Eldora Ski Area



Eldora Ski Resort has terrain for all types of skier from beginner to double black diamond. It is home to the most blue runs of any resort near Boulder. The longest run is three miles. Lessons including the Eldorables program for skiers as young as four are available at the mountain. Nordic skiing and snowshoeing are also popular at Eldora with many routes to choose from. Equipment rentals from snowshoes and Nordic skis to helmets and boots are available onsite. 

What Makes It Great

Head to Eldora Mountain Sports to pick up anything you forgot from hand warmers to an energy bar for a long day on the slopes. xThere are four restaurants to choose from from Apres drinks at the Corona Bowl Bar to American type fare at the Lodge. There are no lodging options at the mountain, but there are plenty down the hill in Boulder. Mountain biking, trail running and hiking are popular activities at Eldora in the off season from skiing. It is often windy at Eldora, so plan to bundle up and for terrain conditions to change quickly. For more info including current conditions and lift ticket prices, head to: http://www.eldora.com/.

Who is Going to Love It

Families love the easy access to kid-friendly terrain and skiers of all levels enjoy avoiding I-70 on busy winter weekends. Eldora actually has some challenging black diamond runs on the north side of the mountain, including steep trees and some tough natural bumps.
