Summer Scenic Lift Rides

Ride the black mountain express lift

Take a ride to mid-mountain for more activities!

Take the Black Mountain Express lift to mid-mountain at Arapahoe Basin, where you can discover unparalleled vistas of the Continental Divide, explore the upper mountain, eat lunch at Black Mountain Lodge and hike around the Argentine-North Fork Trail. Once you've completed your time at mid-mountain, take the lift back down or hike back to the Mountain Goat Plaza base area.

Lift tickets are required for summer chair access for all guests. If you are a 2018-19 Arapahoe Basin Double Down, Full Season or Midweek pass holder, you get free lift rides all summer (foot passenger only; bike haul not available). A-Basin pass holders should stop by the Season Pass Office with I.D. to pick up their free summer lift tickets.

You can save money by purchasing your tickets online in advance! Read on to learn more.
