A-Basin to kick off 2017-2018 ski season on Friday

ARAPAHOE BASIN, Colo. - Arapahoe Basin Ski Area plans to kick off the 2017-2018 season on Friday, October 13. 

The Black Mountain Express lift will start turning at 9 a.m., giving skiers and snowboarders access to the intermediate High Noon trail.

Arapahoe Basin is known for being one of the first ski areas to open in Colorado.

“Mother Nature has been kind to the Basin,” said Alan Henceroth, Arapahoe Basin Chief Operating Officer. “It’s exciting to kick off the ski season earlier than usual, and welcome winter back to Colorado.”

A-Basin mountain operations will continue to make snow as weather permits with the goal of opening additional terrain.
