Spring Break at Loveland

Loveland Ski Area, CO—Loveland Ski Area is known as the local’s ski area, particularly for Denver and the Front Range, but the lure of spring break skiing and riding in the Colorado Rockies stretches worldwide. This infamous reputation causes many skiers and riders to think holiday ski vacations are far beyond their budget but this couldn’t be further from the truth! Loveland Ski Area is currently offering March ski and stay packages starting at $150 a night, and beginning April 2, 2007 package prices will start at just $89 a night. These packages include one night lodging and two lift tickets.

“Our packages are great because they remain faithful to the Loveland philosophy of keeping things fair and simple,” said Kathryn Johnson, Marketing Manager. “We don’t set prices ‘based on double occupancy,’ we simply give you a room and two lift tickets. So a couple can come up and enjoy an evening and a day of skiing together, or an individual can ski two days in a row and relax in a nearby hotel in between.”

Guests have a choice of staying in one of two areas just 12 miles away from Loveland Ski Area. Georgetown, 12 miles east, is a historic mining town offering charming antique shops, great dining options and a relaxed pace you can only find in a small town. Summit County, 12 miles west, offers exciting activities, including outlet mall shopping, assorted dining options and plenty of night life for those people who are still awake after a day of skiing or riding.

Loveland Ski Area offers 1,365 acres of diverse terrain including a separate learning area for beginners. The Ridge, high atop the continental divide, serves up breathtaking views and some of the best open, steep and deep terrain in Colorado. Of course, there are many options for the intermediate skier too, including plenty of groomed runs excellent for cruising. There is no doubt Loveland offers wonderful terrain, but it’s the free parking, virtually no lift lines, affordable rates and laid back atmosphere that keep the local skiers and riders coming back and truly impress the seasoned spring break visitor.
