Media Passes & Tickets

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

Commercial Photography + Videography 

NOT allowed without a U.S. Forest Service permit, prior written permission from Arapahoe Basin, and payment of a site fee. Please allow a week or more to complete the process. 

"Commercial" is anything not strictly for news media. If you are shooting promotional material for a company / service / product / brand, you MUST have permission from BOTH the USFS and A-Basin. 

Commercial 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.

Do not shoot your product launch video for Instagram Stories here; we will ask you to take it down. 

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 for A-Basin images and B-roll. 

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
