Arapahoe Basin Reporting 6" New Snow Overnight!

By

Our friends over at Arapahoe Basin Ski Area are reporting that 6″ of fresh, glorious, beautiful, wonderful, snow fell overnight.

The mountain is reporting 108 trails OPEN with primary conditions listed as POWDER.

Sounds pretty nice for skiing at the end of March, huh?

Time to call in sick. Get a baby sitter. Drop your dog off at your mom’s house. Take a mental health day. Avoid all the responsibilities of “real life”. Pretend like you forgot you had a meeting.

Do whatever you have to do to go skiing/riding.

Get after it while the gettin’ is good!
