    Straight skinnny without the marketing hype

    Eldora - excellent small but full-scale resort

    by alanmoroney - 27th February 2009

    Pros: Beautiful, Boulder, Snow, friendly people, prices, intruction, equipment

    Cons: some lifts without safety bars

    I love Eldora

    by Ritt - 31st December 2008

    Pros: Uncrowded great skiing

    Cons: slow lifts (but that's the only thing I could come up with)

    I miss the pearl!

    by frankpa - 12th December 2008

    Pros: Great trees and hidden stashes, and so close.

    Cons: Small,slow lifts, spend more time on lifts than riding.

    Eldora, or the pearl as i like to call it, is a gem. So close, you can ride the whole mountain, and be back to work by four. Great trees with hidden stashe... Full review
