LOVELAND SKI AREA — At Loveland Ski Area’s third annual community blood drive, 69 units of blood were donated to save up to 207 lives, according to Vitalant, a nonprofit blood collection organization.

A total of 69 skiers, snowboarders and Loveland staff members came out to donate blood at the Vitalant Blood Centers set up at the ski area Monday, Jan. 6. Loveland gave everyone who donated blood a free lift ticket for the 2019-20 season and plans to continue the new blood drive event next year.
