The Arapahoe Basin (known universally as A-Basin, even on signs) is a resort area in the state of Colorado. It is a great destination for those on a budget not looking for tourist traps, but for more of a local scene. While not as large as the nearby resorts Keystone and Breckenridge, A-Basin still has diverse terrain and plenty of trails.

A-Basin expanded over 80% in the 2006-2007 season by finishing the back half of their mountain - now called the Montezuma bowl.

Cell-phone warning: Most cell phones have no service anywhere at the A-Basin. If you're planning to meet somebody, make sure to pick a meeting time and place beforehand.

Get in

From Denver:

Take I-70 to exit 205, then head along Colorado rt. 6 for 12 miles. === Parking:=== Parking at A-basin is more limited than most of the resorts. It's not common for lots to fill by 11 AM on Saturdays and Sundays.

Get around

Arapahoe Basin is not directly in a town. To get to A-basin, you'll have to drive or take the Summit Shuttle.







A-Basin is one of the few resorts that allows camping in some of their parking lots.
