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 certain designated routes. Uphill guests must use skis or splitboards; hiking on foot or with snowshoes is not allowed. 

Before purchasing uphill tickets or passes or uphilling at Eldora, please visit our Uphill Access Policies page and familiarize yourself with the parameters of Eldora’s uphill access program. 

Uphill Season Passes and Add-on Passes may be purchased online in advance. Uphill day tickets must be purchased in person at an Eldora ticket counter during business hours. 




If you are a 2019/20 season or multi-day passholder, we thank you for your business. Given the impact COVID-19 has had on the 2019/20 season, we are pleased to offer you a renewal voucher for use toward any 2020/21 Season Pass or Multi-Day Pass product. For more information, please visit our Passholder Promise page.




As part of a multi-part solution to tackle traffic congestion, Boulder County has required Eldora to institute a $10 parking fee for single-occupancy vehicles (SOVs) arriving at Eldora on weekends and holidays, as well as weekdays that see 10 or more inches of new snow. Eldora will not charge vehicles with two or more riders at any time, nor will it charge any vehicle at all on non-holiday weekdays that do not see 10+ inches of snow. Prior to the start of the 20/21 winter season, Eldora is planning to make available a limited number of $99 SOV season parking passes, with details to be announced prior to opening day. These SOV season parking passes will NOT provide reserved parking, nor will they provide ingress to the resort in the event of access-road closures due to full parking lots.
