On the Hill video: One last day of skiing at A-Basin
June 12, 2013
Today’s activity: Snowboarding at A-Basin’s closing weekend.
Conditions: Extending for one more weekend in June, Arapahoe Basin wrapped up operations for the 2012-13 with a special Friday-Sunday session June 7-9. With plenty of sun, the conditions were perfect for pond skimming, a classic closing weekend activity which was enjoyed by many over the course of the weekend. With an opening date of Oct. 14, 2012, A Basin’s season lasted almost a full eight months.
Today’s weather: Sunny, with a high near 65. Breezy, with a south southwest wind 10 to 15 mph increasing to 20 to 25 mph in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 40 mph. — National Weather Service
