A Basin is basic, skiing - no frills, but you bang for your buck at A basin. Book on-line at least a day prior and your $85 dollar ticket could be as low as $55. When you drive 10 minutes down the road to any other ski resort, the ticket could be $120. If you need a day of less... More

Went here for the first time this last weekend. I classify myself as a very intermediate skier who can handle greens with ease and can manage most blues I have come across. This mountain was entirely different though. The "easiest" blue seemed to be quite difficult compared to others I've encountered in the past, and I didn't feel comfortable on... More

Truly my favorite mountain in Colorado. Amazing snow , long runs, 4 star food mid mountain, and new kids center. This is still my go to every year for spring skiing. The only area they need improvement is in the attitude of their staff. The staff in the kids center act as if their doing me a favor and are... More

We got lift tickets for all the kids and they had access to all the lifts. For my wife and I we bought lift tickets for the bunny slopes which were... More

We have been skiing and boarding in the area. We decided to try A basin. The views are beautiful and the resort has a laid back feel that is nice. But the lines were quite long even though there wasn't a lot of people because there aren't very main lifts. the lifts are slow. The runs are short overall. The... More

Spent two days skiing with my kids and grands. The slopes are well groomed and the personnel are very helpful. The make the best bloody Mary's and on the weekends even have an oyster bar. The food and drinks are yummy. They have a great selection of beer on draft! We had a super awesome time here.

One of my favorite places to ski. It's much cheaper than anywhere else (lift ticket, food, beer, etc). It's typically more of a locals resort so you're not dealing with out of control skiers and other crazy stuff that you might find at larger resorts. The terrain is challenging and I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for a beginner since there... More

This was the one of the most enjoyable experiences of my life. This was my families first time to ski EVER and we took private lessons. Our Instructor, Carol, was the best of the best. She worked with us one on one for about 3.5 hours until she guided the whole group down the greens for our first time. The... More
