Loveland Pass (elevation 11990 ft/3655 m) is a high mountain pass in the Rocky Mountains in central Colorado in the United States. It is located on the continental divide in the Front Range west of Denver. U.S. Highway 6 traverses the pass, which is considered especially treacherous during winter months. The construction of the Eisenhower Tunnel in the 1970s allowed motorists on Interstate 70 to avoid crossing the pass directly. Trucks that cannot pass through the tunnel must still cross the pass on U.S. Highway 6. Loveland Ski Area is located at the eastern end of the pass.
