Since opening on October 17, 2014, Arapahoe Basin has been turning the lifts for 237 days this season. In total, A-Basin received 338 inches of snow, almost reaching the average of 350. And even though this local's favorite only boasts 8 lifts in total, its high-altitude terrain (the base is at 10,780 feet) allows it to offer some of the best long-season skiing anywhere. Yesterday marked the end of the 2014-2015 ski season in Colorado, so take a look at how approximately 2,500 people spent their day saying goodbye to snow. Bonus: yes, there was a pond skim.
