Loveland is in­stalling its first high-speed lift for the 2018/19 sea­son. Lift 1, a fixed-grip triple, is be­ing re­placed with a new high-speed quad from Leit­nerPoma. Chet’s Dream, named af­ter long­time owner and oper­a­tor Ch­ester R. (Chet) Upham, Jr., will cut the ride time from the base area down from eight min­utes to just un­der three min­utes.


Just 53 miles west of Den­ver, Loveland has been a lo­cal fa­vorite for more than 80 years. With an av­er­age snow­fall of 422 inches each sea­son, af­ford­able ticket and pass op­tions, un­crowded slopes, free snow­cat shred­ding along the Con­ti­nen­tal Di­vide, and a laid-back lo­cal vibe that’s hard to find in Colorado, it’s no sur­prise why you see so many “I Heart Loveland” bumper stick­ers along the state’s Front Range. Ditch the crowds and the mega re­sorts for just a day in the high alpine, and find out why there’s more to love at Loveland.


Loveland has upped its game in the park the last few years through a part­ner­ship with Never Sum­mer. New fea­tures, more events, and a skilled, ded­i­cated staff keep the park fun and fresh ev­ery day of the sea­son.
