Arapahoe Basin opens Montezuma Bowl Tuesday
December 29, 2008 —
Just a quick note to let you know Arapahoe Basin's Montezuma Bowl opens for the first time this season on Tuesday, Dec. 30. Rope drop is scheduled for 11 a.m. and judging by the this ski patrol picture, its going to be a freshie-filled time.
Solid early season snowfall allowed Basin staff to groom and open the terrain two weeks earlier than expected. The Zuma lift will give skiers and riders access to 18 intermediate, advanced and expert runs, totaling 180 acres.
When fully open, Montezuma Bowl encompasses 400 acres on the resorts backside. The area opened for its inaugural season in January 2008, increasing A-Basin's terrain by 80 percent, and accounting for the nation's largest terrain expansion during the 2007-2008 season.
