It may still be the middle of summer, but up here at Loveland Ski Area we have snow on our minds. This afternoon we test fired one of our new snow guns in anticipation for the temperatures to start dropping. Other guns are being put in position and the entire system is going through a series of tests so we are ready as soon as Mother Nature is. In addition to testing the snow guns, we are gearing up for our fall ski shows and pass sales events. Be sure to sign up for Loveland's E-Newsletter to be the first to get the announcement on season pass and 4-Pak pricing as well as dates and locations of where we will be selling them.
Saty tuned for updates and Think Snow!

Every season Loveland Ski Area starts making snow as soon as temperatures reach consistent lows, typically in late September. Snowmaking has several great benefits for our skiers and riders. First, we are able to open in Mid to Late October, making Loveland Ski Area consistently one of the first ski areas in the country to open. Second, you don’t have to bother with using your “old stuff” for our early season. Loveland opens with a minimum base of 18 inches and side-to-side, top to bottom coverage on our 1,000 vertical foot opening day run; those opening day adages didn’t start here! Last but certainly not least, Loveland’s 160 acres of snowmaking provides a solid base and something cold to stick to when the first of our 400 inches of natural snow begins to fall – no powdery snowflake is wasted at Loveland.

Loveland Ski Area would like to thank everyone for an amazing 08-09 Season! With above average snowfall, tons of great events and activities, and of course great skiing and riding, there is no better way to describe this past season other than epic. It is loyal Lovelander's like yourself that make this all possible, and everyone here thanks you and wishes you a fun filled summer.
