Reviews for Loveland Ski Area
A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
Loveland is a good ski area with great value. Not fancy but has the basic amenities. Very good beginner terrain, moderate intermediate terrain and good advanced terrain. The skiing off the Continental Divide is great when conditions are right. Some tree skiing can be found but if you are looking for tree skiing, I'd try somewhere else. ... Full Review
Fun around every turn, between the natural terrain and man made features, there is always something to jump off, bonk or jib. In addition to having some excellent double black runs off lift 9, they also have a separate beginner area, with magic carpets, 2 lifts, and its own rental/ski shop/ and bar/restaurant. This helps keep the crowds a bit more spread out, and also keeps the more advanced slopes clearer.... Full Review
I wish they would groom more of the blue runs. When we were there, they really only groomed the greens and everything else had moguls. Particularly challenging when you get a bunch of new snow and you can't even see all of them. For an intermediate skier, would be nice to have some smooth blues.... Full Review
Ongoing issue with line cutters, rude and abusive behavior from skiers, and complacent unfriendly lifters. The terrain is nice, social skills of deal-seekers is atrocious. Think Walmart.... Full Review
Great place to get early season laps. I wish I could say more, but I only got a day and a half in mid-November. Hopefully one day I’ll get an opportunity to ski Loveland later in the season. ... Full Review
Loveland is great. I grew up on a small family owned mountain, and Loveland is the same vibes. All of the staff is friendly, and you can’t beat the quick trip from Denver and getting to skip the tunnel and/or Loveland pass. The Rathskeller pub is always a vibe. Parking is free and easy and the snow is great. Love Loveland. ... Full Review
My family and I honestly love Loveland. The snow is always fresh and terrain is nice and wide so it never feels crowded.
The best thing is with it being just if 70 if traffic is horrible at the tunnel and the pass is closed, it's much easier to pull off and get the day started at Loveland rather than waiting another hour or two in traffic.
It will feel smaller than other runs say at Winter Park or Breck but if you're going from the top on a pow day it doesn't get much better.... Full Review
I had an amazing time at Loveland this last year. Loveland will provide fun for families and individuals alike, across a variety of different levels of experience. There are plenty of beginner and intermediate runs and the views are hard to beat. Beginners can expect WIDE greens and rather quick blues. You will have fun both on the mountain and off, as there are great food and beverage options. However, come with a designated driver, as there is no lodging at the ski area.... Full Review
I’ve been skiing for 35 years and this was the worst resort I’ve ever been to. My kids were signed up for ski school and we arrived 1.5 hours early, as instructed, and they STILL were late to lesson. The whole process and area reminded me of 1990. Worst part was, nobody cared. THEN we took a shuttle to next area of resort where husband and I were to rent our equipment. We usually rent because we get newest skis and then we don’t have to travel on plane with them. Process is usually very quick and painless. We literally stood in line for over 2 hours before we got our skis. So, so far, we arrived at 8:30 and it was 12:30 before we were ready to hit the slopes. But wait, we had to go get kids from ski school. Website states that lesson is from 10-1 but after arriving they tell us pickup is 12:30. We finally are on lift by 1pm. You get to top and there is NO signage! No names of runs and no indication of difficulty. To sum it up, we go to turn in equipment and the staff is yelling very loudly to us patrons to hurry up and that we better be out the door in 5 minutes. They were going to make me take all the kids stuff down to other part of ski resort even though it’s all the same place. This place is a great value if you want to waste over half the day waiting in line. Got 4 runs in today and I was there 8:30-4. ... Full Review
Best ski experience of my life. Massive yet still contained and easy to navigate, with some of the best terrain ever. Always has powder, and is in one of the most beautiful locations ever, surrounded by massive mountains. Only thing is the lifts, which are a bit slow.... Full Review
