Eldora is a locals-friendly mountain, relaxed and unpretentious. One of Colorado's best kept secrets for families. There's something for everyone - steeps, bumps, glades, terrain park, groomed corduroy for cruising. A Children's Center where learning to ski or snowboard is fun. 40km of x-country and snowshoe trails. Free close-in parking and RTD bus service that drops you 50ft from the lift. « less

This is a wonderful ski resort before you go up the mountain if you go straight down the road you'll come to the old old old town of Eldora, it's all but deserted now except for a few fishing camps along the creek it's a wonderful village to see.

The resort itself is a nice enough place to look at, and it's close to Denver, but I've never been there before when the wind hasn't been terrible. So, be prepared. That being said, I was always willing to deal with the wind...until this past season. We enrolled our children in ski school for the day and hoped they'd develop... More

Since we'd been to a fancy ski resort before, we assumed all Colorado ski resort will all be the same. We were wrong! If you just want to ski or snowboard, this is the place to be. You can start shredding the snow as soon as you get off from a bus. You can park close to the resort but... More

We skied for a day at Eldora and it was a highly satisfactory experience. There were runs of all sorts for everyone from beginners to pros. The staff was very nice and the tickets were decently priced. The day we skied, Eldora was not crowded at all, but about half of the runs were closed, therefore only about half the... More

I recently put my 4 and 6 year olds into beginner ski school. I was told there would be 4 students for the all day lesson when I registered them. They told me to arrive an hour early to get set up which I did. My little ones waited inside for almost 2 hours because they we an hour late... More

Our recent trip to Colorado wasn't necessarily intended to be a "ski vacation", but we thought we would spend a day at Eldora because it was pretty close to Denver and we don't get anywhere near ski resorts too often. The snow was magnificent, and we actually went back a second day to ski some more. Some people knock Eldora... More

I have been in a lot of Ski resorts in Colorado and all of them are awsome except for Eldora Ski Resort. It is a really small resort, normally cold and windy, but it is nobody's fault. The worst is that we arrived there after a long trip, and after waiting a long line, we were told to go back... More

First of all..it was my first time snowboarding so I can't really compare to other locations. From a newbie point of view, here's what I gathered: 1.Very friendly staff will help set you up with your equipment and even help you put it on if you're completely lost like me. 2. Don't ask for help if you didn't pay to... More

Eldora has decent terrain but the facilities are too small for the crowds that the mountain draws. Any time we were in any of the buildings, we were elbow to elbow with the masses. There was very little room to get changed, in the lodge, and there was even less room to stow items such as duffle bags or shoes.... More

Decent skiing here. Close to Boulder. It was VERY windy and cold today. Some good runs overall but as others have said the grooming is poor. Lots of ice.
