Ironically, @Philpug posted this picture of us on the Palli lift from several seasons ago.
According to Al's blog, this is the last season for this lift.
ARAPAHOE BASIN, CO - A PICTORIAL
December 4, 2019

I skied Arapahoe Basin (aka A-Basin) in February and May of 2019. Characteristic of the lengthy ski seasons offered at A-Basin, it was great both times. I've made several visits to this...
IKON PASS ANNOUNCES THE ADDITION OF ARAPAHOE BASIN SKI AREA IN COLORADO FOR WINTER 2019/2020
Ikon Pass Now Offers Access to 40 Global Destinations, Six in Colorado
DENVER, CO, August 2, 2019 – The Ikon Pass community continues to grow with the addition of Arapahoe Basin Ski Area in...
The Colorado Dept. of Transportation will be running busses from Denver to Loveland and Arapahoe Basin during the next ski season. Don't know how many trips per day, but several at $25 for the round trip That won't cure the I-70 congestion, problems, but it sounds like a good alternative to...
Is Beartooth Basin (next to Yellowstone) any good?
How is Timberline (Mt.Hood) this year with apparently low snowpack? I assume it has to freeze overnight (a function of clear skies) for the hardpack skiing conditions to form. Early July?
Is Bariloche worth a $1500 plane ticket?
Looks like Keystone will open in October and Vail and Beaver Creek will have more terrain open at their set opening dates of November 15 regardless of snowfall. So, VRi is banking on the snowmaking improvements to challenge both Arapahoe Basin and Loveland for the earliest start and the longest...
The 2018-2019 season was a whirlwind -- dare we say “Epic” -- tour for Team Pugski. Tricia and I were all over the western United States at almost 25 resorts, including more than a half-dozen Epic resorts. Even though these areas are under the Vail umbrella in one way or another, each has its...
Long time lurker...finally getting on board.
I have a conference in Denver next week, so naturally I decided to head out early to get some spring skiing in this weekend (I know...I'm a week late for the Pugski extravaganza.....). I've done plenty of skiing out west but I have never...
We, and by that I mean @SBrown has, commandeered a beach spot for Sunday, May 5th in conjunction with the 13th Annual May at A-Basin.
We will be taking donations to cover the cost as the price seems to rise a little every year.
Beach Spot 10; anyone who is attending, please consider donating...
In the past we've celebrated Mother's day at A-Basin, which started 13 years ago. Wow, has it really been that many years?
Last year we realized how difficult it is to rely on good snow and good attendance when Mother's Day was later in the month
With Mother's day on May 12th we have switched it...
Going to CO with a buddy (intermediate snowboarder) late March, will be arriving around 9am at DIA on a Saturday, and leaving late the following Thursday. We will be staying in Silverthorne and will have an AWD rental car.
Since we both have Epic pass and he's never been to Colorado, I was...
@amlemus is looking for instruction in Colorado:
I moved this discussion to its own thread so it can gain some traction. Any recommendations for good private instructors in one of those areas? Thanks!
With Killington, Arapahoe Basin, Loveland, and a few others open for the season, along with the few resorts with soft openings like Mt Rose, the temperatures are dropping and we're seeing more ski hills firing up the guns.
This is stoke worthy...
I'll kick it off with Alpine Meadows
Since A-Basin has started making snow (https://theknow.denverpost.com/2018/09/21/arapahoe-basin-starting-snowmaking/196138/), I figured it was time for the annual threads.... So ladies, and gentleman....
Who's going to be the first to open?
My guess is Loveland on October 12th.
