Spring Skiing and Riding at Loveland Ski Area Keeping "Cool

April 5, 2006



GEORGETOWN, Colo., (Loveland Press Release)—There is snow in the forecast for the next two days at Loveland Ski Area, but a chance at fresh turns is not the only reason people are heading up to Denver's closest ski area. Events, competitions, live music and spring sunshine will be luring the skiers and riders to the slopes throughout the month of April.

"We have something planed every weekend through April, said Duncan Maxwell, Events and Promotions Coordinator. "From live music, to the 3-Pin Grin Telemark Festival, to our popular Vert Alert Terrain Park Series, we have plenty of exciting events scheduled through the end of the season.

This month, live music is scheduled for every Saturday afternoon courtesy of the Coors Light Live Music Series and will feature acts such as Brad Poto and Oakhurst. The performances are scheduled to take place outside on the Basin Patio, next to the Rathskeller Bar, providing for relaxing afternoons and plenty of fun in the sun after a day of spring skiing or riding.

This Saturday, April 8, 2006 Loveland Ski Area will host the 10th annual 3-Pin Grin Telemark Festival and Freeskiing Terrain Classic. The event takes place on the black diamond run, Cat's Meow, under Chair One, and can be viewed from the base area of the mountain. Telemark competitors will race down a course compiled of gates, bumps, a jump and an uphill finish, all equaling an exciting event for competitors and spectators alike.

On Saturday, April 22, 2006 Loveland Ski Area will host the second competition of the Vert Alert Series, a terrain park competition growing in popularity each year since it's beginning just three years ago. The Vert Alert combines a slopestyle park competition with and informal rail jam in LOVE Park to make an event that is fun and rewarding for all ages and ability levels. Event sponsors Wahoo's Fish Taco and Mountain Dew will provide lunch on the mountain the day of the event.

"The Vert Alerts are very popular events, said Maxwell. "The second of the series in April is always well attended with awesome prizes to give away, including new skis and snowboards, and typically warm, sunny weather.

All of the spring events taking place at Loveland Ski Area provide an excellent opportunity for people to squeeze in a few more days before the end of the 2005-2006 season.

Loveland Ski Area is currently offering late season pricing valid every day through the scheduled closing on May 7, 2006. Late season full day adult tickets for guests ages 15-59 are $40 and tickets for children ages 6-14 are $20.
