Dave Camara/Arapahoe Basin Ski Area

Situated 68 miles west of Denver, Arapahoe is one of Colorado’s most historic ski resorts. With a timeline that goes all the way back to 1946, calling A-Basin “legendary,” as many powder hounds do, is no exaggeration at all. Arapahoe offers skiers and boarders one of the longest ski periods in all of the U.S. – the season that typically lasts from October until June or sometimes even July.
