Arapahoe Basin and Other Colorado Ski Resorts Kick Off 2013-14 Season (WITH VIDEO)

 

Video by Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA)

Arapahoe Basin opened its chair lift to skiers and snowboarders, and will offer pass deals and new improvements at Colorado resorts. Skiers and riders got the opportunity to access the Black Mountain Express lift and enjoyed skiing on intermediate run High Noon.

The race to host Opening Day is one of the highlights of the ski season, a title held by Colorado’s Arapahoe Basin or Loveland. Both resorts are located atop the Continental Divide. This also allows them to stay open long into the spring.
