When we visited there was not much snow but it was such an experience to go to the top of the mountain and look out. You really feel like you are up in the mountains. We'll definitely come back when there are more runs open, but great start

This was our first time skiing in Colorado. We choose A-basin and even with not much snow and just one lift open we had great time. We will for sure come back and would love to try all the lifts and trails.

A fun day with just one run open but another run was opened for a ski team which was training at the only mountain open in Colorado.

Decent conditions but limited terrain due to early season and warm temp. I was lucky enough to visit the day after the first storm of the season. Great vibe. Cool place. Check it out even if just once. Very local.

We had a great experience here, since Keystone and Breck did not open in time we choose to go here. A great quick chair located in the middle of the mountain made the day great. Lift operations, scanners, and park crew were great.

I went to Breckenridge the first week of November which was a week before the season opened. Who knew until after we booked the hotel and plane tickets. Plus Colorado was unseasonably warm for that time. Arapahoe Ski basin was the only place I could go snowboarding. They only had one lift and run available (Blue)...No beginners allowed. It was...

The area has some great slopes. I stayed in Keystone but the shuttle bus made it easy to visit. I'm a snowboarder.

Stopped here on our way to Loveland Pass. Beautiful view and almost everyone was stopping. Located on U.S. Highway 6.

Great place to ski or snowboard. Great place for children's lessons - surprisingly. Our only complaint is the run time to lift time ratio. You spend way more time on the lift and the runs are short. Passes are affordable, discounted tickets available.

This is one of my favorite places in Colorado to hike when the summer is winding down and fall is just beginning to show its colors. The views from the trails at this ski area of the peaks near and far are some of the most stunning in all of Colorado. Take your camera and stay until sunset. The light... More
