Powderhorn cuts back hours because of lack of snow

MESA, Colo. — A Colorado ski resort is cutting back its schedule because of a lack of snow.

Powderhorn Mountain Resort announced Sunday that it will only be open from Thursday to Sunday each week to make the best use of its less-than-average snowpack.

So far the resort on the northern edge of the Grand Mesa says it has received 45 inches of snow, almost 9 feet less than last season.

The resort will offer winter season pass holders a free summer pass.
