Eldora Mountain sets new bar: 2023-24 season to be the longest ever

Eldora Mountain made an exciting announcement on Sunday. Thanks to the heavy snowfall in March, the ski area will be extending its season for an extra week. This will be the longest ski season in the resort’s 62-year history. Originally, Eldora was supposed to close on April 14, but due to the overwhelming demand and the abundance of snow, the closing date has been rescheduled to April 21.

“March really treated us well in terms of snowfall and we want to keep sharing the bounty,” Eldora’s president and general manager Brent Tregaskis said. “With so much snow and so few people this time of year, the Eldora experience is better now than at any point earlier this winter.”
