Skiing down mountain at a ski resort.Arapahoe Basin Ski Area will officially kick off its Colorado ski and snowboard season starting Oct. 17, 2012. The Black Mountain Express lift will start at 9 a.m. to shuttle guests to the beginning of the intermediate High Noon trail at mid-mountain.

“We’re extremely excited to be the first ski area to open in Colorado,” said Alan Henceroth, Arapahoe Basin COO. “The staff and I can’t wait to see skiers and riders out on the hill having fun. That’s what we live for.”

New at A-Basin for the 2012-2013 season is the Pika Place Learning Area, scheduled to open November 2012. Pika Place is geared toward younger guests and first-time skiers and riders. The learning area features a new trail, a new conveyor lift and Ace’s Kids Park, a beginner-level terrain park with smaller versions of popular features found in A-Basin’s other two terrain parks.

This season, A-Basin launched an on-site Rossignol Experience Center designed to help skiers with their on-mountain experience and skiing technique. This rental program features an array of Rossignol skis with auto-turn rocker technology that provides greater control and confidence to all skiers. 

Current lift ticket window pricing will run through Dec. 21, 2012, with adult (19 years and over) full-day tickets priced at $64, youth (15-18 years) window tickets priced at $54 and child (6-14 years) window tickets priced at $32. Children under age 5 ski free. A-Basin also offers several season pass products, including the two-season Double Down Pass at $499 on sale through Dec. 31, 2012.
