Eldora Mountain Resort is only 21 miles (about 35 minutes) west of Boulder, Colorado, making it the easiest resort for most people on the Front Range to get to. Coming from DIA, it is also the closest ski resort. In fact, their slogan is, “Eldora: Closer to You.”
And while this resort isn’t as popular as some of the bigger names, it still has so many things skiers and riders love. There are dozens of runs of all levels for both alpine and nordic skiing. The ski passes are an incredible deal and you can’t find a better place to take the whole family with the pricing and the proximity in the Front Range. There are four places to eat on the mountain so you can regain your energy during or after a long day on the slopes.
Eldora may have hit 55 years old but that doesn’t mean that they don’t have something brand new for you. Recently purchased by Powdr Adventure Lifestyle Co. Eldora is looking fresh these days. Powdr also now owns Copper Mountain, and they are making these resorts more sustainable so we can continue to play in the snow. The latest member of the Eldora family is the high-speed six-seater chairlift, “The Alpenglow Lift.” You can sit comfortably enjoying the scenic view of the pines and peaks then hit the slopes faster. This isn’t the only new feature to Eldora, but they also added a few more runs and remodeled the bathrooms. Who said you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?
Eldora and our parent company, POWDR, intend to "Play Forever". Through this new initiative, we are committed to both protecting the environment and inspiring participation in adventure.
Together, we’ve made great strides toward protecting the long-term viability of the mountain adventure community and the planet, including a nearly 50% reduction in our carbon footprint over a ten year period. But more can be done. Ultimately, the soul of our sports depends on the health of our planet, and protecting the environment is core to who we are. We believe we all have a responsibility to do everything we can to keep the places we love around. It is our intention to not only protect these places that enable a life full of adventure, but also provide access through community partnerships, scholarships, training, learn-to programs, and empowering youth.
We share our mission to Play Forever with everyone who comes more alive in the mountains or while at play, and we express this commitment in unique ways local to each POWDR destination.
POWDR’s founder, John Cumming, grew up skiing, hiking, climbing, and loving to live the adventure lifestyle with his family, and we desire to deliver this same enjoyment to each of our guests and team members, for generations to come.
