Although it’s among the smaller ski areas in Colorado, Arapahoe Basin activities and programs offer a large slate of things to do. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, a Legendary Ladies alpine skiing and snowboarding group matches six female skiers with a women’s coach to explore the mountain and to gain new skills. While the ski area is best recognized for its advanced and expert terrain, Arapahoe Basin activities and programs include two just for the younger set. Kids Club Arapahoe offers lessons all season long, while Basin Breakin’ Camps take place during the February school break. A-Basin’s wise instructors know it’s always better to let someone else handle part of each season’s skill development. For uphill skiers, people who use skins (think: mohair socks) to travel uphill and then remove them to ski down, A-Basin offers a four-part Rise and Shine Rando race series (randonnée) that begins at the base area (10,780 feet) and ends near the summit above 12,400 feet. As part of the ski area’s commitment to all-around fun, a Shakin’ at the Basin Spring Concert Series presents live music at the Base Area Plaza. These musical events are free and family-friendly.
Arapahoe Basin Activities: Dining Series
Arapahoe Basin activities include a series of Moonlight Dinners from December to April at the Black Mountain Lodge. Booked online, these frequently sold-out events present a themed menu (Latin, Italian, Polynesian and more). Each evening includes live music along with its multi-course progressive dishes. Beer Maker’s Dinners take place monthly at the 6th Alley Bar & Grill. A-Basin chefs pair food and suds for a low-key evening of fun. Schedules can include a prime rib night, a fish fry and a Mexican Fiesta. Visit this page often along with Summit This Week to learn more about on-mountain dining events at A-Basin.
