The center, or core, is where it all begins and where it all comes back to in the end. Over seventy years ago the founders of Loveland Ski Area discovered the core of great skiing in this mountain – an abundance of snow from October through May, varied terrain and a close, easy trip from the city of Denver. Loveland has stayed true to what the founders discovered and what current locals refuse to let go of – great skiing and riding. To us, the core of great skiing and riding is uncrowded slopes, short lift lines, free close-in parking and fresh tracks all day long and days after a storm hits. This is the essence of great Colorado skiing and riding. This is Core Colorado.
