Loveland Ski Area will open for the 2016-2017 season on Thursday, November 10.
“The waiting game is finally over,” said Rob Goodell, director of business operations. “The persistent warm weather made things difficult this fall, but our snowmaking team has done an amazing job getting the mountain ready for opening day.”
Lift 1 will run from 9:00am until 4:00pm on Thursday and will offer skiers and riders access to one top-to-bottom run covered from tree-to-tree with an 18 inch base. The trails Catwalk, Mambo and Home Run make up this opening day run which is over a mile in length and nearly 1,000 vertical feet.
“We already have great coverage on most of the run and just have to put the finishing touches on the lower portion of Home Run,” continued Goodell. “While we are opening later than we had hoped, our opening day run will provide our guests with the exceptional early season snow they have come to expect at Loveland. We look forward to another long and snowy winter at Loveland and invite everyone to join us on Thursday to kick off the season.”
Loveland Ski Area opened on October 29 last season.

October 4, 2016 – Loveland Ski Area Begins Snowmaking for 2016/17 Season
Loveland Ski Area capitalized on the cold temperatures last night and started making snow for the 2016/17 ski season. Loveland’s snowmaking team started making snow on Catwalk and Mambo off Lift 1 at 10:00pm last night and the snowguns were still piling up little pieces of winter as of 1:00pm this afternoon. Not to be outdone, Mother Nature brought some friends to the party and covered the slopes with about an inch of natural snow. Flurries continue to fall at the ski area. Loveland started making snow on October 16 last year.
“We have been waiting all summer for this,” said Rob Goodell, director of business operations. “We are off to a great start and the conditions for the rest of the week look very promising. If the weather continues to cooperate we could kick off the season in the next ten to fourteen days. The race is on!”
It typically takes about two weeks for Loveland’s snowmakers to cover the opening day run from tree-to-tree with an 18 inch base. Last year Loveland Ski Area opened on October 29.

October 16, 2015 – Snowmaking Begins at Loveland Ski Area
After waiting out some unseasonably warm temperatures, Loveland’s snowmaking crew was finally able to start making snow for the 2015/16 season. The snow guns at the top of Lift 1 laid down the first flakes around 11:00pm last night and remained on through 7:15am this morning.
“It has been a long couple weeks waiting for the temperatures to cooperate,” said Rob Goodell, director of business operations. “Our crew has been on standby monitoring the weather waiting for the right time to get started and was ready to kick things off last night when the cold temperatures arrived. The forecast looks good and we will continue to make snow as conditions permit. Ski season is just a few short weeks away.”
It typically takes about two weeks for Loveland’s snow makers to cover the 1,000 foot vertical run from tree-to-tree with an 18 inch base for Opening Day. Last season Loveland opened on November 1.
