A Basin

Marcus Lovett and Ramona Bruland ski Arapahoe Basin

Located in Summit County, Arapahoe Basin (A Basin) is the highest resort in North America; it starts at over 3000 metres (where most European resorts finish) and goes up to just under 4000 metres. If the view doesn't take your breath away the altitude will. If you are bit of an old schooler then A Basin is for you, it hasn't changed much in the last 20 years except for computerized ticketing and a lick of paint. No frills, just a good bit of mountain with 6 lifts and a season that can go for 9 months, and they don't even have a glacier. No on mountain accommodation, but there is plenty just down the road at Keystone which is on the same lift ticket.
