Eldora Mountain is a fierce little hill, little known to those from outside the state, and one of the best kept secrets in our skiing community. But as more skiers look for alternatives to I-70 traffic, the secret is no longer safe.

About Eldora Mountain Resort

Eldora Mountain Resort is a local’s mountain that has been home to daytrippers from Boulder and surrounding areas. But with the rise in suffocating traffic on I-70 and massive crowds at the state’s biggest resorts, people from all over have been discovering the brilliance and soul of Eldora Mountain.

Just a quick 35-40 minute drive from Boulder and twice that from Denver, this little ski paradise boasts more skiable acres than Aspen Mountain at 680 acres. 1600 feet of vertical drop, ski trails of every type, terrain parks, Nordic skiing, tree skiing, mountain houses, family ski areas, free parking, half the cost to ski in Summit County, just tell me what else do you need to hear? Skiers from Denver and Boulder don’t just ski here because it’s closeby and they don’t have to touch the interstate. Eldora Mountain Resort has soul that skis like a mini-Keystone with a 3 mile trail.

There is no lodging up at Eldora Mountain, and about as close as you can get is Nederland, which is a quick 10 minute drive away. But the people here are calm and cool, and they aren’t part of the Colorado Ski Industrial Complex. Skiing here is about skiing. Not about where you can shop or how broke you can go buying lunch at the mid-mountain restaurants, or how good you look at apres ski. Remember: people in Colorado are really good skiers and they choose to ski here.
