Are you dreaming of being on the ski slopes? There is nothing like it. You get a ride to the top of the mountain and get to have fun all the way down. This is where I learned to telemark ski and is my favorite local ski resort that just keeps getting better. That’s Eldora…. above Nederland and about a 40 min drive from Boulder Colorado down below. This is a great place to learn and also have a reasonable season pass too. There is even bus service from Boulder. Back in the day I would park my car at the canyon and hitch a ride with a sign that says Eldora on one side and Boulder on the other. Saved a lot on gas, those were the days!
Here are some facts about Eldora

Love the back side of this mountain. Now they are adding new high speed lifts and runs. One of our big skiing traditions was always A Basin in May. Shorts and Bikini and gourmet picnic wth Lobsters, clams, wine and cheese all packed in the snow. How about having this view on your walls to motivate you to get back on your skies or past memories gone by.
