"We got 22 inches at top this past weekend, with 18 inches at the bottom."According to Michna, Powderhorn also started blowing snow Friday, Nov. 9, and the resort plans to maintain its snowpack levels with ongoing snow production."Last year we had some of the best snow in the state and we're absolutely hoping for another great year," she added.Though early-season pass prices officially ended Thursday, Nov. 15, passes will still be available for purchase. The new season price is $520. Still hoping to pick up Powderhorn passes this weekend?
