Blue skies, sunshine, smiles and SKIING! That was the scene this past Sunday at Arapahoe Basin; the first ski resort to open in Summit County. The Black Mountain Express chair fired up at 8:30 am carrying eager skiers and riders up to the top of the intermediate level High Noon Run. A-Basin was the second ski area to open in the state right behind Wolf Creek in southwest Colorado.

Founded in 1946, Arapahoe Basin is celebrating their 75th birthday this year. Hard to imagine that they opened so very long ago with just one tow rope and lift tickets priced at $1.25. These days they open 9 lifts and 145 runs in the heart of the winter.
