ARAPAHOE BASIN, CO - (News Release) - Arapahoe Basin opened for skiing in December of 1946. This Saturday, A-Basin pays tribute to the history of the ski area with a 60th anniversary party.

Sixty years ago the founders of Arapahoe Basin cut down a few trees, created a lift with an army surplus generator and charged $1.25 for a lift ticket, inadvertently creating a legend. A full account of A-Basin's history can be found at
