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.

The annual snowfall is roughly speaking average at this ski mountain. The white snow here turns incredibly deep, 21 feet every winter, and that is ample for incredibly perfect depth. Powderhorn has a decent variety of trails and quite few ski lifts. Having such a full-size skiable territory, 1,600 acres in all lacking
    skiing territory wonít happen. This ski resort has 4 lifts, and they are in glorious condition. This is an average size ski hill in possession of a medium elevation difference if compared to other US Rockies ski mountains. The skiing
and the snowboarding in Colorado is scores of fun all winter long. Powderhorn has a much lower than average percentage of hard trails and a much higher than average percentage of green and blue trails. This ski area has a tremendous selection of trails to suit all abilities; it's totally impossible to get bored here. All in all there are 44 runs to choose from; it's a glorious diversity. Powderhorn has the largest drop among ski mountains in a 59 mile radius.  
Some people prefer skiing and some snowboarding, either way, in this general area, you'll run into scores of ski areas. This ski area has a height difference of 1,650 feet; Powderhorn makes excellent use of it. This is a family friendly ski area with loads of easy trails. A wonderful workout and a chance to spend some time in nature will have you returning for more. In wintertime the Colorado mountains are something you canít leave out in the event that you're keen on skiing or snowboarding. The wonderful mountain vista of Colorado and the especially tremendous ski runs are tremendous attractions for loads of snow folks.
