Work Continues on New Arapahoe Basin Ski Area Downhill Mountain Bike Trail
Work resumed this month at Arapahoe Basin Ski Area to complete the remainder of Wheels Up, the ski area’s new downhill mountain biking trail.
Arapahoe Basin Ski Area Chief Operating Officer Al Henceroth said in a blog post last week that the ski area’s trail crew and a trail-building team from the International Mountain Bicycling Association resumed work on the trail this month.
The ski area wasn’t able to continue work on the trail during the COVID-19 pandemic last summer. In 2019, A-Basin completed the portion of the trail that starts about halfway down the High Noon ski run on the ski area’s front-side, lower-mountain ski terrain.
