Ski Areas > US Rocky Mountains > Powderhorn, Colorado




  Powderhorn is a relatively mellow and relaxed ski area, at least when I went. It was a very peaceful skiing experience. Says Danny Perez.

Powderhorn has a much lower than average share of red and black slopes and a much higher than average proportion of green and blue slopes. This is a normal size ski mountain having a vertical drop that's roughly average compared to other US Rockies ski hills. This ski area has 44 ski runs that you may ski on; there's
    a magnificent array to gratify everyone. Powderhorn has the largest elevation difference among ski hills in a 59 mile radius. Having such a full-size skiable area, 1,600 acres in all you will never be deficient in skiable terrain.
Powderhorn has a decent diversity of slopes and not many lifts. A magnificent workout and just hanging out with your skiing pals have ski people coming here. The annual snowfall is roughly average at this ski hill. Skiing and snowboarding in this part of the country is a lot of fun every day of the winter season. This ski mountain gets covered by so much snow, 21 feet per season, and that is an incredibly wonderful depth. There are 4 lifts here, and they are in nice  
shape. The 1,650 feet of drop from top to bottom is not that bad; it's enough to get some decent time on the ski slopes between lifts. Winter in the mountains of Colorado and the very magnificent ski slopes have skiers coming from near and far. Nothing outshines the Colorado hills in wintertime; they are a tremendous spot for skiing or snowboarding. No matter if you're skiing or snowboarding, there are scores of magnificent ski mountains for that around here. Powderhorn is a magnificent ski hill with scores of different trails; it won’t leave anyone bored. This is a magnificent ski hill for everyone with a heap of green and blue trails.
