Snowmaking is now complete for the 2014-2015 season.  Uphill access is now allowed.  Please go to http://skiloveland.com/themountain/uphillaccess.aspx for rules and information.

The Valley Magic Carpet is now open for the season!  The Valley Magic Carpet is open for all guests with a valid lift ticket/season pass.  Ski Patrol also opened Drifter for the season.  Have fun!

Ski Patrol just opened up Blackjack and Keno off Chair 6.  Chair 2 will open tomorrow for the season.  The midway offload point will not be open on Chair 2.

The snow is coming down hard outside and it is supposed to continue for the next few days!  Nearly 8 inches have fallen since this storm pushed into the area last night, with several more on the way.  Chair 2 is looking like it may open sometime this week as well as Chair 3 down at the Valley.  Keep your fingers crossed that this storm brings plenty more snow and helps us get more terrain open soon!


Chair 6 opens tomorrow! Our snowmaking and trail maintenance crew have been working hard to get that area of the mountain open.  They have moved the guns from Chair 6 to Chair 2.  Guns are now going on Firebowl, Firecut, Turtle Creek and Tango Road.  The terrain park will be closed and be rebuilt off Chair 6.  Opening Day for the park TBA.  At the Valley the guns have moved off All Smiles and are now blowing snow on Twist.  The Valley will open Friday and Chair 7 will be open to the public.  The two magic carpets open to the public will not be open.  We'll post an update once those are open to the public.



Great news, Chair 6 will open this Wednesday!  Roulette will be open giving skiers and snowboarders another option for turns at Loveland.  Loveland Valley will open Friday.  Chair 7 will be open to the public.  To book your lessons call 303-571-5580.

Our patience has paid off!  The snow came down hard for the second day in a row allowing us to open Lower Richards Run giving us 2 top-to-bottom runs!  We received 7 inches on Tuesday and another 6 this morning, 13 inches in 48 hours and it looks like it will continue through the weekend!  Obviously natural snow is a huge help to our snowmakers, but the temps are staying cold too which will help with the snowmaking.  Stay tuned as more snow falls and the snowmaking efforts move to Chair 6!


Our snowmaker's hard work has paid off with the announcement that Spillway is now open!  This adds another 15 acres of skiable terrain to our already great early season runs.  The temps have stayed where we need them for continued snowmaking and the focus has now moved to Richards Run.  Rumors have it that snowmakers are moving quickly and it might not be long until we make an announcement.  Then it is off to Chair 6 and 2!


The snowmaking crew has moved their snow guns to Spillway and Lower Richards.  Temps are now staying low for most of the day allowing them to make snow 24-7.  We're hoping to get these two runs open very soon.  Keep checking back for updates.

The Park Crew has a great Early Season setup at the bottom of Mambo.

Loveland Ski Area opened today for the 2014-2015 season.  Loveland Ski Area is the second ski area in North America to open.  Skiers and riders are enjoying top-to-bottom, tree-to-tree coverage with an 18 inch base on our 1,000 vertical foot run consisting of Catwalk, Mambo, and Home Run.

The last time Loveland Ski Area opened in November was the 1992-1993 season (November 4th).  That year Loveland received 514 inches of snow!

The announcement everyone's been waiting for!  Loveland Ski Area will open for the 2014-2015 Saturday, November 1st.  First chair will be at 8:30am.  Special thanks to our snowmaking crew for all their hard work during this warm October.  Get your skis & boards ready, ski season is here!

The weather has cooperated the past couple days giving our snowmakers perfect conditions to make snow.  We've had the snow guns going for 32 hours straight.  As you can see there is still a good amount of snow to be made on Home Run.  We’re working our hardest to get the mountain open as fast as we can and we appreciate your patience during this warm October we’ve had.  The temps are going to drop again tonight and we're planning for another good night of snowmaking.


After a week of record highs, the cold temperatures have returned to the high country along with a little bit of snow. The snowmakers got back to work last night and as of 10:00am, the snow guns were still producing snow on the bottom half of the hill. The forecast is calling for cold nights and warm days this week. While that is not ideal, we hope to take advantage of the cold nights and get this season started soon! It is still too early to make an opening day announcement, but we will continue to work around the clock to put the finishing touches on the lower portion of the mountain. Think snow!!


Another morning of snowmaking on Home Run. Looks like a cold front is moving in Sunday. Our snowmakers should be able to bust a lot of this out next week.

We're hoping the weather cools down so we can make snow and open these gates for the 2014-2015 season. This weekend was too warm for our snowmakers to make snow. Do your snow dances and send some winter weather this way.

Mother Nature is throwing another curve ball at us.  Looks like temps might be on the warmer side the next few days.  We're keeping our fingers crossed for low humidity and low temps that way we can get a wet bulb temp low enough that allows our snowmaking team to make snow and finish up Home Run.  We'll keep you updated on any snowmaking news we get.

Congratulations to our neighbors Arapahoe Basin Ski Area on their Opening Day announcement! Our snowmakers are still working hard to get Loveland Ski Area open for the season. We'll keep you up to date on our progress and any Opening Day news as we get them. We'll be open soon, we promise!


10/15/14It was too warm last night to turn the snow guns on. The Trail Maintenance Crew is busy pushing the snow out on Catwalk and Mambo. We're hoping temps drop tonight so we can turn
