Scenic Chairlift Rides

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

Our summer season is projected to be June 24 - September 5, 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. 

Summer 2022 Lift Tickets
  • FREE for 22-23 Arapahoe Basin full-season passholders (including midweek and Sunday passes)!

  • Pricing: $15 for ages 15 and up. $5 for 14 and under.

  • Lift hours: 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. (anticipated)


Lift tickets are required for summer chair access for ALL guests. Bikes and pets cannot ride the lift. Passholders who have their cards can go straight to the lift; 22-23 passholders must pick up a ticket at the window. Please note, Black Mountain Lodge will not be open Summer 2022.

Arapahoe Basin is also a wedding venue

Make moments you and your guests will never forget. In the summer, Arapahoe Basin is also a stunning, perfect  location for anyone who wants to get married in the mountains. You will ride the chairlift to the ceremony site at Black Mountain Lodge and enjoy the backdrop of our 13,000-foot mountains.
