Powderhorn is actually surprising for quality riding. Not the steepest but typically is a ride on for fast laps and fun terrain. The park crew does pretty good for what they have to work with and the food is fair priced and pretty good. The pizza is the best and they have great ... More

It's a locals place and when I visit my son's family in Grand Junction I go there to have a swerve down their runs. Nice friendly place, and their chilli is great.

Big mountain skiing at local mountain prices. Short lift lines and great terrain keep everyone happy on a powder day. The west side lift is old and slow, but delivers the goods. Great
