Media Passes & Tickets

A-Basin does not offer media passes or media discounts. If you are actively working on a story with a publication deadline, feel free to reach out to us about a lift ticket. 

A-Basin Photos + Video / B-Roll

We are happy to provide content to news media. We will not provide content to commercial enterprises and are not able to respond to individuals requesting photos that were taken of them while they were at A-Basin.

  • Please email Katherine Fuller, Communications Manager, for A-Basin images and B-roll. 

Commercial photography and videography + drones

NOT allowed without a U.S. Forest Service permit AND prior written permission from Arapahoe Basin. 
No one may fly a drone at any time for any reason without prior permission, including guests and news media. 

"Commercial" is anything not strictly for news media. This includes any and all photos and videos related to a product and/or service, training videos, nonprofit productions and pretty much anything else not explicitly for news media use that will be posted to a website, YouTube, Instagram story, etc. Don't shoot your product launch video for Instagram Stories here; we will ask you to take it down. 

  • Please email Katherine Fuller for more information or to request permission. Plan on a week or more to obtain the required documents. Please note there is a site fee.

Webcam Images and Usage

Mountain webcams can be found, here. 

Media outlets are permitted to use A-Basin's webcam images and timelapse videos in print, broadcast and social media, and may also embed these cams on their websites. Please consider these guidelines in return:

  • Credit Arapahoe Basin Ski Area wherever applicable
  • Do not crop our watermark out of the Prism cam shots (especially on social media)
  • Link back to the ski area if you are embedding the cam image in your website
