Beginners and Intermediates:
With only ten percent of A-Basin's terrain dedicated to the beginner one may think that the beginner is ignored but that would be untrue.
A-Basin has two magic carpet lifts for the tots and ultra beginners with very open beginner terrain.
Beginner "Green" run: Sundance
Intermediate "Blue" run: Lenawee Face
Wide open "Green" and "Blue" ski runs are accommodating to the beginner and intermediate skiers.
The advanced single and double black diamond slopes comprise sixty percent of the terrain at Arapahoe Basin.
Much of this terrain lies above the tree line at the higher elevations where temperature stays colder and the fluffy powder snow is preserved for a longer duration.
The entrance to The Gulch looks innocent but is well marked.
Advanced Black diamond run: The Gulch
The entrance to Pallavicini
Double black diamond run: Pallavicini
With sixty percent of the terrain designated "Advanced", it is no wonder there are plenty of moguls runs as well.
Looking down "Exhibition"
More of the run "Exhibition"
Mogul run: International
The most notable due to its prominence and huge stature is "East Wall".
