Alan Henceroth, Arapahoe Basin’s Chief Operating Officer, runs his own blog which we are sure many of you read. Today, Alan dropped a bombshell on his blog saying that A-Basin will be ending their pass partnership with Vail Resorts. You can read the blog entry below.
Arapahoe Basin / Vail Resorts End Partnership
“We are very proud of how wonderful Arapahoe Basin has become from the unparalleled skiing and riding to the incredible scenery. With diverse ski runs including some of the most intense terrain in North America and a culinary operation that is regularly listed among the top ten in the country, the ski area has developed a very special community that feels like home. In order to continue to build on this spirit and the experience we have created, Arapahoe Basin and Vail Resorts will not be renewing their pass partnership for the 2019-20 season.
A-Basin has seen exceptional growth both in popularity and skier visitation after investing 40 million dollars over the last 15 years. While the mountain still has plenty of room for skiers and riders, the ski area is feeling a pinch on parking and facility space. Due to these constraints, Arapahoe Basin believes its staff can take better care of its guests by separating from Vail Resorts.”
