Big Powderhorn is good for beginners and families with smaller children. Our teenage snowboarders did not care for it as much as the other hills nearby.

My daughter and I skied here last week. It was very quiet and not many people there. The staff was great and the runs were well maintained. It has runs for all skill levels. We will come back next year.

Have skied all hills in the area and this is our favorite. Best groomed trails, friendly lift operators. Best lift operators are on lift 4 and 6. Don't get me wrong they are all great and helpful with little ones and newbies but 4 has best music and 6 has the cow bell. Thanks operators for the great season.

Ski patrol is wonderful. Thanks to Steve for getting my van unstuck and for all patrols that helped daughter when she feel on Ramrod and tore ACL.

Such a great hill we are looking for a place in the Village.

Once again you gave us a great season.

Awesome snow, great facility and excellent staff. Challenging terrain and the grooming is fantastic. I would recommend this hill to any family, or group looking for a great weekend.
