Come experience the world-class Nordic Center in your backyard!
Our famous Nordic Center is just east of Eldora’s alpine trails, where the vibe is decidedly different. Over at “Nordic,” it’s a bit quieter—but no less invigorating and dramatic. Our trails wind through old-growth forests, meander across expansive alpine meadows, and showcase dramatic mountain backdrops. It’s not unusual when you’re out there to see a hawk swooping overhead or moose tracks winding through the trees.
2021/22 UPHILL ACCESS PASSES
EARN YOUR TURNS!
For skiers and snowboarders wishing to climb and descend the alpine slopes under their own power, Eldora offers uphill access. Uphill-specific tickets or passes are required, and uphill travel is only allowed on specific days and times and on certain designated routes. Uphill guests must use skis or splitboards; hiking on foot or with snowshoes is not allowed.
As an added benefit, Uphill Access Pass holders are allowed early access to uphill routes from 7:00 AM–9:00 AM, Mon/Tue/Thu during the winter season.
Eldora season passes are the best way to get the most skiing for the most value.
Unbeatable proximity: Eldora is conveniently located just 21 miles from downtown Boulder and less than 50 miles from Denver.
