  • only 45 minutes from Denver and about a third of the cost of Breck and the other resorts on the western side of the mountains. Most people from Colorado ski here. Very nice runs. Just be sure to check...  more »
  • Worked there the summer of 77 , I believe, blasted the rock for a water & sewer line from the main ski area down to the basin with a buddy . Worked for the area under Otto Werlin for a couple of years...  more »

  • Loveland is great - super cheap, great terrain, and not crowded. It doesn't have the most vertical, the most number of lifts, or the fastest lifts but it has great value and still manages to be a ton of fun. The only downside is that there is no lodging on-site so you're stuck driving from Georgetown (not much there to do) or Frisco (a longer drive through the tunnel). Neither is a particularly challenging drive but it's nice to be really close to the slopes and not have to drive every morning and evening. Loveland has an amazing beginner package - three days of lessons, three days of rentals, and a season pass for $340. That's the price of just two lift tickets at some resorts!
  • What I liked best was the cost for the area, plus there are some great runs. Fantastic views up on the great divide. Good for all skiing abilities.
  • Top notch. Great quality skiing and so close to town. It is a pleasure driving to Loveland and avoiding the tunnel.
  • I typically frequent Vail resort Ski resorts but tried out this resort. It was very cold and windy but otherwise a great experience. The food and drinks are much cheaper there!
  • One of the best days I have had snowboarding was here. Although smaller than your typical CO ski resort, it makes up for in convenience and elevation.
