Eldora Mountain Resort
Description:

Eldora Mountain Resort offers supreme skiing, snowboarding, cross-country and snowshoeing. Located a short 21 miles from Boulder and 47 miles from downtown Denver, Eldora opened in 1962 and boasts a variety of terrain and a relaxed atmosphere. Its longest run is 3 miles. Eldora averages about 300 inches of snow per year and the best snowmaking in Colorado. Families can enjoy a variety of winter activities from downhill skiing and snowboarding to cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, or a day for the children at the Children's Center. For beginning skiers, Eldora offers a gentle rise serviced by Tenderfoot and Caribou lifts. And for cross-country fanatics, the Nordic Center has 40 km of marked and groomed trails. Eldora is easily accessed via Colorado Highway 119 -- no mountain passes, no I-70 traffic hassle.

Pros: avoid i70, great kid's programs

Cons: cold and windy, expensive for the size

it's great to be 1/2 hour from skiing...we spend more time here than anywhere else, and my daughter has learned to love the resort. when the weather is good, it's a blast

Pros: Location, Terrain park, tree skiing

Cons: Small, slow lifts

The best part of the this mountain is its location and close proximity to Boulder, CO.  If you live in the area it is a must to have a season pass and ski 3-4 times a week.  Eldo can be reached in about a half hour from downtown Boulder.  They made great strides in the terrain parks this year and the tree skiing in the many glades is great.  Only downside is the variety in the groomed runs as they do get a little old after so many days on the mountain every year.
