The announcement by the U.S. Forest Service has given a cause to celebrate on Thursday as it had approved the resort’s request to expand the ski area, adding 62 acres of new terrain in an area known as the Jolly Jug. The announcement came on just four days after the close of Eldora’s winter season.
The approval of project includes five new ski trails on Roosevelt National Forest land, amounting to approximately 27 acres of trails; 35 acres of tree and glade skiing, also either a four- or six-person high-speed lift, and additional snow-making capabilities.
Eldora general manager Brent Tregaskis said that it’s pretty exciting stuff. It’s been a long time coming.
