"We feel like that's a product we offer," Linde said.
Uphilling has grown in popularity over the last 10 years, and explosively in more recent years. The concept is simple: participants ski uphill instead of using a lift before cruising back down. Uphillers attach skins to their skis, allowing them to glide forward but not backward as they trudge up the hill.
"Very simply, it's trespassing so we certainly could get the law involved and the sheriff involved if there were some sort of an issue," Linde said. "Right now we ask the person to leave and respect the policy."
Some local uphill skiers wonder why Eldora hasn't gotten on board with the uphill movement that other resorts including Arapahoe Basin, Copper, Loveland, Winter Park, Aspen Snowmass, Vail, Crested Butte and Breckenridge are embracing. Liability concerns, safety and how to manage an uphill policy are holding Eldora back, Linde said.
areas just beyond the resort's boundaries at the top of the West Ridge trail.
Boulder skimo racer Ben Kadlec started skinning uphill after he discovered backcountry skiing, and found himself enjoying the aerobic workout of skinning up the mountain before shredding on the way down. Kadlec works as a software engineer with Microsoft, which means his uphilling time is limited to weekends when he can drive I 70.

Safety is the primary reason Eldora doesn't allow uphill traffic in bounds, spokesman Linde said. The risk of skier on skier collisions or skier on snowmobile collisions is too high, Linde said. He worried that opening the mountain to uphill skiers before lifts open, when the resort does most of its snowmaking, would be dangerous.
On dark mid week evenings in the winter, four skiers gather together at the Jenny Creek trailhead, just outside of Eldora Mountain Resort's private parking lot.
endurance athletes, from ski mountaineering racers to environmentalists who prefer human powered skiing.
"This is a trend that's happening in the industry right now, and we're certainly aware of that, it's just at this point we made the decision not to (allow uphill skiing)," Linde said.
Linde said nothing will change as far as uphill access on Jenny Creek Trail goes, though he added resort officials "haven't gotten there yet." There's currently no timeline for when the expansion will begin, Linde said.
across the area that includes Jenny Creek Trail.
Many ski resorts have embraced this new wave of uphilling snow sport enthusiasts and have developed policies that allow the sport within resort boundaries.
Scarpa North America's CEO Kim Miller said the uphill movement started as a "low key groundswell" and has become "mainstream."
He pointed out that skiers can access the Jenny Creek Trail, which begins just outside the Eldora parking lot, and can access backcountry Prada Sunglasses Spr
But getting to those areas without crossing into Eldora is challenging. To access the backcountry area at the top of West Ridge, a skier has to take a lift to the top. Forest Service description of the Jenny Creek Trail states that, "This trail crosses private land and is not open for use when Eldora Mountain Resort is closed to the public." The first mile or so of the trail sits on private property, owned by Eldora and other parties. Linde said the resort has an agreement with those private landowners that allows users to cross private land to reach the Jenny Creek Trail, as long as they stay on the trail.
Pete Fox, Sara and Ben Kadlec, and Travis Scheefer all wear headlamps and put carpet like skins on their skis as they prepare to ski uphill no lifts along the trail. Fox and the Kadlecs are ski mountaineering ("skimo") racers; they race both up the hill and back down. Scheefer is a former skimo racer who skis to stay in shape for mountain biking. All of them try to ski this way once or twice mid week and both days of each weekend.
The 680 acre ski area plans to adjust its boundary by adding about 90 acres of new terrain, according to the 2011 Eldora Master Development Plan. The plan also includes adding a new Jolly Jug lift, which means expanding Prada Velvet Purse
Linde, who's tried skinning uphill before, said the resort's Nordic area provides many of the same benefits as uphilling. Skiers can access Nordic trails before the lifts open if they have a season pass and sign a waiver.
Eldora has no plans to change the "no uphill traffic" policy in the short term, but Linde added that resort officials "explore new opportunities all the time."
But Eldora, a 45 minute drive from Boulder, doesn't allow uphill access within resort boundaries, said spokesman Rob Linde.

"There have been a lot of high profile avalanche accidents in the last couple years, but people enjoy skiing under their own power," he said. "If you can skin at a resort, it's a lot safer. There's been a Prada Bag With Chain Strap lot of interest in town here and a need for people to safely practice it."Sarah and Ben Kadlec ski uphill onto the Jenny Creek Trail while uphilling, skiing uphill, on March 7 at Eldora Mountain Resort.
"It's going off all over, and all the resorts that have embraced it have found it to be pretty low impact," said Kim Miller, of Boulder. Miller is the CEO of Scarpa North America, a maker of skiing and climbing gear. "You've got the lifestyle, the environment. You've got the participants and the right demographic, and now we need the access to do it."
Right now, the resort has a "firm policy" that prohibits uphill traffic within resort boundaries, Linde said.
Many resorts charge a small fee and require skiers to sign waivers. In return, uphillers get restrooms, groomed runs, resort staff nearby for safety and easy access before or after work.
