We skied at Eldora Mountain Resort and Saturdays weather could not have been better. Just a little overcast, a little colder than the previous weekend but nice.
On most runs we were able to ski right onto the lifts with little to no wait! The lift attendants always had a cheerful word and a smile.
I took both the kids up Sunday for their weekly ski lesson and what a difference a day makes. The temperature at the base was 12 degrees and there was wind blowing 30 to 40 mph. Snow was falling hard horizontally and visibility was at most 200 yards.
I was very impressed that Eldora's Ski School folks were gracious enough to allow us to reschedule another weekend with no penalty. Try that at another resort. Just another example of the great management, staff and attitude at this gem of a Colorado resort.

Eldora Mountain Resort has made skiing more affordable than ever offering their lodging partners a "Boulder Ski Escape" $ 39 discounted full day adult or $29 children's lift tickets. Lift tickets are $ 65 at the resort, that's a savings of $ 26 per adult!
If you're on the fence about a ski vacation this year due to the economy you should really consider Eldora Mountain Resort and the "Boulder Ski Escape" package. A Colorado ski vacation has never been more affordable.
Alps Boulder Canyon Inn and Boulderskiing.com, we're Boulder's closest lodging to Eldora's slopes, a great ski get-a-way and are offering the best ski package rates we've offered in years.

I was skeptical about the Technica Diablo boots, having always skied Solomon and Rossi's but honestly it's the first time in a long time my feet and calves have actually been comfortable for a full day of skiing. Really comfortable! After all these years I just didn't think that was possible. It looks like you'll be seeing my old boots on Craig's list.
As for the skis, I'll say it again. WOW! The technological improvements in ski equipment continue to amaze me. These skis were so easy to ski, I loved them.
As for the day, completely amazing! 40+ degrees, little to no wind, good snow, no people and no lines we skied right on the lifts. It was like the perfect day that everyone forgot to go skiing.
My wife Jeannine decided to take a lesson. Eldora's Ski School set her up with Gail Reichert. Gail's been instructing at Eldora since the 70's. Jeannine loved Gail and the personal instruction she got really helped her to perfect her skills and improve her self confidence. Thanks Gail.
I also want to thank Kristin and Rob with Eldora's marketing group for making this day possible along with our innkeeper Rachel who held down the fort back at the Alps Boulder Canyon Inn while Jeannine and I got out.
Well neadless to say Jeannine and I are both looking forward to sneaking out again to enjoy the great people and skiing at Eldora Mountain Resort.

If you're a little rusty, have never skied before or have children, Eldora Mountain Resort's ski school has a tremendous reputation and I will personally vouch for it. You should give it a try.
