Loveland Ski Area announced on its social media channels mid-morning Friday that the ski area would remain closed for the day due to “power problems down line from the ski area.”

“XCEL Energy will turn off power to address the issues,” Loveland said in the social media statement. “Loveland will not reopen today. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to skiing with everyone tomorrow. Uphill access is closed for the day.”

Loveland is a ski area on the western edge of Clear Creek County. It’s one popular among Summit County locals, as it neighbors the county along the Continental Divide at Eisenhower Tunnel.

Both Summit and Clear Creek counties are in the middle of a multi-day forecast that predicts upward of a couple feet of snow may pile up through Monday morning. Loveland reported about seven inches of overnight snow on their snow-stake camera early Friday morning.
