If you’re over the age of retirement that phrase may bring visions of a shiny, red wagon or the haircut you wore in high school and if you spend your days shuffling kids to school and soccer practice you may be thinking Frisbees, kites or hula-hoops. But if your first thought on a cold winter morning is grabbing your board(s) and hitting the ski slopes, well then you will no doubt be heading to
Powderhorn Mountain Resort to check out the “Flat Top Flyer” on Colorado’s beautiful Grand Mesa. We’re talking about the new Poma high-speed quad chair lift that was installed this past summer and named in honor of the ski area’s location.
Tucked alongside the northern edge of Western Colorado's beautiful Grand Mesa, Powderhorn Mountain Resort is just a short drive from Cedaredge. It offers breathtaking views and over 1,600 acres of mountain terrain. Powderhorn is one of Colorado’s most down-to-earth ski resorts and it’s in this mountain range that some of the softest snow in the state falls. They average over 250 inches each winter and the ski resort prides itself on natural runs, long days and short lift lines. For the more fearless, tree skiing and powder runs are ample and uncrowded.
Regardless of your age or ability, they offer all levels of terrain, a full-service, professional Ski and Ride Center, rental equipment, base area dining, shopping, and lodging. It’s an easy day trip so spend an extra day on your next visit and check it out. For more information go to: www.powderhorn.com
