Arapahoe basin trail question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I had a look at the Arapahoe basin trail map and i wonder how to access the upper east wall... i cannot believe this is considered part of the ski area without lift access?

Yes, it does require some in-bounds hiking.

Quite a cool ski area though.

Wags, PwoderJunkie,
thank you folks, looks like i'll give it a run!

As wags almost implies, hike the top of the ridge above the wall and enter the chutes.

Last time I checked the upper east wall was still closed. It can't be much longer till they open it and I can't wait, I think that's some of my favorite skiing in the world.

yea it'll probly be mid-late march before they get it open, but its some sick terrain once they do. about 20-25 min. hike to your first option, and 45-50 min to the top. we also build some nice kickers in the spring on the lower east wall where there is traverse access.
