Arapahoe Sports is your one-stop retail location for all things related to Arapahoe Basin Shopping. It’s the only game in town (on the mountain, of course) but it’s a fantastic one, having doubled in size through a $1 million renovation in 2016. Open seven days a week, Arapahoe Sports is located at the north end of the A-Frame base lodge. The retailer makes everything easy for Arapahoe Basin shopping with goggles, gloves (and liners), socks, helmets, headphones, base layers, outerwear, hoodies, face masks, beanies and more. It’s easy to forget something when you're racing out the door to make first chair and Arapahoe Sports has you covered, literally, because they even rent clothing. This benefit is fantastic if you’re missing an item you’d just as soon not pay for as a new addition to your current active wear. But if you are in shopping mode, familiar brands in stock include Patagonia, Oakley, Marmot, Burton, Dakine and Giro, among others. At the end of the day, you’ll likely want to remember your trip to A-Basin with a special souvenir, and the staff at Arapahoe Sports will help you pick out something special.
Beyond Arapahoe Basin Shopping
For an even wider selection of goods and certainly for the most practical items like groceries to stock your nearby hotel room or vacation rental, there are plenty of places to visit beyond Arapahoe Basin shops. Keystone is the next closest town with gas stations, convenience and liquor stores, sports gear rental and active wear, among other retailers. Even if you don’t need much, it’s truly lovely to wander around Keystone shops at The Lakeside Village where the five-acre body of water has fish and standup paddleboarders in the summer and ice skaters in winter. For a short break or a day filled with shopping, The Outlets at Silverthorne can fill up your schedule as can a day spent on Main Street in either Frisco or in historic Breckenridge.
