(Loveland Ski Area, 8/6/2020) As we prepare for the upcoming ski season, we understand that you probably have a lot of questions about what this winter will look like at Loveland. While we have some answers for you, it will be a little while longer until we are able to work through everything.  At this point the only thing we can say with any certainty is that this season is going to be…different. Some changes will be very minor while others will be more impactful, but each will help us remain open for skiing and snowboarding.

We place the highest value on the health and safety of our guests and employees, and that will drive our decision making when it comes to the 2020/21 season. We expect to open on time and will do everything we can to safely stay open for the entire season. With your help, we believe this is possible.

Cleaning and sanitation efforts will be rigorous and more frequent. Social distancing and face coverings will be required in all indoor areas, base areas, lift mazes, on chairlifts, and on shuttle buses.  Chairlift capacities will be decreased as only related parties will be permitted to load together. There will be occupancy limitations in all indoor spaces and on shuttle buses. Ski & Ride School will operate at reduced capacities. We will work to conduct as many transactions as possible online prior to your arrival.

We will provide more updates as we get closer to the start of the season. In the meantime, we have just announced our 130 Day Guarantee for 2020/21 season pass products. Current season pass pricing is valid through December 1, 2020 so you have plenty of time to decide what is best for you and your family.

We will not be attending any off-site sales events or ski shows this fall. You will be able to get the best pricing on 2020/21 products online. 4-Pak pricing and information on other Loveland products will be announced in the coming weeks.

As skiers and snowboarders, we all want the opportunity to enjoy another full season. In order to make that happen, we all need to work together and hold one another accountable for our collective health and safety. Wear your mask. Wash your hands. Stay safe and please stay home if you are sick. We look forward to skiing and riding with you again soon.

130 Day Guarantee
Loveland Ski Area will guarantee 130 days of operation during the 2020/21 winter season. We will offer a prorated credit toward a 2021/22 season pass for lost operating days due to a mandated closure or a stay at home order related to COVID-19. Credit will not be offered for closures related to weather, mechanical, or electrical issues. Should a 2020/21 season pass not be used for any days during the 2020/21 winter season, a full credit for the purchase price of the unused pass may be used toward the purchase price of a 2021/22 season pass.

The Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests and Pawnee National Grassland released its draft decision on Friday, February 7 permitting Loveland Ski Area to offer guided snowcat skiing and snowboarding opportunities in Dry Gulch. The 580 acre area is adjacent to Loveland’s existing permit area north of Interstate 70.

“We are honored to partner with the US Forest Service to offer a unique guided backcountry skiing and snowboarding experience,” said Rob Goodell, COO of Loveland Ski Area. “This special use permit will allow us to expand opportunities for winter recreational use consistent with our 2017 Master Plan and the Forest Service mission.”

Under the expanded special use permit, Loveland Ski Area will be able to offer up to two guided trips per day into Dry Gulch with no more than 16 people on each trip. Snowcat operations will be limited to three designated routes. The area will remain open to the public for non-guided use.

A number of monitoring and mitigation requirements will be implemented to protect the area’s environment and natural resources. Among them are that snowcat use will require at least two feet of snow cover, tree removal will be prohibited, compacted snow/ice routes must be broken up at the end of the season, and water quality and fish populations in the area will be monitored to ensure there are no negative hydrological impacts of the permitted activities.

More information about the proposal, including the draft Decision Notice, Environmental Assessment, public comments, and other supporting documents, can be found online at https://www.fs.usda.gov/project/?project=54196. Publication of the draft Decision Notice in the Fort Collins Coloradoan on Friday, February 7 began a 45-day objection period, during which time those who commented on the proposal may file objections to the proposed activity or certain aspects of it.

[accordion_item title =”July 31, 2018 – Loveland’s New Lift Has A Name – CHET’S DREAM”]

The construction of  Loveland Ski Area’s new high-speed detachable quad from Leitner-Poma is well underway.  While there is still a lot of work to do before it is ready for Opening Day, thanks to some help from Terry Henningson, a Loveland Season Pass holder and former Ski Patroller, the new lift has a name.  The new lift will be called CHET’S DREAM in honor of Chester R. (Chet) Upham, Jr. (May 19, 1925 – January 24, 2008).

Not everyone can dream big, but Chet Upham could. From the beginning Chet had a vision for Loveland that transcended what others had seen.  Chet became a partner in Loveland Ski Tow Company in 1956 and immediately convinced the other partners it was time to install what would be Loveland’s first chairlift and only the third such lift in Colorado, Lift 1. While a major force in the formative years from 1956, it was when Chet bought out the other partners in 1972 that the true potential for Loveland was realized. From that day forward, the Upham Family has owned and operated Loveland Ski Area.

Chet’s dedication and love for the ski area were legendary. He invested both time and money to build an affordable ski experience and wanted everyone who came to Loveland to feel as though they were guests of the owners. One of his favorite quotes was “if we’d get a dime, we’d spend it on improvements up there (Loveland),” the Upham Family said. That philosophy continues today and Chet’s Dream endures.

A contest to name the new lift was opened to the public and Loveland received nearly three thousand entries. Loveland’s Board of Directors reviewed all the entries and selected Terry Henningson’s submission, Chet’s Dream.

“I was on Loveland’s Ski Patrol for a few years in the late nineties and had the pleasure of meeting Chet a few times,” said Terry Henningson. “Because he was so passionate and played such a big role in developing Loveland into what it is today, I thought that this would be an appropriate way to honor his legacy.”

Loveland Ski Area will provide Terry with a chair from the old Lift 1 for providing the name of the new lift.

With great pride and joy, the Upham Family and Loveland employees dedicate CHET’S  DREAM in memory of Chet Upham.

Loveland Ski Area is tentatively scheduled to start making snow in 59 days and open in mid/late October.

[accordion_item title =”September 25, 2017 – Loveland Ski Area Starts Snowmaking Operations for the 2017/18 Season”]

Loveland Ski Area took advantage of an early drop in temperatures last night and started making snow for the 2017/18 ski season. Loveland’s snowmaking team started making snow on Catwalk and Mambo off Lift 1 shortly after midnight this morning. Temperatures dropped as low as 22 degrees and the snowguns were still piling up the snow at 9:00am. The manmade flakes were a nice compliment to the four inches of snow the ski area received on Saturday, September 23. Loveland started making snow on October 4 last year.

“We have been eagerly watching the weather forecasts waiting for the right conditions to get started,” said Rob Goodell, director of business operations. “We had a productive first night and it looks like this cold weather will stick around for the rest of the week. We will continue to monitor the weather and will continue making snow as conditions permit. Every flake that hits the ground gets us that much closer to the start of another season.”

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 November 7.
