Arapahoe Basin has managed to stay true to its laid-back, down-home tradition while changing with the times. In the past four years, Arapahoe Basin - or the Basin, as locals call it - has made major on-mountain improvements.
In 2004, Snow Plume Refuge/Patrol Headquarters opened at the summit. In 2005, a new sports school building popped up at the base area. In 2007, Black Mountain Lodge at mid-mountain began to offer an upscale menu. But the biggest change took place in January of 2008, when the opening of Montezuma Bowl expanded the ski area by 80 percent, bringing the total skiable acres to 900.
Many people stop at the natural springs, located on Highway 6 between Keystone and A-Basin, to fill up their water bottles with fresh drinking water.
