Visit Loveland Like a Local
We wanted to gather all our knowledge on Loveland, so that you can have the best experience skiing or snowboarding without running into problems. So here's our advice:
Get to the mountain EARLY. Even though you're just thirty minutes away, leaving late means you WILL hit traffic up I-70. It is key to leave the cabin by 7 AM, because traffic WILL be a hassle if you leave later.
Get the BEST parking. Loveland makes you pull up and park in a line one by one, so again - the secret is to get there early to get a front row spot. Even if you're not the first on the mountain, you'll want your car closest to the front.
Next, pack some snacks. There is no way around the resort prices, the food is expensive. We recommend skiing with a camelback backpack, and stuffing a few granola bars and on the go items in. That way, you can eat quickly in-between runs, and not unbuckle, and have to hike up the stairs and into the expensive places to eat.
Another tip, is to familiarize yourself with the mountain. The best part is, Loveland isn't overwhelmingly large, so it will be easy to navigate. It's best to have a map with you just incase, but for the most part, we suggest skiing all the way down to the bottom if you're a little lost.
Need to rent equipment? DO NOT rent at Loveland, there are plenty of discount rentals between the cabin and the ski area. We suggest any of the ones off I-70, because it is guaranteed to be your cheaper option.
