Copper Mountain Owner Snaps Up Eldora Ski Area

Eldora Mountain Resort has been sold to Powdr Corporation, a Park City, Utah-based adventure-sports company. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The acquisition means Powdr will own and operate two Colorado ski resorts. It also owns Copper Mountain in Summit County.

Powdr said in a statement that the deal will not cause ski pass prices to change. The 1,200-acre resort is about 20 miles west of Boulder.

"Colorado’s front range is one of the best ski markets in the world. Expanding our footprint here with now two of the most accessible resorts to serve those passionate skiers is an enormous honor,” said John Cumming, CEO and owner of Powdr, in a statement sent to Denver7. “Eldora is admired as a leading entry point and training ground for children and beginners. We want to work hard for more people to join us in the adventure-filled world of snow sports.”
