Arapahoe Basin Ski Area, aka A-Basin, aka "The Legend" closed for the season today with 2 inches of new snow falling in the last few hours. Located in my previous home of Summit County, Colorado, A-Basin's base elevation is 10,780 feet and the altitude at the summit is 13,050 feet, making it the highest skiable terrain on the north-American continent. The Legend opened for the 07-08 ski season on October 10th of last year and the next ski season is scheduled to begin in just 18 weeks.
