Arapahoe Basin 2009

With a summit of 13,050 feet, a season that often stretches into July, and some of the most talked-about expert terrain in the Rockies, it's not hard to see why the word "legend" is often applied to A-Basin. But the perception the tag leads to - that A-Basin is too tough for mere mortals - simply isn't true. Fifteen percent of the terrain is rated beginner; another 45% intermediate. Those are the sort of numbers that attract families with younger children, and they're the visitors who have fueled A-Basin's continuing popularity.
