Close Yet Remote

Located only 75 miles west of the Denver International Airport, the topography ranges from 10,700' in the base area to over 13,000' on the summit of Lenawee Mountain. Much of the terrain is in a high alpine bowl above timberline with dramatic, rugged backdrops along the Continental divide. Almost always averaging over 350 inches of snow per year, Arapahoe Basin is the last ski area in Colorado to close by at least a month each season (early June.) The late snowfall provides opportunities for snow shots into the summer.
