Scenic Chairlift Rides

Fly through the air to 11,500 feet on the Black Mountain Express.

Closed for the season. See you in summer 2022!

Take a chairlift ride to mid-mountain at Arapahoe Basin, where you can discover unparalleled vistas of the Continental Divide, explore the upper mountain, or hike the Half Moon or Argentine-North Fork trails. Once you've completed your time at mid-mountain, take the lift down or hike back to the base and enjoy lunch at the 6th Alley Bar & Grill.
