Location

Echo Mountain is Denver’s closest ski area. We are located 50 minutes from downtown Denver, and just 20 minutes west of Evergreen.

On your drive to Echo Mountain, you will enjoy a beautiful Colorado mountain vista around every turn. If you time it right, you can watch the sun set over the divide and see the lights across Idaho Springs, Central City, and the entire front range.

Directions

Option 1 (Recommended if coming from Denver / Front Range):

From Denver or the Front Range, take I-70 west towards Evergreen.

Take Exit 252 - CO-74 towards Evergreen Pkwy. heading south.

Take a right on CO-103 (aka Squaw Pass Road) and head west towards Mt. Evans for 12 miles.

On the right, at the end of our driveway is a big white and green sign that says, "Echo Mountain."

Head down the driveway and stay to the right (lower parking lot) for skiing and snowboarding, or left (upper parking lot) for tubing.


Option 2 (Best if coming from the west or from Idaho Springs):

From Idaho Springs Exit 240 - CO-103, head south on CO-103 for 20 miles past Echo Lake and Mt. Evans.

On the left, at the end of our driveway is a big white and green sign that says, "Echo Mountain."

Head down the driveway and stay to the right (lower parking lot) for skiing and snowboarding, or left (upper parking lot) for tubing.


Not Recommended in Winter - Option 3 (Gravel Road, Not Well-Maintained in Winter):

Many GPS systems, and sometimes Google Maps and Apple Maps, may route you from Idaho Springs on Miner St. to Little Bear Creek Rd.

This route is not recommended without 4WD and experience driving windy, gravel roads. During the winter, the County works to maintain this for local residents, however, we don't recommend guests take this route.
