With 32″ of snow so far this winter, 28″ in the last week, and 15″ in the last 24-hours, the new opening day of November 1st will be their earliest opening in 20-years. The previous earliest was last year on November 7th, so this year is a full week ahead of that.
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.
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.
