Opening Weekend at A-Basin: Sunshine, Beer and Just Enough Snow

Happy skiers and snowboarders flocked to Arapahoe Basin over the weekend for the official kickoff to the 2014-'15 Colorado ski season, amid sunny conditions and a party atmosphere. While balmy weather is keeping the snow guns at bay elsewhere, it's only a matter of time before Loveland, Winter Park and eventually all the other ski resorts follow suit. Photographer Brandon Marshall hit A-Basin to record all fun in the sun; read on for a preview of our slide show.

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.


Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
