Denver – May 2010 – Snow Fun at Arapahoe Basin

A niece graduating from high school in Colorado was a perfect excuse for a road trip. After a fairly long Frontier Airlines flight to Denver, we took off for the mountains, Arapahoe Basin to be exact.

After passing through town we continued west on I-70.

Eventually we arrived at A-Basin, got our passes and rentals, and headed up the mountain.

The view at the very top was initially obscured by clouds, but after a brief drop down the view was spectacular. What a great day that was.
