A-Basin closes due to too much snow, avalanche danger

As snow keeps falling along the Continental Divide and in Colorado's mountains... several ski resorts have had to close. 

Seems strange, right? 

But, it's true. Too much snow has actually made skiing and traveling conditions too dangerous. 

Due to perilous avalanche concerns, Arapahoe Basin announced they're closing all skier services Tuesday afternoon. 

The closure began at 1:00 p.m. 

A-Basin was not the first ski resort in Colorado to have to close due to too much snow. 

Monarch Mountain announced its closure early Tuesday, and Crested Butte ski area closed Monday, but was reopened by Tuesday. They've seen 30 inches of snow in the past 48 hours!
