“Conditions are great,” said Powderhorn’s spokesman Dave Smith. “I had a great time and enjoyed some fresh powder.”

ABOUT THE MOUNTAIN

Powderhorn Mountain Resort is located on Colorado’s Grand Mesa, about an hour from the center of Grand Junction, or 40 miles east. It offers 1,600 acres of skiable terrain, 63 trails, five lifts, and three terrain parks. The base elevation is 8,200 ft., with a summit elevation of 9,850 ft.

Powderhorn also features other amenities, like indoor and outdoor seating with views of the ski area, West End BBQ & Bar, Sunset Grill & Bar, live music, a bag jump, a tubing hill, Powderhorn Racing Club and more.

Adult season passes cost $545. P-Cards, which cover a first day of skiing plus 20 percent off subsequent days, cost $58.

LEARN TO SKI OR RIDE

Powderhorn Mountain Resort’s new “Learn to Ski or Snowboard Series” allows first-time skiers or riders the opportunity to slide Grand Mesa’s slopes three times for $149. That price includes full-day lessons, lift tickets and equipment for any three days of the season. The program spans all ages — 5 years old on up for ski lessons and 7 years old and up for snowboarding. Plus, after completion of all three lessons, the newly educated skier or boarder receives a non-transferable “Graduate Card,” which provides a 50-percent discount on all future lessons that season as well as lift tickets and gear rental.
