Lower Wrangler Snowmaking

Snowboarding News: Arapahoe Basin | Wednesday November 15, 2017

I would describe our snowmaking priority right now as trying to get as much green terrain open as we can by the Thanksgiving weekend. Last week we opened Sundance and Molly Hogan (trail and lift). Yesterday we opened the Pika Place conveyor lift. Currently our snowmakers are blowing snow on... Shared by: Arapahoe Basin Read Article...

First Skin

Snowboarding News: Arapahoe Basin | Monday November 13, 2017

This afternoon/evening Kay and I took our first skin of the season. It felt great to be out on the hill. The snow was good and the weather perfect. It reminded me to encourage people to be extra careful. The snowmakers and cat drivers are working out there. Stay as... Shared by: Arapahoe Basin Read Article...

Uphill Access Open With Restrictions

Snowboarding News: Arapahoe Basin | Saturday November 11, 2017

After the lifts close today, uphill access will be open. For now, it will be open during non-operating hours. Said another way, uphill access will be closed when the lifts are open to the public. As always, I encourage uphill users to use extra caution keeping an eye out for... Shared by: Arapahoe Basin Read Article...

Rental And Snowsports

Snowboarding News: Arapahoe Basin | Friday November 10, 2017

We just opened our newly re-organized Winter Sports Center. The project had a lot of objectives, but the biggest one was to make it easier for first time (or near first time) skiers and riders to get into the sport, have a good day and come back for more good...

Molly Hogan And Sundance

Snowboarding News: Arapahoe Basin | Thursday November 09, 2017

Molly Hogan opened today giving us three chairlifts and kicking the Snowsports School into a higher gear. Sundance will open Friday morning. We will keep making snow on Molly and Sundance for a while to buff those trails out before heading over to Lower Wrangler. Shared by: Arapahoe Basin Read Article...

Rope Tow Update

Snowboarding News: Arapahoe Basin | Wednesday November 08, 2017

We are calling the rope tow from the top of Lenawee Mountain Lift to Montezuma Bowl the "Lazy J." The brand of the lift is a "Telecorde." It functions a little bit differently than a standard rope tow. Your typical lift would have a bullwheel on each end. This lift... Shared by: Arapahoe Basin Read Article...

Ski Patrollers And Patrol Headquarters

Snowboarding News: Arapahoe Basin | Tuesday November 07, 2017

If you have spent any time in Black Mountain Lodge this season, you have noticed the Ski Patrollers hanging out in the Southwest corner of the building. Since they didn't have access to their space at Patrol Headquarters (PHQ) on the Summit, they have found a temporary home at mid... Shared by: Arapahoe Basin Read Article...

Burning Mostly Done

Snowboarding News: Arapahoe Basin | Sunday November 05, 2017

We have been burning a lot of slash piles the last few weeks. For this season we are mostly done with burning. We did this treatment on Loafer, Davis, the lift line, Steep Gullies Hike Back and the Emergency Egress Route. The stumps were flush cut and the slash was...

Avalanche Work

Snowboarding News: Arapahoe Basin | Saturday November 04, 2017

It was nice to see the good snowfall this morning. And we should see more through Tuesday.Snow Safety Team members spent some time on Pali this week. Explosives work led to substantial settling and cracking and a few very small slides. Travel in these areas is still very slow, but... Shared by: Arapahoe Basin Read Article...

Snowmaking Sequence

Snowboarding News: Arapahoe Basin | Friday November 03, 2017

What is next for snowmaking? Right now we are really focusing on two areas. The first is to buff out Lenawee Face and Dercum's Gulch, especially the very top. While this has been a good Upper Mountain opening, getting the snow a little wider and little deeper is always helpful. The... Shared by: Arapahoe Basin Read Article...

Skiing Off The Top

Snowboarding News: Arapahoe Basin | Thursday November 02, 2017

Yesterday we opened Lenawee Mountain Chairlift with some fine skiing on Lenawee Face and Dercum's Gulch. The snowmakers and cat drivers pulled another beautiful rabbit out of their hat. For me, there are several key bench marks to the ski season. Being open off the top is one of them.... Shared by: Arapahoe Basin Read Article...

The Reservoir And The Wind

Snowboarding News: Arapahoe Basin | Sunday October 29, 2017

Snowmaking had been going really well up high. We did, however, bump into a couple of challenges. The ridgetops got a little too windy. The snowmaking reservoir got a little too low. The humidity got a little too high. So, after some phenomenal snowmaking, we had to slow things down... Shared by: Arapahoe Basin Read Article...

Your Friendly Bar Staff

Walking Tour

Snowboarding News: Arapahoe Basin | Friday October 27, 2017

I did a walking tour on the Upper Mountain this morning. I should have done a ski tour. The snowmakers had ANOTHER very good night. We have continuous snow coverage from the top of Lenawee to bottom of Lenawee. A handful of the spots still need more snow, but we... Shared by: Arapahoe Basin Read Article...

Chips To Electricity

Snowboarding News: Arapahoe Basin | Sunday October 22, 2017

All those chips are finally gone from the Early Riser lot. Parking is back to normal. Those chips, from the trees removed in The Beavers, will be consumed in the Gypsum Biomass Plant to generate electricity. Shared by: Arapahoe Basin Read Article...

Lenawee Snowmaking

Snowboarding News: Arapahoe Basin | Saturday October 21, 2017

It has been a good storm so far. With a few inches of natural snow and excellent temperatures for snowmaking, the crew is making great progress on Lenawee from the top all the way down to Lenawee Traverse. The wind has been a bit of a challenge, but not impossible.... Shared by: Arapahoe Basin Read Article...
