Winter Season Lift Hours

CLOSING DAY: June 2021 (estimated; conditions permitting).

Closing day has not been announced but we anticipate early June, conditions permitting. A-Basin has the longest season in Colorado and we stay open for skiing and riding as late as possible! 

Please note that June is not guaranteed and if we are open then, it will be with limited lifts and terrain and will not be a beginner experience.
