    I get 3 exchanges with my Monarch pass. Hit the Basin early Feb., 3 days after a storm. The runs were all groomed or skied out but we skied untracked in the trees all day. Works for me. Btw I dont ski resorts on weekends except on powder days.

    I was like that till this season. Saturday mornings definitely a little busy, but I've been showing up later in the day, going out the gate right before the lift shuts down, and getting a decent day in while still avoiding the masses everywhere but the first few lift rides. Sundays are even betterer.

    ETA: Just noticed that it would only be $559 to ski the rest of this season and all of next with the double down pass. That's really not too bad of a deal. Lots of season left still

    A-Basin just dropped their renewal to $349 ($70 discount). Includes Icon Passholders.

    Also added this "A-Basin Pass Promise. If A-Basin does not open at all for the 2020-21 season, your pass will automatically be transferred to the 2021-22 season and will be valid. You will NOT need to pay the difference if the price increases."

    A-Basin is selling the Pali chairs by lottery. You need to pay $50 to enter the lottery for a chance to buy a chair for $2500. I think i'll pass on this one. Double chairs don't even make a good swing. I love my Loveland Chair 2 swing, and those chairs were only $400. I'm sure they will have no problem selling the chairs even at that price though.

    $2500 is insane. I prefer my free one.

    $50 doesn't even count toward the $2500.... oh yea and $160+ in tax.

    That chair has meaning beyond ski memories, first date with my wife. She is pissed because she wanted one, but not at that price.

    I guess Pali chairs will only adorn the (third) homes of the 1%. Or they have misread the market and won't even sell 100 tickets. I sincerely doubt they are going to raise the $250K in chair sales they imagine, not even if the economy wasn't in shambles.

    Yeah, the people who can afford that could care less.

    Maybe a restaraunt/bar and hotel/Inn would want one, but half of those people are out of business.

    $2500, Jesus Christ... About 20 years ago I bought two Alta Supreme double chairs for $250 each and that included the center pole being removed and then reattached with legs so it could be set on the ground. Also fresh powder coat and "Alta Supreme Chair" stenciled on the back rest. Should have bought more...

    I can find you chair thatís similar and tell you it was from Pali. Iíll even give you deal, $1000. For $1500 Iíll convince you itís the one you and your wife had a date on.

    Dude, there are beanie babies worth $50K!

    I'm also hoping to get a gondola cabin for the yard one of these days. Guessing they'll be on the market as ski areas switch back to chairs because of the 'Rona. Can't tell you how much debauchery went down in those Keystone gondi cabins BITD, wouldn't call it a "First date" exactly...

    Already at $5,200. Crazy. I don't think they will have any problem selling the rest at $2,500.

    not to mention, isn't this one specifically 100% for charity, not "some non-disclosed portion will go to charity"?

    I really think Abasin missed the mark on this but it is what it is. We shall see what they all end up going for but given the low volume of bids on the charity auction I really can't see 100+ people paying 2550+Tax for a non-deduction purchase.

    Holy shit.


    ARAPAHOE BASIN WILL REOPEN FOR THE 2019-20 SEASON WITH LIMITED SKIING AND RIDING OPERATIONS ON WEDNESDAY, MAY 27.†

    WHAT TO EXPECT

    NO RESERVATION, NO ACCESS.†A limited number of people will be admitted daily. Do not come if you do not have a pre-booked reservation.

    There are only two ways to ski / ride A-Basin during this time: pre-book a reservation with a valid pass or purchase a day ticket in advance.

    TAILGATING IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED. Arapahoe Basin staff will actively police the parking lots to ensure compliance with all state, county and company mandates. There are no exceptions.

    BRING A FACE COVERING. You must wear it when you cannot maintain 6 feet of physical distancing outdoors and in designated areas.

    You will be asked to leave if you do not follow all guidelines laid out by Arapahoe Basin, which were developed in conjunction with state and county health authorities.†

    Please stay home if you are sick or are considered high risk.

    This is not an experience suitable for beginners. To reduce injury risk, we recommend only experienced skiers/riders. Expect spring conditions.
