      Have a beer at the 6th Alley Bar at the base after the lifts close!

      When the first lifts were added in Arapahoe Basin in 1946, great importance was placed upon snow-safety. The base terminal at A-Basin is located at an elevation of 11,000 ft approx. nine miles from the town of Keystone, so the selection of bars close to the lifts is very limited. For lunch or just a short break, we recommend the recently-constructed Black Mountain Lodge at the upper terminal of the Exhibition lift. When the weather’s good, you can enjoy the view of the surrounding peaks of Lenawee Mountain 13,200 ft and Arapahoe Basin 13,050 ft from the terrace while you recharge. For an even more beautiful panorama, stop in at the highest-elevated restaurant in Arapahoe Basin, the Snow Plume Refuge. When the weather’s nice, you can see all the way to Lake Dillon from this little hut at the top terminal of the Norway lift. And if you don’t want to head back to the hotel right away after the lifts close, you can stop in for a beer at the 6th Alley Bar. You won’t find too much of an après-ski atmosphere here, but it doesn’t really seem to matter. Arapahoe Basin stands for an authentic unadulterated skiing experience. Apres-ski is just a side note.
