Powderhorn Reviews & Tips (1)

Powderhorn is a laid back Colorado ski area. Never as crowded or hyped up as the state's Mega-Resorts. The powder can last for days after a storm and if you can ski advanced terrain, you'll very likely have it pretty much to yourself. I live in Breckenridge but get over there as much as I can. Beautiful views off the side of the Grand Mesa too!
