 6, Keystone, Colorado 80435| Map |
Know to locals simply as A-Basin or “The Legend,” Colorado’s Arapahoe Basin has been a popular family destination since 1946. More than 400,000 visitors from all over the globe flock to this beautiful mountain for the sweet pow (that’s powder for out of towners) and fantastically friendly staff. This is real Colorado skiing, though it may not be as shiny and flashy as other major resorts in the area, Arapahoe Basin takes skiing and fun seriously. Sporting more than 100 trails and boasting an impressive 350 inches of snowfall a year on average, A-Basin is an obvious choice for a day on the slopes. Little ones will have a blast at the kids-only ski school, which is great for children as young as 3, while teens and older skiers dig the deep bowls and fantastic freestyle park. Though the mountain features a plethora of tasty dining options, moms and dads will also love A-Basin’s Moonlight Dinner Series featuring top quality cuisine and drinks under the full moon...a 13,000 ft. Definitely a date night to remember! Close to great mountain towns like Dillon, Silverthorne, Frisco and Breckenridge, Arapahoe Basin is a Summit County must see.
