Loveland Pass Main Line Road Shots

The main gut of Loveland Pass is skied a lot, since it requires no hiking and it drops you down to a natural hitchhiking spot. You can also leave cars down there to shuttle. Also called “road shots” and “road laps” and a number of other names that reference the fact that you can hit it directly from the road. Many people include The Short Laps when they’re talking about this zone. This is great intermediate ski terrain where you’ll find many features built up by dedicated shredders. Many people are out here without avalanche gear, but this is not recommended. On a big powder day, even something that gets skied a lot can slide.
