These additions will allow for the resort’s to open terrain earlier in the season. Additionally, Arapahoe Basin will be engaging in the next steps to implement the recently approved Master Development Plan: gathering data for the Environmental Impact Statement on terrain expansion and lift-served skiing into The Beavers.

The resort’s popular 6th Alley Bar at the base will also get a complete remodel – to the tune of $1 million – and will be renamed the 6th Alley Bar & Grill. It will expand further into the base lodge, known as the A-Frame, and will feature a horseshoe-shaped bar and expanded table seating. The remodel will fit guests more comfortably while they relax and enjoy the Bacon Bloody Marys that have become a staple at the resort. It will also feature a lunch menu with items unique to the venue, and a bar food menu of après favorites like nachos and spinach dip. The projected opening for the renovated 6th Alley is late 2013.

Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) resorts have all  invested heavily during the off-season to greet guests with fresh looks for the upcoming 2013-14 season. The infrastructural improvements will create elegant, adventurous, and exiting experiences for skiers and riders, regardless of their age or ability level. Significant snowmaking and grooming additions, new large scale drinking and dining facilities, and luxury resort lodging renovations have all been designed to maintain Colorado’s reputation as the top destination for a world class guest experience.

From Steamboat’s multi-million dollar on-mountain lodge to Silverton’s new overnight heli-trips, the investments are as diverse as the guests they will serve. And with the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics just around the corner, the upcoming season is guaranteed to be accompanied by a renewed sense of excitement for all who are connected to the sport!
