Eldora Mountain Resort in Colorado and Escape2ski connect you to skiing, snowboarding, snow reports, trail maps, lift tickets, lodging and webcams. The ski area is located near Nederland in Boulder County, Colorado. The Resort opened in 1962 as a day area ski facility and remains that way today. Eldora Mountain Resort is one of the few Colorado ski and snowboard areas located on the eastside of the Continental Divide and in close proximity to the city of Boulder, Colorado. Getting to Eldora Mountain Resort from Boulder is along Boulder Canyon Drive, which is quite a scenic route, but keep in mind; it is mostly a two-lane road. Eldora is a locals-friendly mountain, relaxed and unpretentious and one of Colorado’s best-kept secrets for families.

At Escape2ski you’ll find out – What to know …before the snow.

Off the Slopes

  • In need of some food, beverages and perhaps a well deserved break? Visit one of the four restaurants located at Eldora Mountain Resort to answer the call for hunger. Included in this list of restaurants is the Corona Bowl Bar, located upstairs in the Timberlodge - a great place to enjoy some après ski.
  • Looking for an alternative to being on the slopes, you are in luck; 25mi/40km of cross-country skiing and snowshoe trails are available for your pleasure. The Nordic centre is open daily from 9:00am to 4:00pm. The purchase of a pass is required before venturing onto the trails. Rentals and lessons are available.

  • Searching for new gear, Eldora Mountain Sports has three locations, two on the mountain and one in Boulder, to satisfy all of your ski or snowboard requirements.
  • Take the RTD bus to Eldora. It's the only resort with scheduled bus service! RTD bus departs from 14th & Walnut RTD Station in Boulder, stops downtown Nederland, then drops you off right in front of the Main Lodge at Eldora where it leaves to go back at the end of the day. This service is seasonal to Eldora Mountain Resort.
