Loveland Ski Area delays opening Wednesday due to wind-related power outages

Loveland Ski Area delayed its opening on Wednesday as crews work to restore power after high winds caused outages throughout the resort.

Spokesperson Dustin Schaefer said he doesn’t know when the ski area might open today. Power outages are affecting all operations, including lifts.

“It’s all up in the air,” Schaefer said. “Hopefully things work out and we can get the lifts running and people skiing and snowboarding.”

On Tuesday, Loveland Ski Area remained closed because of dangerously high winds, as did Echo Mountain. Wind also affected some lifts at Arapahoe Basin.

A-Basin spokesperson Katherine Fuller said the ski area opened on time Wednesday and frontside lifts, including Black Mountain Express, Molly Hogan and Pallavicini, are all turning. However, she expects the uppermost part of the mountain to remain closed.

Schaefer said the best place to monitor updates is on Loveland’s Twitter page. We’ll also update this story as more information becomes available.
