A-Basin Photos + Video / B-Roll

The best low resolution images from our previous season are available in our Press Kit. High resolution images and video are available upon request for use by media outlets, not for private or commercial enterprise. We 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 more information about A-Basin images and B-roll.

Commercial photography and videography are not allowed without a U.S. Forest Service permit AND prior written permission from Arapahoe Basin. "Commercial" is anything not strictly for news media. No one may fly a drone at any time for any reason without prior permission, including news media. 

That 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. Please email Whitney Henceroth, Events Manager, for more information and plan on a week or more to obtain the required documents. 

Webcam Images and Usage

Mountain webcams can be found, here. 

Arapahoe Basin has seven webcams available to the public and for use by media outlets. 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
