Skiers, Boarders Head To Slopes After Big Storm
NEDERLAND, Colo. (AP) – Ski resorts closer to Denver and Boulder are busy after a storm dumped new snow along the Front Range but only brought a dusting to the central Colorado mountains.
Eldora Mountain Resort reported 31 inches of new snow from the storm that started Thursday night. The ski area west of Boulder said on its Facebook page around noon Saturday that its parking lots were full and to come back Sunday, but it later posted information about public transportation to the resort.
Snowboarder Marc Tapper has a season pass for resorts including Vail and Beaver Creek, but he and his cousin headed to Eldora on Saturday after the big snow dump. Tapper estimates there were 200 people in line for the main lift from the base around 1:30 p.m.
