Media Passes & Tickets
If you are actively working on a piece with a deadline, feel free to reach out to our PR person. Introduce yourself, tell us about the publication, your story angle, and why you are specifically interested in skiing or riding at A-Basin. Please help us help you.
We can usually tell if you're just trying to get a free ski trip out of us or if you haven't done your homework and know nothing about us.
If you have a great idea, a legitimate publication, and a relevant audience lined up, we are more than happy to help you find a unique angle that will set your story apart, answer a million questions, hook you up with a ticket, set up a tour guide, buy you a bloody Mary, whatever.
Commercial Photography + Videography
"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.
We don't care if you're TikTok famous. The rules still apply.
- Please email Whitney Henceroth for more information or to request permission.
A-Basin Photos + Video / B-Roll / Drone Footage
We have a full-time professional photographer / videographer on staff who is awesome. We are happy to provide his high-rez, high-quality content to news media.
Our photographer is an FAA-certified drone pilot and has permission per our operating permit to fly a drone at the ski area. The use of drones, even for news media purposes, is NOT permitted without prior permission from A-Basin and the US Forest Service.
Depending on the circumstance, we may be able to work with you and shoot the footage you need. We have provided drone video to Good Morning America, CBS Sports for an NFL game, and more.
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, B-Roll.
Webcam Images and Usage
Mountain webcams can be found, here. We're working on getting the summit cam restored. We love it as much as you do but sometimes equipment breaks when it's outside in the elements at 12,456 feet.
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 out our watermark (especially on social media)
Link back to the ski area if you are embedding the cam image in your website
