Situated deep in the heart of the world’s largest flattop mountain, the Grand Mesa, Powderhorn is one of Colorado’s best-kept secrets, offering a stress-free and relaxing mountain experience. With a summit elevation of 9,850 feet, a vertical drop of 1,650 feet, two half pipes and 1,600 acres of beginner, intermediate and expert terrain to choose from, Powderhorn’s stats hold their own against many of the more well-known resorts in the Rocky Mountains. After a great day on the mountain, those taking a Powderhorn ski vacation enjoy a variety of convenient lodging options, all virtually right on the slopes.
For those interested in mixing time on the skiing and riding with dining and nightlife, consider staying in nearby Grand Junction.
