Location + Summer Hours

Arapahoe Basin is located on Highway 6 / Loveland Pass Road, just 68 miles west of downtown Denver, 5 miles east of Keystone and 20 miles northeast of Breckenridge. Wherever you are coming from, it's a scenic drive!

If you are coming from the east, exit Loveland Pass and enjoy the winding 8-mile drive up and over the 11,990-foot pass on your way to see us. We recommend stopping at the top for breathtaking scenery, including an aerial, panoramic view of A-Basin.​

EV CHARGING STATIONS

We have 5, dual-port electric vehicle charging stations installed at the front of our Early Riser Parking lot (i.e. prime parking!). 

  • Space for 10 electric vehicles adjacent the rental shop building.
  • Available when our parking lot is open, 7 AM – 6 PM.
  • Chargepoint Level II stations deliver about 25-30 driving miles per hour of charging. This equals about 3 hours to top off after a trip from Denver.
  • Stations are accessible via the Chargepoint network and app.
  • Teslas welcome but need to supply their own adapter to use the Chargepoint stations.

Please only park in these spaces while you are actively charging. While we are not enforcing a time limit or charging fees for people who stay too long, we do ask that you please help us out and be mindful of others who may need to charge.
