Despite a dumping of new snow overnight, skiers hoping to carve down the slopes at Loveland Ski Area on Friday will have to go somewhere else.
“Power problems down line from the ski area” have closed the mountain for the day, Loveland said in a tweet. Xcel Energy is turning off power to address the issue, the ski area added.
Early Friday morning, Loveland tweeted a picture of a yardstick showing seven inches of fresh snow, with the headline “Power Day.”
Due to power problems down line from the ski area, XCEL Energy will turn off power to address the issues. Loveland will not reopen today. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to skiing with everyone tomorrow.
