Arapahoe Basin Lift Tickets

Welcome to Arapahoe Basin Ski Area in Summit County, Colorado! Below is a summary of our available lift tickets and links to purchase in our online store.

Lift tickets are not sold on-site. ALL lift tickets–including A-Basin + Ikon Pass holder friends & family–must be purchased online in advance. 

The only place to get an A-Basin lift ticket is from A-Basin. We do not sell discount lift tickets via other retail outlets. DO NOT purchase lift tickets from individuals, Craigslist, etc., as re-sale is illegal and those tickets will not work.

IMPORTANT IKON INFO: Friends and family tickets for A-Basin must be purchased through our online store, not via Ikon. You do not need a voucher number. You do need the i9 number on your Ikon Pass, and will be prompted to enter that partway through the checkout process. You can purchase an unlimited number of these tickets for others (or for yourself, if you run out of days) during the 2022-23 season. 


Important lift ticket fine print:

Lift tickets will sell out ahead of some weekends and holidays. We limit the sale of day tickets to preserve the mountain experience by preventing overcrowding. 

Tickets are date-specific, non-tranferable, and non-refundable. Prices vary depending on date and availability, and are subject to change at any time. 

How to pick up your lift ticket:

If your ticket purchase email (the receipt) has a QR code, you can pick up your lift tickets at one of the kiosks in the base area–skip the ticket window line! We suggest taking a screenshot of the QR code before you come, as our cellphone service is not the best. 

  • All other lift tickets (like military, 70+, etc.) require proof of eligibility and must be picked up at a ticket window.

  • Your lift ticket is RFID-enabled! Place it in a left-side pocket for easy scanning at the lifts. 

How to save money on ski lift tickets:

  • Buy in advance. The closer you are to your visit date, the more expensive the ticket.

  • Ski or ride Monday-Friday. Tickets are cheaper (and it’s almost never crowded). 

  • Buy a pass or multi-day pack product if you think you will ski or ride more than 2 days.
