Close to Boulder, no crowds, great skiing.
Lifts a little slow.
Eldora has to be Colorados best kept secret! I came to Colorado (from NZ) for 3 weeks to ski lots of different hills, and I sure did that... and of all the hills I skiied, Eldora ranks as one of my favorites! Easiy to get to, Excellent variety of terrain suits all levels of skier/rider. Amazing views, great snow. The lifts a little slow, maybe the runs aren't as long as they might be on a "big" hill, but this is a "little" hill - there's no lift line waiting! Friendly, low key, no glitz, no glamour, no fur coats or diamond rings to buy at lunch-time. Give me Eldora! I will be back for more.
