I was prepping an article but BraveSkiMom.com already wrote it and it’s good!  There is also a great piece from WestElkProject.com on a Freeskiing comp recently held there- Click this link to read it. I have spent plenty of time tooling around this mountain and in my opinion it is down right fun. Here is her review: When I think of Sunlight Mountain Resort, two memories immediately come to mind.

Arapahoe Basin Opens the 2012-13 Season for Colorado Skiers and Riders

Arapahoe Basin has opened for the 2012 -13 Season today! The crowd was thick but overjoyed with the prospect of a new ski and ride season in front of them. KSMT provided the music and folks were rocking to the beat. You saw a smile on everyone’s face as they loaded the lift and there was not a single complaint about having to wait in line.          Alan Henceroth, COO and Vice President of Arapahoe Basin, was excited to see the turn out and be the first ski area to open in Colorado. Media was everywhere, ready to report the excitement to all of you! I had a blast photographing the crowd (Click here for all of our pictures on Facebook). There is nothing like a crowd of happy people. Even the local Yeti was happy and generously handing out K2 Caps. In case you didn’t know this Yeti is a Snowboarding fan, fur on the knuckles is helpful…             Colorado Ski Country has...
