Some of my family love Arapohoe Basin, but I feel it is a little more advanced. The scenary is absolutley beautiful of course. So, If you feel like being challenged, head to the Arapaho Basin.

I love A Basin! It's probably one of my most favorite ski mountains in Colorado. It's pretty small and there is no resort to enjoy following your day on the slopes but as far as skiing goes, it's super fun, pretty challenging and always a good time.

This place is the absolute best ski resort in the state! The mountain is small but offers almost exclusively expert runs. Beginners better stop at keystone.

This is one of the smaller ski mountains in the Breckenridge, Copper mountain ski area. It is small but fits for a certain niche of people. It is mainly an all expert ski area. This is not the place to go with your family if you are different levels. Very challenging slopes. Wonderful conditions. This little resort is a must do for the experienced skier.

It s an awesome resort. as pepole have said before, it s a challenge and it s got a lot of a local feel and it s user friendly. the only drawback is their lifts. they re so damn old and slow. it seems like it takes forever to get up, and if you re a good skier/rider, it takes no time to get down if you re just doing some speed runs down the blues. by the way, their blues is what you d normally find as blacks at Breck or Keystone. The east wall is amazing if you get to it as soon as it opens. 46 degree steeps of pure fun and powder. especially if you hike the shoots and gap the lower traverse line on the way down. It s a fun mountain enjoyable even if you go on your own.

This area is incredibly underated. However, that being said, if you're a vain skier, more into the scene and seeing and being seen, you'd best take your self-loving-self somewhere else because this hill is too much for you. Olympians train here, European ski groups are in awe here, real people have a real good time here. It is a pure experience of what skiing should be, and used to be. If you'd like to spend your time with great friends, eating real food, drinkin' good beer, enjoying what I think is the top 3 scenery resorts in Colorado and having a REAL experience which also just happens to save you probably hundreds of dollars, then A-Basin is THE place to go on the front range. The mid-winter skiing is just as good as most other front range areas by the way, wind can be a problem at any of them.

Pros: inexpensive, GREAT parking, integrity

Cons: , not for the vain

The only problem with this hill is that its either very easy or very hard. The hard part is on the far right side (if your looking up the hill.) ENJOY!

It ranks #1 on my list and the list is very long.
Since 1970 I've skied all of the major resorts
in Colorado(and some not so major)as well.
A-Basin is the bomb for sure. Its no frills skiing
at its best. If you are looking for glitz and glitter
you should drive on over to Aspen or Vail.
At A-Basin there won't be a full length fur coat
in sight. This is skiing the way it used to be.
Before the mega corporate resorts. The other
good thing is its just over the hill to my #2 pick Loveland. A-Basin is as good as it gets!!!!!!
