Loveland Ski Area is hoping for a delayed opening April 6 after high winds caused power outages throughout the resort. It also closed April 5 due to high winds that made operating lifts unsafe.

Update on April 6 at 12:31 p.m.: Loveland Ski Area to stay closed Wednesday due to wind-related power outages

Loveland Ski Area and Echo Mountain closed Tuesday, as high winds hindered operators’ ability to safely operate lifts.

A photo posted by Loveland on social media shows white-out conditions and winds gusts are predicted to continue throughout the day, according to both mountains’ announcements. However, the mountains expect to reopen Wednesday.

A spokesperson for Arapahoe Basin confirmed the ski area is open, but the Beavers, Pallavicini, and Montezuma lifts are on hold due to wind. The Lenawee lift is currently running at reduced speed and may close at some point due to wind, the spokesperson said.
