  • 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...  read 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...  read more »
  • Ok, I'm born and raised in Denver. Skied here before I could drive; my mom would drive me and a bunch of my friends. We skied, then came down for lunch, burgers cooked on a Coleman stove, by my mom, o...  read more »
  • 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.
  • Relatively inexpensive ( compared to the other front range places ). On-site ski rental shops are massively swamped at start of day, get your skis off site. Lifts are all non high speed, but the runs are good for little ones. Recommended for families.
  • I LOVE LOVELAND!!!!!!!!! It's one of the cheapest ski resorts in the area and it rocks! Its never too crowded and everyone is ridiculously nice!! Down at the valley and up in the basin, such a nice atmosphere. The mountains and slopes are great!! Went 3 times and plan to return
  • Still one of my favorite areas to ski. Maybe it's because I like supporting mom-and-pop places, or maybe it's because it's never ridiculous busy OR expensive here, like all the Vail resorts up the road. No matter, I always ski Loveland when in CO. Great terrain. It's small, yes, but the terrain is varied and can match any type of skiing you want to do. There's some steeps, some slow rollers, and there's some boot-packs. It's usually pretty windy when you get to the top of the continental divide, but what can Loveland do about that? The answer is nothing. Be prepared for some cold weather if you head to the tippy-top of the chairs. However, the new warming hut up there is worth the trip! It has an amazing view and a small snack menu, too. Wow, typing this review...I'm excited to get back to Loveland. C'mon, snow!
  • Beautiful and scenic road bike trail up here and it was not disappointed. I have to admit the bike trail I was on had either uphill the entire way or down hill all the way back so that got quite boring. But the views made up for everything with small waterfalls around the biking trail and green little Meadows off to the side that you could explore More for someone who's not looking for a diverse workout but to really get in touch with the environment.
