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.
