The Skiing

Skiing tends to be a staple to any wintertime trip to Colorado. Eldora Lodge is located between downtown Golden and Boulder, Colorado, and is only a short drive from Eldora ski mountain. The mountain has two different trail maps. One for Nordic and one for Alpine. There are a number of diverse downhill slopes, along with groomed and ungroomed cross-country ski and snowshoe trails. There are over 30 miles of total trail all over the side of the mountain just waiting for you to explore it.

After a full day of skiing Eldora or exploring the various trails, a bit of apres ski is in order. Warm up at the Timbers Tap Room and Coffee with a hot gourmet coffee or tasty micro-brew until 5:00 pm daily. Enjoy views from higher up in elevation with The Lookout at Corona Bowl and indulge in some tasty dishes and a drink or two without needing to leave the mountain. For delicious Mexican style street tacos, stop in at Rustic Taco. Sit down for a hot meal of gourmet pizza and other dishes that will leave your taste buds singing. There is no shortage of tasty apres ski options for you to choose from for a meal for two.

Your Cozy Accommodations

The Eldora Lodge is only a short drive from Boulder and incredible winter activities. However, after being out and about all day with your honey, you will be more than ready to retire to a cabin-style room waiting just for you. You can cozy up with hot cocoa and snuggle in for a warm night in the beautiful Colorado mountains. When you wake up in the morning, you will be greeted by the breathtaking views out your window and a complimentary hot breakfast waiting for you in the lobby. You will be sure to have comfortable quarters for a memorable stay. So, this year ditch the tacky chocolate with roses. Get your love something you will both remember forever by taking them on a romantic ski trip for two with Eldora Lodge.
