Arapahoe Basin Announces New A+ Spring Season Pass

Arapahoe Basin, CO – January 26, 2009 - Arapahoe Basin Ski Area introduces the new A+ Spring Pass which includes skiing and riding at Arapahoe Basin, Breckenridge and Keystone, among many other season pass benefits. The $279 adult A+ pass is a new spring pass product available now and valid through the remainder of the 2008-2009 season.

The pass includes unlimited skiing and riding at A-Basin plus five non-transferable ski days at Breckenridge or Keystone. One of those five days can be used at Vail or Beaver Creek (some date restrictions apply). Other A+ Spring Pass benefits include a free half day lesson for the pass holder, lift ticket discounts for family and friends, and 10% off cafeteria and retail shop purchases.

"Arapahoe Basin's high alpine environment lets skiers and riders enjoy the sport long after the other resorts have closed for the season. The A+ pass is the most affordable way to ski Summit County. By getting this discounted "Spring" pass months before spring starts, our guests will get over four months on the slopes at a great value," said Alan Henceroth, Arapahoe Basin's Vice President and COO.
