Coming off of a rowdy Fourth of July celebration, Arapahoe Basin just announced it will open again this weekend for a summer-time park sesh. After seeing how popular the park was on America’s Birthday and with a healthy amount of snow still left on the upper slopes, the Colorado Front Range ski area decided to reap the benefits of this winter’s historical snowfall for another weekend.
Featuring various rails and boxes, the park will be open from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Skiers can ride the Black Mountain Express lift to the top of the High Noon run and then it’s a short walk to the park. There is no longer enough snow to ski to the base, so skiers are required to download on the same lift, which will run until 3 p.m.
Season passes, both A-Basin and Epic Passes, will not be accepted to ride in the park. A $25 day pass can be purchased in the guest services office in Mountain Goat Plaza.
