The Pallavicini chairlift at Arapahoe Basin Ski Area is now open for the 2022-23 season. The legendary, two-seater lift started spinning at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 8 — a full eight days prior to when it opened last season.

According to a news release, the recent snowfall helped A-Basin open the lift so that guests could enjoy powder turns without long lines Thursday.

The Pallavicini Lift opened with access to West Wall, Slalom, Powder Keg, North Chute, South Chute and Grizzly Road. Terrain will be limited with early season conditions. The lift opens up at 9 a.m. on weekdays and 8:30 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. It will close at 3:30 p.m. daily.



The addition of the Pallavicini Lift means A-Basin now has three lifts open to service beginner through advanced terrain.

A-Basin will host a Friday Afternoon Club on Friday, Dec. 9 with $39 lift tickets available between 2 and 4 p.m. with appetizer and drink specials in the 6th Alley Bar and Grill from 2 p.m. to close. Tickets for the Friday Afternoon Club must be purchased in advance online at ArapahoeBasin.com.
