How to escape the crowds in Colorado this summer



It's simple. Go to where the people are not (gathering in large numbers).

You've heard the stories about how this summer in the Colorado mountains is supposed to be just as busy as the last. Experiences defined by reservations, crowds, lines. It can be hard to figure out what to do on a beautiful Saturday when it's hot on the Front Range or Western Slope but you didn't plan anything ahead of time.

No plans? Need to get away? Love natural experiences? Don't like crowds? We got you. Come see us.

We do things a little differently at Arapahoe Basin, tailoring our experiences to the outdoor lover and adventure-seeker while keeping the crowds minimized and the environment as pristine, natural, and beautiful as possible.

When you choose to spend a day with us, you will first enjoy a beautiful drive over Loveland Pass and get to park--for free--within walking distance of our small but scenic base area where all activities are either located or begin.

We are also home to North America's highest-elevation via ferrata (advance reservation required). 

Keep it simple. Keep it beautiful. Enjoy the mountains.
