Arapaho or "A" Basin is a fifty-two year old legend, which offers the highest lift-served terrain on the North American continent. Half of the mountain is above timberline with open bowl skiing and snowboarding. The Basin's extreme elevations allows them to boast the latest ski season in Colorado, normally remaining open until mid-June and on occasion, even into July and August. One of its signature runs, Palivacinni, is one of Colorado's longest and steepest trails.
