Easy to Love

Loveland Ski Area is located within the Arapahoe National Forest, in close proximity to Georgetown (Colorado, U.S.). Loveland consists of two areas, namely Loveland Basin and Loveland Valley. Its lovely name comes from the nearby Loveland Pass-a high mountain pass located at an elevation of 11,990 feet (3,655 m). The resort is the second highest lift-served places in North America after Breckenridge (also Colorado), at 12,697 feet (3,879 m). Loveland is also known for being one of the first ski areas in the Rockies to open the ski season and to have less-expensive lift tickets.

Main Features

Love Basin contains most of the runs dedicated to experts, as well as eight of the ten chairlifts that provide access to the resort. The Loveland Valley, on the other hand, can be beginners’ first love, having several runs great for initiation.

Loveland is also the place where the largest and oldest ski race in North America happens. This amateur competition lasts for two days and it often includes racing in all kinds of costumes.
