Arapahoe Basin Ski Area Snowboarding

West of Denver near Loveland, the Arapahoe Basin Ski Area, or just A-Basin to most locals, has 109 runs spread over 960 acres that are served by 6 lifts with a maximum vertical descent of 2,270 feet. While most consider A-Basin to be pretty basic, but the vistas along the Continental Divide are stunning. For expert snowboarding, check out the East and West walls and the Rock Garden off the Pallavicini Lift.

The new lift out of Montezuma Bowl allows for 4 new backcountry access points: Thurmans Bowl, The Beavers, The Rock Pile, and Montezuma Road (near the base of the new lift).
