Facilities & Services

Wagner Custome Skis
The Arapahoe Basin facilities and services are mainly at the base in and around the A-Frame lodge.

Eating On Mountain

The base area has a classic old school ski hill eatery, The Legends Cafe, serving basic but good tasty morsels for breakfast and lunch.

Halfway up the hill at the top of the Exhibition Lift, The Black Mountain Lodge provides food and drink of varying quality and price. That is of course if the staff can pull themselves away from conversations with their mates!! BYO hot chocolate in a thermos – it’ll be quicker and easier.

Brown baggers are well catered for. This is one of the few ski hills in the world that actually supports (even encourages) skiers to bring their own lunch. Microwave ovens and other facilities are provided in the dining area for use by said brown baggers.

The Snow Plume Refuge hut at the top of the Norway Lift offers welcome respite from the biting wind. A number of vending machines provide the sustenance.

Facilities for Children

No child minding facilities exist; you’ll have to leave the wee ones at Keystone!

Ski School

A Basin has a small ski school and as such reservations are essential. If you fail to reserve, you may miss out.

Ski Rental and Snowboard Hire

One ski rental shop exists in the base area.
