The wait is over! Arapahoe Basin will open on Sunday, October 13 at 8:30 am for the season. Four days earlier than 2012, this year's opening was sparked by early-season snow, low temperatures, and blasting snow guns. A-Basin will run the Black Mountain Express lift and there will be ski rentals and dining options available. Full day adult lift tickets through December 20 cost $67.00. No word yet on when neighboring resort Loveland Ski Area might fire up their lifts. Although Crystal Mountain and Timberline Ski Area have both had opening day glory this season, Arapahoe Basin is the first resort in the country to open their doors, turn on the lifts, and stay open for the season.
