      Arapahoe Basin is a must-ski for experienced skiers visiting Colorado.

      Ski areas in the US are known to have many more mogul and deep snow runs than groomed ones, and Arapahoe Basin is no exception. In the US, intermediate runs are marked blue (in Europe usually red). Most blue runs in A-Basin are located off of the Lenawee Mountain lift. Of these, Dragon, West-Gully and Dercum’s Gulch were extremely well-groomed despite the fresh snow on the day of our evaluation. The High Noon and Ramrod trails off of the Exhibition lift also offer great carving fun. The trails off of the Pallavicini lift are a different story. These consist almost exclusively of mogul runs and extremely difficult deep snow runs. Only the Slalom Slope and Grizzly Road runs had been groomed on the day of the tests. In the Montezuma Bowl there were also very few groomed runs. So if you like switching off between carving runs and challenging mogul slopes or deep snow runs, you’ll love Arapahoe Basin. But if you’d rather spare your quad muscles and stick to the well-groomed carving runs, you won’t find very many options.
