Early Season Snowmaking at Loveland Ski Area

Ever wonder how the resorts are able to have such great conditions when Mother Nature is not cooperating? It is all due to the guys with the big guns at the resorts, the snowmakers! Check out what it takes to be one of the first resorts in the nation to open and how they maintain those conditions into the summer.

Loveland’s Lead Snowmaker Mark Eldring takes us on a behind-the-scenes tour of the operation. He shows us how they blast the fluffy white stuff into the air to build the base. Cold temperatures, low humidity and a little help from mother nature doesn’t hurt.

Known for great early season conditions, Loveland is proud to offer locals a chance to warm up their legs to prepare for a long season ahead.
