Eldora is just 21 miles from Boulder and 45 miles from Denver. Avoid the stress of I-70's notorious congestion. Eldora is a locals-friendly mountain, relaxed and unpretentious. One of Colorado's best kept secrets for families. There's something for everyone - steeps, bumps, glades, terrain park, groomed corduroy for cruising. A Children's Center where learning to ski or snowboard is fun. 40km of x-country and snowshoe trails. Free close-in parking and RTD bus service that drops you 50ft from the lift.

We stayed in Boulder and took the daily drive for 3 days of skiing at Eldora. There are no frills and the food is very average. The scenery was beautiful and we enjoyed the ride from Boulder. We did experience severe winds. While we enjoyed many things, take note that the runs are short and the lifts are slow.

Local area close to Boulder and Northwestern quadrant Front Range. Conditions were reminiscent of a very good ski day in Vermont, i.e. some loose snow with firm base, and hence fair to good conditions for Western skiers. Expect less vertical than a top to bottom run in Summit County areas but similar to upper or lower mountain runs there. Weekdays... More

We were disappointed with the snow conditions as it was no different than skiing in the northeast. We decided to cross country ski, but the snow didn't look very good. Ended up snow shoeing and even then we were walking on grass and rocks. It was still a fun adventure with the family, just wasn't the snow we were hoping... More

Easy drive up, pre bought tickets online, nice Jr price $54, not crowded, nice variance of ability on the mountain, good food at lodge, enough staff, Enough shuttles from parking lots. Great mountain for students since it's $199 for season pass and it's 30 min away..how great. We had a nice day and it was easy.. we give it an... More

Eldora ski is a great place for beginners. Slopes are well kept and have different degrees of difficulty from the first timers to the seasoned. Nederland is a great little town with several vintage shops. Fun!!

I have a disability related to my leg muscles, so I am unable to ski or snowboard. Ignite (the special needs skiing rental place) was a separate building quite a walk away from the main attractions of the resort, and is only open on saturdays and sundays. There were no other activities for disabled people (snow tubing, snow mobiles), and... More

Grew up skiing at winter park. Live in Lakewood. This place was on our pass this year. This place is a nice 44 mile drive that takes about 1 hour and 10 minutes from my house. This is my second time this season with my wife. If you are going to hit this place, the key is get there early.... More

We took our grandchildren for their first ski lessons. At age four, they were gently encouraged and learned safely skiing well after just a few lessons.

There is clearly not enough parking when you have to turn cars away before the lifts even start running. Beware if you are going on a weekend you need to now get up as early as you needed to get up to ski somewhere on I-70. So disappointing to load up your family, drive up to what used to be... More

We had an awesome time. We happened to be there on a Monday when very few skiers were there. We are new skiers so it was great for us to learn without being crowded. The mountain is smaller than some of the more popular places, but it is still a beautiful setting. The drive from Golden to Nederland and then... More
