It’s a funny pick since Arapahoe Basin is far from a hidden gem. Last season, A-Basin was on the EPIC Pass and this season it is included on the Ikon Pass.

OK, it’s not really a secret. You can basically spit on Denver from the top of Arapahoe Basin’s East Wall, and the mountain is typically one of the country’s first resorts to open, thanks to a lofty base elevation of 10,780 feet, which makes for good early-season snowmaking.
