Colorado's A-Basin Wraps Up 2013-14 Season Sunday
Eight months after kicking off Colorado’s record-breaking 2013-14 ski and ride season, Arapahoe Basin will operate for one final weekend Friday, Saturday and Sunday (June 20-22) from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Arapahoe Basin was the first ski area to open in Colorado on October 13, 2013. Over the course of this season, A-Basin received more than 440 inches of snow, allowing it to extend the season past the initial June 1, 2014, closing date. February was the snowiest month for the ski area this season with more than 90 inches of recorded snowfall. On Sunday, A-Basin will have operated for 241 days, including the three “bonus” extension weekends. While not the longest season on record, this season stands as one of the busiest and most successful for A-Basin.
“From our October 13 opening to the 6th Alley Bar & Grill remodel, to those extraordinary mid-season powder days to the summer skiing – this has certainly been one of the most amazing ski seasons Arapahoe Basin has ever had,” said Alan Henceroth, A-Basin’s Chief Operating Officer.
The Basin doesn’t shut down just because the ski season is over! From July 5 to August 31, the 6th Alley Bar & Grill will be open for lunch Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Arapahoe Basin’s summer events season kicks off July 13 with Yoga on the Mountain at Black Mountain Lodge. Other events include the Summit Challenge Trail Run, a mid-mountain BBQ, and several dining events at Black Mountain Lodge.
