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. 

NOTE: 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. 




We want to provide our guests with certainty, so Eldora is automatically covering all multi-day pass and season-pass purchases with the 2021/22 COVID-19 Passholder Promise. Passholders receive this coverage automatically upon purchase.

ROLLOVER AVAILABLE:  You can opt to rollover 100% of the value of your 2021/22 pass to a 2022/23 pass of equal or greater value for any reason before Sept. 30, 2021.

IN SEASON COVERAGE: Qualifying passholders will receive a future use voucher if Eldora is closed because of COVID-19 for 21 days or more, or there is a 7 or more consecutive day COVID-19 related closure between December 13, 2021, and April 17, 2022.




  • Parking Reservations: At this time, Eldora does not anticipate requiring parking reservations for the 2021/22 Winter Season. However, the mountain will adjust policies as necessary in response to evolving pandemic circumstances and governmental health regulations.
  • New Single-Occupancy Vehicle (SOV) Fee: Boulder County is requiring Eldora to charge SOVs $10 per vehicle on Saturdays, Sundays, and holiday periods. SOVs will be parked in a designated SOV zone and fees collected will fund Eldora’s Sustainable Transportation Program, which provides free round-trip transportation to Eldora from Boulder on weekends and holidays.
