All of A-Basin Ski Area Shut Down Due to Avalanche Possibility
Skiers wanted snow and that is exactly what we got. Snow and a lot of it. So much snow in fact, Arapahoe Basin Ski area has been shut down to the chances of an avalanche on Loveland Pass.
Tuesday afternoon, around 1 p.m. A-Basin sent home skiers and employees for safety reasons. Arapahoe Basin has gotten just shy of 30 inches of snow in the past three days alone.
Due to avalanche concerns on Loveland Pass, we are CLOSING ALL SKIER SERVICES STARTING AT 1:00 p.m. 1/10/17. Stay tuned for updates.

Here is to hoping that the snow subsides a bit and everyone is able to get home safely and be able to return to hit the slopes soon!
