I was contacting eldora via email asking about lift tickets and pricing. I wanted a half day ticket which you can only purchase onsite. When I went to purchase the ticket in person, the man working there was extremely rude and had a bad attitude. He mocked my questions and wasn’t friendly at all. I was confused about the half day price and was just trying to get some clarity. ... Full Review
My son purchased a week day pass for me in November 2020. When I went to use it, I was stopped and the lift attendants said that my pass was invalid. I was holding up the lone and felt embarrassed and humiliated. Ended up my son purchased a Nordic pass instead of Alpine pass. We wanted to pay the difference to upgrade to alpine and they made us purchase a guest ticket on top of the pass price that we already paid. We were told to call customer service. After many tries my son gave up and this week, I finally tried. They refuse to refund his pass money and they, now, would upgrade the pass and make us pay the difference. It’s March 1st!! They have gotten so corporate and greedy. Very disappointing. ... Full Review
Payed 104$ with the ikon buddy pass and the card they gave us didn’t even scan right so it held up the line every time. And on top of it the food is way way over priced it’s 15$ just for a hamburger. There are slow signs everywhere with ski patrol waiting to yell at u and take your pass away. It’s hard to enjoy skiing here when u pay so much for so little. You spend half your time waitng in lines too ... Full Review
Eldora is relatively small with slow lifts servicing most terrain. It’s well known for its strong, steady winds. The parking lots often fill up early and they close the access road. On powder days and holidays it’s quicker to get skiing at the big mountains considering parking lots fills up and you have to wait parked in your car in Nederland until afternoon for the parking to thin out. Perfect example of over selling, underdelivering. ... Full Review
Eldora has fallen into the corporate trap of greed and is chasing the tails of the larger corporate resorts in Colorado. Despite investing in a new chairlift helping improve the uphill experience, the result has been increased lift ticket costs for new skiers and expensive food options. With only 680 acres and minimal snowfall, Eldora has become the most expensive lift ticket per acre in the entire state of Colorado.... Full Review
For its size it has fun, varied terrain. Quite a few glades and even some steeps way up top. Come on a weekday and go to Corona or Indian Peaks lift and you'll have it all to yourself. Can be windy and icy but it is, after all, a mountain. I haven't had any poor service experiences like some folks on here. Obviously can't compete with the big mountains so 4 stars. But great for what it is!... Full Review
I bought a 4 pack from Eldora last year. It didn’t work on the 4th punch. I spent about 2 hours trying to get it fixed. Big pain! Then when I asked for some sort of compensation they gave me 6 days to use some ski passes. The highway was closed. I work. This was ridiculous. Not compensation for all my trouble. Their product didn’t work. Buyer beware.... Full Review

Plenty of good trails for advanced skiers. Great terrain park. Groomed front to back. Super quick lift lines. Lodges can get busy on Saturdays/Sundays. Afternoons will tend to get windy so wear layers. Family center seems great. Salto Glades area is some of the steepest tree skiing in Colorado.... Full Review
I visited Eldora last week and had a blast! Its proximity to Boulder is super convenient. There is a bunch of fun and challenging terrain and plenty of powder in the trees. The local mountain feel is a breath of fresh air. I would highly recommend cruising up the canyon and checking out ... Full Review
