Loveland

Loveland Ski Area straddles the Continental Divide with a summit of over 13,000 feet! That altitude allows it to be among the very first ski areas to open in Colorado (and the last to close) each year.

A Local Secret

This area has long been a secret of the locals because it has not been developed into a resort. Not only are lift ticket prices lower and the lines shorter, but you’re in some of the very best powder in Colorado. The ski area is actually broken into two areas of the mountain. One is the Valley, with a base of 10,600 feet and a summit of 11,020 feet. The main area is the Basin, with its base at 10,800 feet. From before this majestic mountain, cast your gaze up 2,410 feet and you’ll spy the summit. At 13,010 feet—we’re talking about some major heights and seriously awesome powder.

Loveland has snowmaking on over 160 acres, and a minimum of 18 inches of base are in place by the time they open their first 1,000 vertical feet in mid-October. When the snow comes to the Rockies, it receives over 400 inches. That’s more than 33 feet of packed and fluffy powder. The ski area offers 1,570 acres of skiable terrain. There are more than 90 trails, 13 percent are for beginners, 41 percent are designated as intermediate slopes, and a whopping 46 percent are advanced and expert runs—and one of the runs is two miles long. Read the Ski Experience for the skinny on the area. You know when there is that kind of powder around, there is a terrain park full of boxes and rails and jumps and jams. All season long, Snowboarders are in heaven here. Discover more about this wild ride with Terrain Parks.

Off the Slopes

A rider’s place, you’ll find hearty, affordable meals for refueling on the mountain. Lunch restaurants include mexican, sandwiches, pastas, soups, fresh pizza, etc. If it’s warm enough, they’ll even fire up a BBQ outside. When the day is done, there are quite a few opportunities for dinner, lodgings, and après ski. The closest town is Georgetown, but folks may also enjoy taking the back road into Silverthorne or Dillon, all within a dozen miles. Idaho Springs is on the way back to Denver, and then there are all of the other awesome ski town attractions of neighboring Summit County. Frisco and Breckenridge are both with a half-hour’s drive. You won’t run out of places to go, things to do, or people to meet!
