Panadero Ski Corporation is working hard to open Lift 4 and with it, access to 7 beginner and family-friendly runs with a truly affordable lift ticket price. To be able to open and provide the best experience possible we've identified the four critical areas below that need funding to return lift-served skiing to Cuchara Mountain Park.


Please tell us if you'd like to direct your donation to a specific area.


As we phase in our opening with Snow Cat Sled operations our goals are:

  • Develop rental and ski school program -> Working to make this a reality by the 2024/2025 ski season. 

  • Begin youth programs with local school districts and organizations to promote involvement in skiing/snowboarding and other forms of outdoor recreation. -> Panadero Ski Corporation will be hosting Huerfano County Youth SKi Day on March 22nd, 2024. We are accepting donations HERE.

  • Provide the best skiing/riding experience at a low cost -> Day Passes for Snow Cat Sled Skiing for 2023/2024 are $40/day and can be purchased HERE.

  • Expand hiking and biking trails -> Plans are being developed to build more cross country, mountain biking and hiking trails at the park.

Your generous donation will support our efforts to return skiing to Cuchara Mountain Park and further develop park amenities.
