  • Echo Mountain's appeal is that they are the closest resort to Denver and you can ski for a much lower price ($49/day for an adult). If you need to rent though, it's going to set you back another $35 (and that doesn't include goggles or a face mask). If you come after a snowstorm, you will likely need 4WD to get out of their parking lot as you have to go up a big hill. The biggest downside to this place is that it's only 600 ft vertical drop as opposed to the big resorts are closer to 3,000 ft. So from the top to the bottom here, it only takes me about 1 minute. There is only one lift and basically three runs (two intermediate, one beginner). I came on a Wednesday and was one of about eight skiers at the whole place, which was cool but also weird in a way. The girl at the counter to buy tickets from was on the phone for several minutes without acknowledging me - I was bummed to see that after hearing about the great customer service. The guy doing the ski rentals was great! The food room was pretty good with decent prices. If you want to ski ASAP, come here and it's good value. Personally, it's not for me as I prefer many more trail options and longer vertical drop to ski longer.
  • I love Echo Mountain. It's so close and such an easy drive. Don't have to mess with the frustrations of I-70. I can get in about a dozen runs and get home without being gone all day. The staff is friendly. The prices are reasonable and there is a nice bar and grille to get a drink and bite to eat. Great for the family.
  • Underrated as a half-day activity, overrated as a full-day destination. Food and lodge atmosphere was great. Bonus points for no lines at the chair, lose points for Christian music on the mountain. Very excited to see what changes they make over the summer!
  • Super friendly staff, Facilities are really nice. Definitely recommend going after work to snowboard for a few hours. Not many people here, so it was good for me to practice snowboarding on some decent trails. Only downside is that there are not many trails, but still a great place to go.
  • Echo's a well kept secret of Evergreen... It's so much easier than sitting in traffic on I-70 to pay $170 for a 30min lift line at Breck or Keystone. It's a quick trip from Denver with affordable tickets (AND food), and the runs are perfect for all skill levels.
