Nice area for skiing when the snow is falling. This is a small resort with not too many green slopes, but for the adventurous you will have many options. There is a small food area and bar at the lodge. The outside deck is a great place to relax and enjoy the view. Overall the price is right with lift... More

The food is okay but somewhat pricey. But it is fun to sit out on the deck at a picnic table and look at the ski view. If you are hungry the BBQ options hit the spot, the beers are cold. And that is it.

I've been at Powderhorn for the last two days. There has been an exceptional amount of new snow, which is great. The terrain leaves a lot to be desired, and the food and drinks are very, very expensive. I paid more for a Coca Cola in Switzerland at a ski resort then I did here at Powderhorn. While I was...

We skied here during the week and pleasantly surprised with affordable lift tickets, no lift lines, an uncrowded parking lot and nice deck to sit on after our day. We usually ski in Telluride. This was the first time skiing at this resort. My only complaint was with the ski school. Although I made a reservation for a lesson, we... More

My daughters learned to ski here, and the friendly slopes and comfortable atmosphere make this our winter hang out. It's not Vail, and that is nice. No lift lines, No fashion show, No attitudes. Yes, fun, Yes nice weather, Yes on hanging out with family and friends. It is a smaller set of slopes, but we always have a good... More

Powderhorn may be small, but there is plenty of variety! This resort often has the best powder in Colorado! There are runs accessible to every ability. I learned to ski on these slopes, as has my daughter, and we both had the privilege of learning from many of the same instructors. There is a wonderful ski school and if you... More

I've always enjoyed Powderhorn, but the last few years, I have been disappointed to see the pricing continue to go up up up, while the dated, small lodge stays the same. It is so incredibly packed in there, there is really no place to go inside to warm up or rest. The grill is often overcrowded to the point of... More

My family goes here every year we can for a getaway weekend. It's so beautiful and relaxing, I don't even want to tell you about it because I don't want it to get crowded. Booking can be a little tedious because they seem to be working in 1994 instead if 2014, but it's worth being patient.

Aside from excellent skiing, Powderhorn offers lovely fall color viewing, lush forest hikes and the perfect place to hold weddings, or other family events. Formal or informal, you cannot beat their prices, scenery, service or food.

The resort has well maintained units and everything is provided to make your stay feel like home. No grocery shop close by. You have to either bring it from home or go shopping in Grand Junction about 40 minutes away.
