    Loveland Ski Area Picture From The Village Cam

    Loveland has been Denver’s local mountain since 1937, making Loveland the second oldest ski area in Colorado. Throughout the years, Loveland Ski Area has focused on providing an exceptional Colorado ski & snowboard experience at an affordable price.

    Loveland Ski Area is typically one of the first ski areas in the nation to open and offers a season that runs from mid-October through early-May. The Race To Open starts in late-September when snowmaking operations begin and culminate with Opening Day.


    Just 53 miles from Denver on Interstate 70, Loveland Ski Area offers Denver’s closest full-mountain experience. Loveland Ski Area sits high atop The Continental Divide above the Eisenhower/Johnson Tunnels and this location provides Loveland Ski Area with an average of 422 inches(over 35 feet!) of seasonal snowfall, the second most in Colorado.


    Loveland Ski Area offers skiers and riders 1,800 acres of varied terrain and two separate base areas: Loveland Valley and Loveland Basin.

    Loveland Valley caters to beginners with gentle, un-crowded slopes perfect for those new to the sport.

Loveland Valley is home to the Loveland Ski & Ride School that offers affordable lessons for beginners of all ages.

    Loveland Basin offers terrain for every level of skier and snowboarder: steeps, trees, cruisers, open bowls and everything in-between. The Ridge, served by Chair 9 which takes skiers and snowboarders to 12,700′, offers intermediate and expert level skiers and riders terrain just the way they like it – open, steep and deep! With 4800 acres to choose from right off the lift and an additional 100 acres of hike-to terrain for the true adventurer, the Ridge offers an experience like no other. Loveland’s Ridge Cat also offers free snowcat skiing and riding along the north side of The Ridge in a 16 passenger snowcat.
