Arapahoe Basin puts the first skiers and riders onto the slopes for the 2022-23 season.

The 2022-23 Colorado Ski Country USA ski season is officially open! Jubilant skiers and snowboarders kicked off the season this morning as Arapahoe Basin’s Black Mountain Express chairlift sent the first chair through the celebratory opening banner.

Arapahoe Basin, along with several other Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) members, have been making snow for the last couple weeks while Mother Nature came through with a nice early winter assist in the form of cold temps and some great early-season snow. As the season gets going, Arapahoe Basin skiers and riders can enjoy the replacement high-speed 6-pack Lenawee Lift, along with new on-mountain dining options.

“We all look forward to opening day every season and we’re glad to see folks getting out on the slopes at Arapahoe Basin,” said CSCUSA President and CEO Melanie Mills. “Skiers and riders can look forward to a fantastic ski season complete with new lifts, incredible dining options, and behind-the-scenes improvements that add up to an amazing experience in Colorado Ski Country USA!”

 

What’s New in Colorado Ski Country USA

Ski areas across Colorado Ski Country USA have been busy over the summer and fall with exciting changes at all 21 CSCUSA member resorts. The news this season includes more than a gloveful of big anniversaries: Copper’s 50th, Eldora’s 60th, Steamboat’s 60th, Sunlight’s 55th, and Telluride’s 50th. Not to be outdone, Steamboat’s Howelsen Hill is a spry 107 years old this season, the oldest continuously operating ski area in North America. And CSCUSA itself celebrates 60 years of promoting and growing Colorado’s ski industry. Whether it’s your first season on the slopes or your 50th (or more!) CSCUSA’s member resorts have #AMountainForEveryone.
