EDEN — Nordic Valley Ski Resort has new managers. 

Mountain Capital Partners announced Wednesday, April 18, that it has entered into an agreement with Skyline Mountain Base LLC to manage and operate the Eden ski resort. Skyline Mountain Base bought the resort in 2010. 

“We’re excited to add Nordic Valley to our family of ski resorts and begin working with the resort staff,” said James Coleman, managing partner of Mountain Capital Partners, in a press release. “Nordic Valley is a fantastic ski area and is consistent with our goals as a company of making skiing affordable to everyone in order to continue growing the sport.”

Mountain Capital Partners is based in Durango, Colorado, and operates several other ski resorts, including Purgatory Resort in Colorado, Sipapu Ski & Summer Resort in New Mexico, Pajarito Mountain in New Mexico and Hesperus Ski Area in Colorado. 

The 2018/2019 Nordic Valley season pass will be reduced to $299 for adults for the year, Coleman said in the release. The pass includes unlimited access with no blackout dates to Nordic Valley and the other Mountain Capital resorts. 

Established in 1968, Nordic Valley has provided families with affordable learn-to-ski options for decades. In June 2005, it was bought by the nearby Wolf Creek Golf Resort and its name was changed to Wolf Mountain. 

The resort’s name was changed back to Nordic Valley when Wolf Mountain Ski Resort LLC declared bankruptcy in 2010 and Skyline Mountain Base took over. 

The mountain has 140 skiable acres, 23 trails, four lifts, a terrain park, and snowmaking that covers 60 percent of terrain. In the summer, there’s mountain biking, hiking, a disc golf course and a large waterslide.
