Arapahoe Basin's awesome East Wall.

The East Wall has a summit elevation of 13,050 feet (3,978 m), which is among the highest in-bounds skiable terrain in North America. Due to its high elevation and its mostly north-to-northeast face, the Basin’s ski season is much longer than most resorts in North America.
