Uphill Access Update
In response to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak, Loveland Ski Area and the U.S. Forest Service will be prohibiting uphill access to National Forest System lands operated by Loveland Ski Area for a period of time that matches Governor Polis’ Executive Order 2020 004 and any subsequent amendments extending that timeframe. This closure will start at 12:01am on Wednesday, March 25.
Loveland Ski Area encourages guest use of public lands and supports uphill access throughout the ski season. To honor the intent and language of the executive order and other state direction on minimizing group size, as well as meeting the needs of local law enforcement and emergency service providers, Loveland Ski Area will prohibit uphill access. While the ski area can limit uphill access through its existing operating plan on a temporary basis for management activities such as end-of-season tear down or emergency management situations, it is submitting this operating plan amendment given the significance and timing of the COVID-19 outbreak and the predicted length of this prohibition.
