Let’s be honest, those of us visiting Arapahoe Basin probably aren’t here to shop. You want to get on the lift, stare down the terrain you dream about and feel the adrenaline course through your veins. Hey, we get it! For these reasons, Arapahoe Basin shopping is limited to really only one retail shop between the two commercial businesses. When visiting A Basin, Arapahoe Sports is your one stop shop for everything you need to get you ready for a day on the mountain. If you don’t have or simply forgot your sports equipment, including ski pants and jackets, you can rent it there. But if you’re in market for adding new winter sportswear to your wardrobe, you can get clothes, goggles, gloves, hats and more from recognizable brands including Patagonia and Burton. Your other option for Arapahoe shops is Crystal One Tune Shop. They specialize in repairs and touch-ups for your skis, snowboards and accessories. Their convenient location at the base of Arapahoe Basin makes it easy to swing by and take care of whatever tune ups or waxes you need before hitting the slopes.

Your closest option for the basics such as gas, groceries, clothing stores or an enriched selection equipment rental options is in Keystone. However you’ll pass lots of other shopping options like malls and outlets, recognizable brand names, stylish boutiques, children’s clothes stores, souvenir shops and more as you make your way from your Summit County hotel, vacation rental or home to reach Arapahoe Basin.
