Eldora, Brodie Kick 0ff Season Pass Sale

This Saturday, January 9,  Arapahoe Basin will open the Pallavicini chairlift, serving several runs to the east side of the lift including West Wall, Upper Slalom Slope, and Grizzly Road. The Norway lift will be running on weekends and holidays and will take the skier and rider from mid-mountain to the summit.  Snow cats and ski patrol have also been preparing Montezuma Bowl for its opening.  A few more storms and that area should be ready to open in the near future. Alan Henceroth, COO and GM for Arapahoe Basin, product tested the new terrain today, “The skiing on Slalom Slope is fantastic.  It’s powder skiing.  Everyone needs to get out there."
