The Loveland Ski Area opened for the season at 9 a.m. today. Offering skiers and riders a 1,000 foot vertical run with top-to-bottom, side-to-side coverage.
This opening is the same day that Loveland Ski Area opened last year and one day earlier than the 2004-2005 season.
“Skiers and snowboarders have been chomping at the bit for three weeks since snowmaking began and we are excited to start the season,” said John Sellers, marketing director.
Skiers and riders will access the run via Chair One at Loveland Basin and will use the trails Cat Walk, Mambo and Home Run to reach the bottom.
Loveland’s regular hours are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends and designated holidays. Early season lift tickets are $40 for adults and $19 for children (ages 6-14).
