From the Stacks to the Slopes

Snow sports are expensive and often out of reach for lower-income families. In an effort to break down the barriers to the outdoors, A-Basin is working in new and creative ways to address diversity, equity, and inclusion. By partnering with local organizations, the ski area can reach those who may not have another opportunity to get out on the slopes and spread the joy of skiing and riding.

This winter, we’re partnering up with the Denver Public Library to give library cardholders a chance to win an all-expenses-paid ski trip to the slopes at A-Basin. In this first-of-its-kind partnership, one winner will be selected at random each month in January, February, and March. Each of the three winners will receive a trip to Arapahoe Basin, including transportation, lift tickets, rentals, and lunch — a hassle-free experience on the mountain for themselves and three guests.

Denver Public Library cardholders can visit the Museum Pass page at denverlibrary.org to enter. The winner may choose to visit on three select dates throughout the peak winter season (Jan. 21, Feb. 17, or Mar. 18, 2024). Terms and conditions apply; please visit denverlibrary.org for more details and entry.

We’re working to extend our network and create pathways for individuals who may not traditionally have access to our outdoor haven and invite a broader community to celebrate the natural beauty that surrounds us. The White River National Forest can and should be enjoyed by everyone, so we aim to be a bridge to connect everyone who wants to be outside to the outdoors.
