    Oct 23 | 199 Views | No Comments

      It’s a great time to be a Colorado skier. Whether you buy a full season pass at your home mountain (often with reciprocal free days at nearby resorts) or pick up 4 packs and discount cards from a variety of mountains, it’s pretty easy to argue that skiing in Colorado is more affordable than...

  • Arapahoe Basin Patrol Dog Rio’s Day at the Office

    on October 13 | in Uncategorized | by | with Comments Off

    If the recent snowmaking and winter weather haven’t gotten you stoked for the season, maybe this video will help get you there; last spring, during a very snowy May, Arapahoe Basin recorded a “day in the office” of its patrol dog, Rio.

    Rio is more than your typical 3-year-old Golden Retriever. She is also a certified avalanche search and rescue dog, a member of the Colorado Rapid Avalanche Deployment Team, and an employee of Arapahoe Basin since 2012. Her patrol handler, assistant patrol director Matt Norfleet, and her owners, Rob and Debbie Ware, have spent hours working with Rio to hone her obedience and elevate her skills as a rescue dog. Rio has become an example to others in the Avalanche Dog Training Program here at the Basin, and is one of our best helpers when educating our guests about snow safety and enjoying their day on the mountain.

    by Rachel Walker Sure, the local gym’s got ski fitness classes on the calendar, and chances are they’ve got better weights, mats, and music than you do in your living room.

There are plenty of exercises you can do anywhere that will start priming your body for your not-so-distant slope time. Here are a few good ones to begin with: Continue Reading

    (Snow) School’s In Session

    By Rachel Walker

    Before I had kids, this time of year centered around one question: which ski pass are you getting? These days, with two young boys (ages 4.5 and 2.5) the question is modified: which ski school program are you signing up for?

    It’s something all of my friends are asking, us “Front Rangers” with powder addictions and fledgling rippers. Some of us have ski houses in the high country (not me, sadly), others are intrepid day-trippers, and still others prefer to stay close to home. Fortunately, nearly all of the resorts in Colorado have multi-day ski school programs that offer consistency and financial discounts. Here’s a round-up: Continue Reading
