Boulder is better known as a college town than a ski town. The Colorado Front Range city is home to the University of Colorado, but it also happens to be just 30 minutes from the slopes of Eldora Mountain Resort. The drive up Boulder Canyon is beautiful.
The City of Boulder is working with Eldora to offer the Boulder Ski Escape package. It includes lodging and lift tickets, with deals starting at $64.50 per person for a one-night stay.
Some deals with the package include breakfast and transportation. Packages are good Nov. 20 through April 11, which are the dates Eldora is open this winter.
Boulder offers shopping and entertainment. It was recently voted the number one sports town in America by Outside Magazine, thanks to hiking, climbing, and bike trails in and around the city.
Eldora is 21 miles west of Boulder. The ski area offers more than just skiing and snowboarding. You also can cross-country ski and snowshoe at Eldora. It’s also where the University of Colorado ski team does a lot of its training. Eldora’s longest run is three miles. The base area of Eldora has an elevation of 9,200 feet above sea level. Top elevation is 10,800 feet.
