Arapahoe Basin has announced that they will not be renewing their pass partnership with Vail Resorts for the 2019-2020 ski season. This pass is popular in Colorado, particularly the “Epic Local” variety, which includes days at Breckenridge, Keystone, Vail, Beaver Creek, Crested Butte, Arapahoe Basin, and several other resorts around the country. In the same announcement, Arapahoe Basin COO Alan Henchroth goes on to mention “how wonderful Arapahoe Basin has become.”

Arapahoe Basin opened new terrain this year that has the ski community excited. The Beavers is now lift accessible, bringing a ton of tree skiing to the resort. According to their press release, they’ve invested $40 million over the past 15 years into their growth.

The release also cites parking limitations as a problem point that they’ve faced with recent growth.

The press release ends with the following quote: “These actions are designed to preserve that special culture and vibe people expect when they choose to spend a day at The Basin. The future for Arapahoe Basin is very bright.”
