Great tree skiing that allows you to find many variables lines from tight tees all the way to open Boulder fields. It can be challenging trees on the west side where you must plan ahead constantly, or it can be mellow trees where you can surf with carelessness in the air!

Not the best snow always, but it's a decent small resort. They take advantage of being the only resort in the area, passes are overpriced. But it has great power when it snows.

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 place!

With the addition of the new ski lift (couple of season now) Powderhorn is a great ski area. We have had season passes for 5 seasons now and really enjoy it. Snow is great, the staff friendly and it’s close. Perfect hill for an adventure!

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.
