Aprahoe Basin open for two extra weekends

Posted By: The Ski Channel on June 20, 2011 9:49 am

Good news, Colorado skiers and snowboarders! Aprahoe Basin has received an unprecedented amount of snow—half an inch in the past three days alone, with a mid-mountain base of 50 inches—and as a result will be open for two extra weekends. The last time this happened was 1997, so seize the day and head out there! In addition, Aprahoe’s Lake Reveal, a  pond that grows daily as the snow melts, is perfect for pond-skimming.


The Black Mountain Express and Lenawee Mountain Lift will be open on June 24-26 and July 1-4, running from 8:30am-2:30pm. Expect a full-fledged Fourth of July celebration, complete with fireworks. Summer season lift tickets are $39 for adults, $29 for youth (ages 15-19), and $19 for kids 6-14.
