Forest Service and Arapahoe Basin formally begin Beavers expansion review process →

From Bob Berwyn at the Summit County Citizens Voice:

Arapahoe Basin and the U.S. Forest Service are moving ahead with the first formal step in the review process for a significant expansion at Summit County’s oldest ski area.

The proposal includes the following expansions and improvements:

  • Adding a lift to the Beavers area which is (adding 430 acres)
  • Expanding its reservoir for snowmaking water
  • Adding a surface lift for easier access to the Montezuma Bowl
  • Replacing the Molly Hogan lift and removing the Norway chair (potentially allowing for zip lines)

Keep in mind, this is an early phase in the review process but shows what the resort could look like in a few seasons.
