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 2012, it changed hands again and became a private ski race training facility. After solely focusing on ski racing for several years, the owners decided to open to the public in 2015. Unfortunately, a successful year wasn't enough to cover the high costs of operating a ski resort and it fell into bankruptcy in February of 2016.
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. The new owners are working hard to create an unprecedented personal experience and tap into Echo Mountain's great potential.
The 2017-2018 season was an exciting one for Echo Mountain with the addition of a conveyor in the beginner area, improved glading on the west side and some delicious new food and beverage options.
The 2018-2019 season looks to be the best one yet with some big new improvements and additions. Keep an eye out for more details soon!
