Loveland Ski Area in Colorado and Escape2ski connect you to skiing, snowboarding, snow reports, trail maps, lift tickets, lodging and webcams.

Loveland Ski Area is located in the Arapahoe National Forest adjacent to Interstate 70 in Colorado. Loveland Ski Area enjoys the distinction of being the closest ski area to Denver, Colorado. In fact, the I-70 runs right through the ski area via the Eisenhower and Johnson Tunnels. Loveland Ski Area opened in 1936, making it the second oldest ski area in Colorado.

Loveland Ski Area is the combination of the Loveland Basin and Loveland Valley ski areas. The two areas are connected by an inter-mountain shuttle, which runs continually throughout the day.

Located on the continental divide, Loveland Ski Area is one of Colorado’s highest ski areas with a summit of 13,010 ft or 3966 m and has the second highest lift served areas in North America at 12,697 ft or 3870 m.

At this elevation, be prepared, drinks lots of water and start slowly until you get used to the altitude, you do not want to ruin a chance for that perfect day.

The ski area averages approximately 400 inches or 1016 cm of snow per year and there is more than enough terrain to satisfy everyone. You’ll be greeted with everything from bowls, with the potential for powder, steeps with moguls and the lower runs, which are groomed for a day of cruising. For terrain that will certainly get your heart pumping, try Avalanche Bowl, Over The Rainbow or Zoom.

Loveland Ski Area certainly has that “wow factor” when you hit the slopes. The terrain is so vast, and the views are nothing short of spectacular on a clear day. From the summit, looking to the west you’ll have a great view of some of Colorado’s other spectacular ski areas.

Lodging can be found 12 miles or 20 km in either direction of the ski area, Georgetown to the east and Silverthorne to the west.

Loveland Ski Area is a favourite of the locals and a great place to relax and have some fun!
