Eldora Mountain Resort opened for its 50th season today, Friday, November 16th. The resort opened with three trails and three lifts operating. Hornblower and International, from the top of Challenge Mountain, and the beginner area behind Indian Peaks Lodge opened. Cold temperatures which moved in last weekend allowed snowmaking operations to run through this week, providing a 20 inch base of machine made snow. Lifts will operate from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Are you a Gems card holder? If so, be prepared for this Friday (11/16/2012), when you can save 59% on a full day adult lift ticket at Loveland Ski Area. Simply present your Gems card at the ticket window and you’ll be skiing or riding this Friday for only $20.
Two more resorts started turning chairs today, Winter Park and Wolf Creek. Recent storms have aided efforts to open, with Winter Park receiving 15 inches over the weekend, and Wolf Creek accumulating 20 inches.
After recording 15” of new snow over the past weekend, Winter Park Resort will celebrate its 73rd Opening Day tomorrow, November 14, with good conditions complemented by an entire day of activities.

Where do you ski in Colorado? If you’re like many of us, you’ve got a home resort that you return to year after year, week after week and day after day. You love your resort. You know every roller and glade. You know where to farm powder and you’ve sworn never to divulge the locale. You’re plugged into the best season pass deals and you’ve got your favorite spots for lunch, beer and coffee. If you’ve got kids, they’ve grown up skiing at this resort. It’s their second home.
So why would you try some place new?
With Veterans Day around the corner, and as winter settles in over Colorado, Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) reminds military members that resorts have a menu of options for them to get on the slopes this ski season. To make it easier for military and retired military personnel to enjoy Colorado’s unmatched skiing, CSCUSA resorts are offering a surplus of savings on lift ticket and pass options.
The San Juan Ski Company believes they provide untracked and unmatched cat skiing in the world and have added an extra piece this year. Booking a cat skiing trip months in advance can be a gamble. But if you book with San Juan Ski Company and your trip dates come and there is no powder to be had, you will receive a refund. They guarantee you will ski powder.
