Arapahoe Basin Ski Area (A-Basin) announced today that Montezuma Bowl, the ski area’s backside terrain, will open late-morning this Friday, January 10, 2014. Added during the 2007-2008 ski season, Montezuma Bowl boasts intermediate, advanced and expert terrain, as well as one of the best vistas in Summit County. The conditions this season have allowed for Montezuma Bowl to open over a month earlier than last season.
Open runs will include the intermediate trails Columbine, Larkspur and Independence; Columbine and Larkspur will be groomed top-to-bottom. This season’s tremendous snow coverage will also allow for some tree skiing terrain to open, such as Miner’s Glade. More trail openings will be announced on the Arapahoe Basin Facebook page as well as Al’s Blog as they occur.
