The leaves have fallen, and the snow is upon us. In Golden Colorado, winter is a magical time. The snow covers the trees and dusts the ground creating a winter wonderland. The snow also produces some of the best outdoor activities. In Colorado, we can not wait for the snow because it opens the door to new adventures. You can go skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and so much more. At Eldora CO Lodge, we are ready to explore the new world full of snow and then come back and cozy up to the wood burning fireplace. We have the comfort you need to warm up this winter after you discover all that winter has to offer.
Eldora Ski Resort is located in the southwest corner of Boulder near the community of Eldora. Eldora Ski Resort is smaller than some of the bigger resorts in Colorado, but the terrain offers a variety of challenging slopes. There are beginner friendly runs on Little Hawk Mountain and intermediate and advanced trails on Challenge Mountain through the Indian Peaks. The Expert terrain is in Corona Bowl which varies from 45 to 70 perfect slopes. The resort also offers cross-country ski trails and snowshoeing trails. There are also lessons and rentals available. The opening day is November 17th so get ready and start planning your winter getaway.
Many of the summer hiking trails turn into great spots to snowshoe in the winter time. Colorado is full of snowshoeing trails, with most of the best trails being located in our national parks and forests. One of the favorite trails is the Lookout Mountain Nature Center. The path is 1.5 miles, perfect for both snowshoers and cross-country skiers. The Golden Gate Canyon State Park is another excellent location for both beginners and experts who want to explore the scenic vistas across 12 trials. If you can walk, you can snowshoe. Shoehoes are lightweight so the whole family can get out and experience the winter wonderland.
If you are looking for something not as strenuous but still want to have fun in the snow, look no further than sledding. This is a great family activity with endless opportunities. With the different elevations, you can find steep inclines to bunny hills to go sledding. Golden’s parks and trails offer great sledding options for some fun in the snow.
