Colorado is known for its amazing ski slopes, and now the 2011-2012 ski season is upon us!
Eldora Mountain Resort is set to open Friday, November 18. Eldora Mountain Resort is located within Boulder County. It’s easy to get to the resort, which is only about a 45-minute drive from the city of Boulder.
The resort plans to open on Friday with a total of eight trails and four ski lifts operating. The ski area has both machine-made and packed-powder snow. Eldora officials expect there to be a 23-inch base when the resort opens on Friday.
The trails set to open are Hornblower/International, Jolly Jug/Sunset and Windmill trails on Challenge Mountain. Other openings on Little Hawk Mountain include Upper and Lower Bunnyfair and Sun Kid.
Eldora will open the lifts at 9 am and close them at 4 pm.
As the weather permits, Eldora plans to open more trails. The resort has lessons, rentals and sells food and drinks.
