I can't say enough praise for the Powderhorn staff this August for our wedding. I've been coming to Powderhorn for well over 25 years now, so I thought I knew what to expect. When we decided to have our wedding there, I didn't expect to be this blown out of the water. We had guest after guest coming up to... More

Its a great place to ski close to Grand Junction, perfect size mountain and can be challenging!! This place has some really nice condos to stay in during the winter, fall or summer. We have enjoyed it all year round and the views are nice.

Great place to ski when they have snow. Powderhorn is very close and an easy drive from Grand Junction. Its about 45 min. You ski the day and your back for dinner. Very fun little resort

This is a gem of a ski area. You won't find much "extreme" terrain but you can find untracked lines late into a powder day. Great for learners!

Apparently finally getting a high speed quad in 2016. Very popular for Grand Junction residents. Hidden and small. Great tree skiing. Friendly staff. Good ski lessons for kids.

I love Powderhorn no lift lines and a very friendly staff. There restaurant has a good food selection and the bar has some good beers. Now the resort is planning summer activities which will only make the resort better.

My 9 year-old granddaughter and 5 year-old grandson had the time of their lives here. She learned to snowboard and he learned to ski. The rates are much better than some of the ritzy slopes and it has a family feel to it. The instructors couldn't have been better. You can pack a picnic lunch or eat at their grill... More

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
