If you have a young family with multiple small children under 10. Loveland Valley is the perfect spot for your children to learn to ski. Parking, daycare, restrooms, tickets, ski shop, lifts, AND hot cocoa within just a few steps. I taught my three sons who were ages 6 mos.-5 to ski there all by myself. (My sons were ski school dropouts!) Everything is within line of sight and very close so no one is too tired at the end of the day to walk back to the car. Lifties are friendly and helpful with little ones who need a little extra assistance getting on the lift. Thanks to the user friendliness of every aspect of Loveland Valley, I enjoyed teaching my sons and they LOVE skiing and riding. Incidentally, they are now 29, 26 and 24.
Postings by others that Loveland is a skier/rider mountain are absolutely correct. Loveland is known for its wind which continually fills in the tracks for days after a snowstorm. The result is a clean slate to track up again. In the cafeteria, be sure to try out the soup. It is inexpensive and phenomenally good. Bring your own mug or cup and receive a major discount on all non-alcoholic beverages. Try out the special $15 ski tuning
offer from 11-1 in the repair shop next to the rental shop.
