Echo Mountain

The closest ski area to Denver!

Echo Mountain is a small, family-run ski resort located in the Rocky Mountains just outside of Denver, Colorado. We are excited to teach everyone to ski and ride!

We are located 50 minutes from downtown Denver, just 20 minutes west of Evergreen and have incredible views of the Continental Divide. Enjoy a beautiful Colorado mountain vista around every turn driving just minutes from the front range. Watch the sun set over the divide as lights come alive in Idaho Springs and Central City.

About Echo Mountain

The ski area was originally open from 1960-1975 as Squaw Pass Ski Area and was a Denver family favorite as it was much closer to the front range than areas further into the mountains. When the Eisenhower Tunnel opened in 1973 ski areas on the west side of the Continental divide began to expand.

After closing in 1975, it changed ownership a couple of times and laid dormant until 2005 when it was resurrected as Echo Mountain Park with a sole focus on terrain parks. A few years into the concept, a Ski School was opened and Echo began targeting a broader customer base.

In October 2016, Echo Mountain changed ownership once again with a renewed vision for the area to broaden its appeal and offer a close, affordable option for snow sports and outdoors enthusiasts in Colorado's rapidly growing front range. As the new owners, we are working hard to create an unprecedented personal experience and tap into Echo Mountain's great potential. 

Our team is passionate about snow sports. We want to create memorable experiences for our guests by sharing our love and passion for skiing, snowboarding, and Colorado Mountains. We work hard and have a lot of fun doing it.
