Echo Mountain announces preopening; no public opening date yet

DENVER ” Echo Mountain, a new ski and snowboard area dedicated to terrain park riders, said it will let buyers of its $99 Access Pass get a peek at the mountain March 4-5.

No public opening date has been announced.

The Access Pass, available online, is good for four visits to Echo Mountain at the former Squaw Pass ski area, about 35 miles west of Denver, plus future discounts on tickets, food and merchandise, the ski area said. Pass sales will be limited to 300.

Plans are for the hill to eventually be open Thursdays through Sundays until 9 p.m., with weekday tickets costing $25 and weekend tickets costing $35.

Colorado native Gerald Petitt, a Maryland-based hotelier, bought the ski area in 2002 for $700,000 and is investing about $4 million more for items like a secondhand lift, lights and lodge.

The park is opening for the season relatively late: Colorado ski resorts started opening for the season last fall.
