    i've never been! but they just posted this and i dig what they are putting down - only thing i wish they did here was limit the uphill to local county residents at least for now to discourage travel. impossible to enforce but would be a good thing to say.

    Loveland Ski Area

    In order to keep all our guests and employees safe and healthy, we have made the incredibly difficult decision to close for the 2019/20 season. This has not been easy for anyone, but it is the best way we can help stop the spread of COVID-19. We understand that there will be some frustration regarding our decision, but we feel strongly that this is best for everyone.

    We are communicating this information with our employees and providing scheduled seasonal Loveland Ski Area employees with up to three weeks of compensation beyond what has already been worked in addition to their seasonal bonus. Many employees will also have the opportunity to work additional hours in the coming weeks. All employees will be off this week and compensated during this closure.



    Any date specific products(lift tickets, rental packages, lessons) will be fully refunded. 2019/20 4-Pak tickets will be valid for the entire 2020/21 season. We are working on accommodations for 2019/20 season pass holders and will have more information in the coming weeks.

    The ski area will be closed and our call center and ticket office will be unstaffed through Sunday, March 22. We will be unable to process any refund requests until Monday, March 23. We thank you in advance for your patience.

    Now that we are closed for the season, the mountain is open for uphill access. Go to skiloveland.com/the-mountain/uphill-access/ for all the details. Please note that there will be no avalanche mitigation or emergency services. Uphill users must practice safe backcountry travel and use 911 for any emergencies.

    We appreciate your understanding during this difficult time and we look forward to skiing and snowboarding with everyone again next season.

    Possibly the final tally:

    1. 11/15 - Wachusett
    2. 11/21 - Wachusett
    3. 11/26 - Stratton
    4. 12/3 - Mt. Snow
    5. 12/5 - Wachusett
    6. 12/8 - Killington
    7. 1/21 - Sunday River
    8. 1/28 - Sunday River
    9. 2/9 - Snow King
    10. 2/10 - Jackson Hole
    11. 2/11 - Jackson Hole
    12. 2/12 - Jackson Hole
    13. 2/13 - Jackson Hole
    14. 2/14 - Jackson Hole
    15. 2/23 - Sugarloaf
    16. 2/24 - Sugarloaf
    17. 2/25 - Sugarloaf
    18. 3/2 - Killington
    19. 3/8 - Sugarbush
    20. 3/9 - Sugarbush/MRG
    21. 3/10 - Sugarbush
    22. 3/15 - Wachusett
    23. 3/17 - Waterville

    Cost per day after adding up passes and day tickets was $46.70 which wasn't great. Got the Ikon down to $38.69. Wachusett worked out to $75 a day...no pass there next year. Maybe a 3-peat for early season but no thanks. Bought 4 day tickets, all of which were warranted to me...$55 for a powder day at Mt. Snow in which they jackpotted in early December, $49 for a half day at Snow King which I thought was really cool (had to day ticket somewhere that trip for one day), $35 for a 2-4 ticket at MRG which is always worth the money, and $17 at Waterville because I was stubborn enough to get one more day but can't beat that price. After skiing 6 new areas last year, only one new this year. If the virus goes away somewhat quickly I could see myself getting a cheap flight to Denver and checking out A-Basin but highly unlikely. Maybe July skiing in New Jersey will be in the cards this year.

    I'm lucky enough to still be working uninterrupted by the virus so with nothing to do over the next few months I'll be able to save some money and vacation time this year. Therefore I may spoil myself with a combined Big Sky/Jackson trip next year. May also look for something to supplement the Ikon, whether it be VT 4-pass, Fox44, or maybe a pack for MRG or Magic. But didn't come close to using all the Ikon base days so who knows. Just hoping I don't lose motivation to ski midseason next year. After the great early December I just couldn't get myself to go other than a couple pity trips to SR. I was even dreading traveling west but it took about 30 seconds of JH to beat the fog out of my head and I was good to go. This sudden halt will be a great lesson to never take a season for granted. At least it hit during a lackluster spring instead of one of the last 2 Marches.

    Kusty....Thanks. I have never been to Copper but worst on the planet? Definitely no chance you will be featured on a Powdr website! Seriously thanks for the advice.

    Thanks Zand I appreciate the feedback. Less crowds goes a long way in my book.

    I got 37 days this season, the vast majority were solo weekday mornings at my local area, Mountain Creek. Also a bunch of weekend days at Mt. Peter with my family.

    I also did a spur of the moment trip to Bromley, with the family, for the weekend of 2/29-3/1. That was fun since I hadn't been there in about 8 years.

    I would have easily broke 40 days for the first time if it wasn't for the corona virus. If things normalize by summer I plan to try out Big Snow a couple times. We'll see.
