KEYSTONE, Colo. (AP) — Arapahoe Basin Ski Area is selling a season pass that's good for not just one season but two.

A-Basin's so-called Double Down pass is good for the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons and costs $499 for adults. Single-season adult passes are still available for $299.

The Colorado ski area on the Continental Divide says the two-season pass is only available until Dec. 31.

People who buy season passes offered by Vail Resorts Inc. also can get access to A-Basin, but unlike ski areas operated by Vail Resorts, the relatively no-frills A-Basin has no lodging or base village.

Arapahoe Basin is perhaps best known for its long season, which Chief Operating Officer Alan Henceroth says averages 233 days.
