Access to Eldora is unlimited on the new Ikon multi-mountain pass, and Eldora will be the first Ikon partner resort to open in Colorado.
Eldora is located just 21 miles west of Boulder and 47 from Denver. As the backyard ski area for Boulder County and beyond, it is the closest Ikon partner resort to Colorado’s northern Front Range. Wednesday will mark their earliest opening in more than two decades.
“With more than three feet of natural snow since October 8 and consistently cold temperatures, we are very excited to be opening earlier than we had planned,” says Brent Tregaskis, Eldora’s president and general manager. “We are fortunate to be the first Colorado resort on the Ikon Pass to open, and one of the first resorts to be open in the country. It’s going to be a great season—c’mon up!”
Early-season visitors can expect a range of offerings beginning on Wednesday. On-mountain dining options will include the Timbers Lodge, serving both breakfast and lunch, and the Timbers Tap Room, serving a variety of craft beers and cocktails. Equipment rentals and snow-sports lessons will be available starting Friday, November 16, Eldora’s original opening date.
Eldora is the only ski area served by RTD, Colorado’s largest public transportation system, with regular bus service from downtown Boulder straight to the Alpenglow chairlift and back, via the N Route. The resort strongly encourages RTD ridership and carpooling as part of its Play Forever sustainability initiative, a resort-wide priority for all POWDR-owned properties that includes many resource-conservation measures.
