Loveland Ski Area was the first ski area to open in Colorado on October 24th. Snowfall gave snowmakers a helping hand by delivering nearly 3 feet of natural snow. Conditions are great at Loveland Ski Area! The Snowmaking & Trail Main Crew are working hard to get more trails open. They’re working on the Valley (Chair 3 & 7) and Chair 2. They’re also working on trying to get the park moved to Tempest. Keep checking back for updates.
