SUBARU WINTERFEST BRINGS MUSIC, FOOD AND ADVENTURE TO ELDORA

SUBARU WINTERFEST BRINGS MUSIC, FOOD AND ADVENTURE TO NINE SKI RESORTS IN 2020

Eldora's official vehicle partner, Subaru of America, Inc., recently announced the return of Subaru WinterFest presented by Harman Kardon®, the automaker’s highly anticipated music and lifestyle tour offering one-of-a-kind experiences for winter warriors across the country.

Conditions Update + Pre-Holiday Turns

With 27” in the past 10 days, conditions at Eldora are FANTASTIC right now. We’ve opened tons of new terrain recently, with even more possible in the coming days. With one week left before the holidays, THIS IS THE WEEK to have the mountain to yourself before Holiday madness sets in. Call in sick or “work remotely,” we won't tell anyone.

Recap: Methodology, Presented by Vans

On Saturday, December 14th, 130 competitors arrived at Eldora mountain to try their luck at pro snowboarder Pat Moore's "Methodology, presented by Vans" speed and style event. This unique, nation-wide series, is designed for all ages and supports the prosperity of vital snowboarding communities and the lives of those in them.

Riders were greeted by free waffles from Vans, and an immaculately sculpted banked slalom course created by the Woodward Eldora terrain park staff—plus 5" of fresh snow—just to keep things interesting.

Skiing With Santa

C'mon up and take some turns with the big guy himself!

Santa is taking a short break from his holiday prep work to come ski his favorite local mountain. You'll just have to find him...he can be one elusive telemark skier, snowboarder, or alpine skier! He's magic, ya know.

Please note: Santa would normally love to hand out candy and take photos with guests, but won't be able to this winter due to local health and safety regulations. 

How Did Eldora Get its Name?

by Aaron Bible

Do you know the history of your home hill? 

When you’re skiing in places like Aspen or Stowe or Deer Valley, for example, often times the town and resort history is right in your face. But that’s not always the case with Eldora, which feels so close to Boulder and the Front Range it’s easy to forget the area’s fascinating and rustic mountain town roots, even if it’s not on the scale of some of the other ski areas you may use with your Ikon Pass.

Closer To You: Randy Newquist

Eldora’s Chief Water Systems Operator is Named Randy Newquist, But You Can Call him Squid

by Aaron Bible

Eldora's "Closer to You" series showcases the people who make the Eldora community so special.

When I pull up to Eldora, chief water operator Randy Newquist is chest-deep in Peterson Lake, the mountain’s main water source for snowmaking. Hopefully, he’ll be chest-deep in that water again this winter, when Eldora’s snowmaking team turns it into white gold.
