Eldora Mountain Resort has been purchased by Powdr Corporation.

Powdr owns Copper Mountain in Colorado, and seven other ski resorts out of state including Killington and  Bachelor Mountain.

The company is headquartered in Park City, Utah.

"Colorado’s front range is one of the best ski markets in the world. Expanding our footprint here with now two of the most accessible resorts to serve those passionate skiers is an enormous honor,” said John Cumming, CEO and owner of Powdr, in a statement sent to Denver7. “Eldora is admired as a leading entry point and training ground for children and beginners. We want to work hard for more people to join us in the adventure-filled world of snow sports.”

“I’ve had the privilege of knowing John Cumming for nearly 30 years,” said William Killebrew, previous owner of Eldora. “He has built a great adventure company and has the reputation as an outstanding operator. When we decided to consider selling Eldora, we wanted to put our resort in the best hands possible and Powdr was the first company that came to mind.”
