"The A-Basin east wall has a summit elevation of 13,050 feet (3977m), making it the highest skiable terrain in North America. Due to its high altitude (at treeline) and its mostly north to northeast face, the Basin remains open for skiing much longer than most Colorado resorts, and often starts earlier as well. It sometimes stays open until July. A-Basin is located just below Loveland Pass. It therefore offers a spectacular view of the Continental Divide (which it borders) from the lifts."
