Health & Safety Precautions

We welcome you to join us this summer at Arapahoe Basin, where physical distancing is natural. There are just a few, simple things we ask of you to help keep everyone safe. 

Follow on-site signage, stay apart from other groups, practice good hygiene, and have a face covering with you at all times. You will only be able to ride the lift with those in your party.
