Category Archives: Arapahoe Basin Snow Conditions
IT HAS ARRIVED!!! The 2012 – 2013 Ski Season officially begins TODAY with the opening of Arapahoe Basin Ski Area! Arapahoe Basin is a ski area located on the Continental Divide in Summit County, Colorado. The Mountain opens today with 9 ski-able acres and 2 trails – so don’t get out those new powder skis quite yet! Arapahoe Basin fights each year to be the first mountain in Colorado to open, and they have achieved this feat yet again this season. Hats off to the crew over at Arapahoe Basin for getting everyone on the snow early this season!!
During its peak season, the mountain boasts a vast East Wall with hike-to and backcountry style skiing, along with the Montezuma Bowl off the back side, which is great for some backcountry style tree runs and open terrain. A-Basin is one of my favorite mountains to explore during the peak season, but I would also love to get out there today to shake of the cobwebs. A-Basin is also located about 7 Miles from Keystone, and about 15 miles from Breckenridge – and the best part – you can ride all 3 mountains with just 1 pass!! Call a destination specialist today to start planning your 1 or 3 mountain vacation! (855) 210-2469

Still no snow up here in the Colorado Rockies, and at this point we are praying for better luck next year (which is now in 4 days). I have a feeling that the lack of snow in December only means more snow and bigger storms in January, February and March. This is very exciting, so make sure one of your New Year’s Resolutions is to come out and ski some powder in the coming months. Be sure to contact us at Rocky Mountain Vacation Rentals to make planning your short trip or lengthy vacation a breeze.
