Spring at Arapahoe Basin, Day 2

Another nice morning at Arapahoe Basin! It started out with a mostly clear sky and the occasional cloud here and there. Later on, around noon, clouds started rolling in. The forecast is calling for snow starting in the afternoon. Hopefully there will be some accumulation to refresh what’s currently on the ground! The conditions were decent today for spring though it got rather slushy later on in the lower third of the mountain.

I brought the telephoto lens today. I only carry one lens at a time while skiing so that it all fits in one small bag. The photos are quite different from the wide angle that I used yesterday!

Some distant mountain views taken from A-Basin. Some amazing scenery to be seen from just about everywhere!

While the mountains along the horizon are beautiful, its nice to look down once in awhile as well! Most of these are from the upper quarter or so of the mountain.

Breckenridge, Keystone, and Lake Dillon are visible to the west from the top of the Beavers lift. Keystone is closed for the season but Breck is still open.

Close up views of Arapahoe Basin from the front side of the mountain! Quite a few of these are from the Lenawee lift as the ride up gives quite a bit of time for photography! The remainder are at places where it is safe and convenient to stop.
