Loveland offers un-crowded slopes at high elevation, 13,010′, with sweeping views of the Rockies and remarkable terrain, free close parking (the road actually passes right through Loveland, there is a skier tunnel) and their ski season lasts from October through May. Loveland is often first to open for skiing, October 13, 2013, and last to close in Colorado – rivaling nearby Arapahoe Basin so it is one of the best early season ski resorts in the west.
Loveland averages 400″ of snow each season – more than any Front Range or Summit County resort. From the top of the Continental Divide, Loveland is a perfect place for those that simply want to ski and ride wide open above tree-line bowls. Loveland is convenient, just 43 miles from Denver.
