We are excited to announce limited openings of the Eldora Nordic Center and uphill ski/snowboard access. Please read below for details and important updates regarding both openings.

Eldora Nordic Center – Opening Details

At 9:00 AM on Friday, January 1, the Eldora Nordic Center will open with a limited selection of groomed trails totaling approximately 10 kilometers. Please note that early Nordic access for season pass holders does not begin until January 5 (see below for details). Our efforts to open the Nordic Center had been hampered by a dearth of natural snowfall, but we’ve been able to compact enough over the past couple of weeks to facilitate opening on the first day of 2021. Yay! Snowshoe trails and Jenny Creek access will also open at this time. The following ski trails will be open and groomed:

  – 17th Avenue 

  – For Pete's Sake

  – Ja Sure 

  – Phoebe Loop

  – Meadows Loop

  – Snowcat

Nordic Lessons: There will be no Nordic lessons on Friday, 1/1/21. However, we WILL offer lessons on Saturday 1/2/21 and Sunday 1/3/21, and every day moving forward throughout the season. We are offering ONLY private lessons with pre-paid reservations. Guests interested in lessons should call the Nordic Center to book a lesson and rentals: 303-440-8700 x68510.

For up-to-date info on all things Nordic, please visit our Nordic Center page.

Eldora Uphill Access – Opening Details

At 9:00 AM on Tuesday, January 5, uphill access on Eldora’s Frontside Route will open for those with uphill-specific season passes and day tickets. Sorry, the Backside Routes are not yet open due to thin natural snow cover and active snowmaking and machinery movement. Uphill access routes are marked with yellow dotted lines on our Alpine Trail Map.*

Important: Uphill users must read and adhere to Eldora’s uphill policies as outlined on our Uphill Policies Page.

*ALERT: One section of the Frontside Route has been slightly relocated. Rather than crossing the unload zone of Caribou chairlift and below the first jump in the Sundance terrain park, the route has been moved slightly uphill and crosses Sundance above the first jump, before continuing across the Summer Road toward Jolly Jug. Please look carefully for signage and route markers in this area.

To book daytime access parking (9:00am, 11:00am, 1:30pm, or 2:30pm) visit our parking reservation page.

If you are a Nordic or Uphill Season Pass holder interested in learning how to request early-access parking (6:45am–8am) please email parkingservices@eldora.com and ask for instructions.
