Eldora Mountain Resort Reviews
Eldora was really nice. I had a private class, and my instructor was so nice! It isn't the best skiing, but it was good for a first time. I personally preferred Steamboat Springs, but Eldora was good ... more »
Perfect for families and those looking for less crowded mountains. My family had a great time. I'd give it 5 stars if it weren't for an AWFUL experience with one of the ski instructors named Molly. Sh... more »
The parking lot for the ski resort fill up very fast so in order to get a decent spot you need to arrive at 8 A.M. or earlier, also this resort isn't really full compared to Copper and Keystone which ... more »
Eldora is great! Excellent free parking options right up to the lift. They have a section for beginner terrain that segregates beginners and experts. A fantastic place to learn without a fear of high speed skiers/boarders intermixing. The views (I'm a sucker for a view) are fantastic featuring different view aspects than the Summit County terrain. Some nice lakes to see (pictured)! Lifts are pretty moderate speed but Eldora is a locals gem. The terrain off the main and one lift over will get you great blues both steep and medium. One more over and you start hitting a variety of steep black runs that are open and fantastic. The runs aren't extreme length or duration but without the huge lift lines you can really jam. I had a wonderful time in summer like temps without it having snowed for at least a week, to put it in perspective. I can only imagine what it'd be like if we had a real winter this season.
Of course this time of year you can expect ice and slush. Well I was not disappointed on that front. First off I got to park in the front row. Walked to the lift which had zero line all day. Made 11 runs by noon. That new 6 pack high speed lift is great unless you need time to rest... I did hit a slush spot and crash. The hamburgers suck. All in all it was a great day. I'm going back next season.
Got lucky when we went skiing. Mother nature dumped 7 inches of fresh powder. Even though the resort was short staffed they did a great job if accommodating the patrons. This year they added an new lift which holds 6 skiers. It is really fast getting up to the summit. They also increased their freestyle area. The Woodward area had some great rails and jumps. There is three levels so skiers or boarders at anyevel can try it out.
This was our first time skiing at a more local mountain spot. They have a new high speed 6 person chairlift that gets you to the top of the mountain pretty quick. They have some nice groomed trails. There is also some good tree riding for the more experienced skier/boarder. Nice terrain park as well. Head up to the Lookout for some nice views.
First ski trip, and loved it. All staff was very laid back, but very informative and helpful. Take lessons for your first time. $338 for 2 adults, included rental and lift tickets, we stayed from 9am-4pm. Take a cooler to save a bunch of money on food and drinks.
