Echo Mountain ski area in Clear Creek County, Colorado announced that it'll reopen to the public this December. The 226-acre ski area closed to the public in 2012 when it was purchased by Nora Pykkonen, who transformed it into a ski-racing training facility that focused on kids. By reopening, Pykkonen hopes that they can extend the ski hill’s hours and create more opportunities for ski training at the mountain.

Echo, which is about 40 miles west of Denver, has two runs and a 600-foot vertical. The terrain includes runs for every level of skier as well as a custom terrain park and beginner area for beginning skiers. A day pass is $49, an adult season pass is $159, and a family season pass is $395.
