Keystone and Copper Mountain: Opening Tomorrow!

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

Keystone and Copper Mountain Ski Resorts are Opening Tomorrow! It’s a November 1 opening, just as God intended. What better way to start November, ushering in the winter season? Copper Mountain has the “E” open as well: The Excelerator lift. Oh, and the Loot Lift looks interesting:

This might be the year I ski Keystone a bit too!

Eldora Ski Resort just sent me an email. Well, they emailed a lot of people, so it’s not like they’ve given me any special treatment. Yet. I have the feeling we are going to be the best of friends, and really I don’t ask for much… just soft clean snow upon which to ski. Oh, but I digress!

The road up to Eldora Ski Resort has been opened! This is record speed, considering the huge amount of flood damage in this area around Boulder.

Eldora Opening Day Announced!

Saturday, October 5th, 2013

I did end up getting season passes at Eldora for the 2013-2014 season. Their opening day is November 22, but considering it is probably snowing there right now… it could be earlier. Some quick notes:
– Since Kids 5 and under ski free, I only ended up getting season passes for my 7 year old and myself. The family pass would have been nice though: It’s a great option.

– This area of Nederland was hard hit in the recent flood. Hopefully skiing Eldora will help that community in some small way.

– With the recent Colorado flood, I was worried the road to Eldora would be closed. But it looks to be opened by mid-October. Plenty of time. And hopefully no delays due to the federal government shutdown.

– RTD actually has daily bus service to Eldora! I’m excited by that possibility, and emailed the schedule to my phone.
