"Being on the mountain in an hour... always picking up hitch hikers on the pass... front row parking... powder days in October and May... always a powder day on my birthday... High Noon... Church in the trees... opening day and closing day... " M. Cortez

"When everything else is closing, the Legend is just getting started." S. Hill

"The Legend to me means, a throwback to 20 years ago when it was about skiing and the people you meet while skiing. Now all the other resorts are just worried about having the biggest terrain parks, the fastest lifts, and the most gaudy shops and condos slopeside." G. Mayberry

"To me the Legend means, Legendary Powder, Legendary Snow Conditions, Legendary Skiing, Legendary Steeps on East Wall, Pali, and now Montezuma Bowl, Legendary Apres Ski both on the Legendary Beach, and the Legendary 6th Alley including the Bacon at the Basin Bloody Mary's." M. Maher

"The Legend means many hours spent in the powder, cliffs, chutes, bumps, trees, and bowls of pure heaven. Early 90s for me! Worked at the Midway Grill for a year, Summit County for 5 years. Loved it!" B. Cutter

"What does the Legend mean to me? A-Basin is one of a kind, no pretense, glitter or glam, just awesome skiing. The alleys of Pali are the best. I hope to ski it this season!" T. Glockner

"Great skiing, years of wonderful memories... such as having our RV towed from the lot by a groomer. Please don't change." K. Garlapow
