Well what can I say....the story hasn't changed! Still snowing like crazy. We're up to 16-17" in the last 24 hours. Tomorrow should be nothing short of amazing. Time to use a sick day!

It's snowing steadily right now and looks to continue off and on all week. If you can, get up here this week sometime. The snow is amazing and you'll have fresh tracks all over the place. If you're stuck at your desk all week, no worries, it'll still be nice and fluffy for you this weekend.
The month of March is known in Colorado as powder month...I don't want to jinx it...but maybe it's starting a little earlier this year?

The lift operators are those people you see sitting inside the shacks at each lift. These individuals are in total control of all operations of the lift. They control stops, slows, restarts, brake functions, and all safety features. They constantly monitor all aspects of the lift system. When the lift has been stopped, a phone call is made to the operator when the lift is cleared to start again.
Lift Operations has 3 levels of experience. Each level takes further testing, hours of experience, and in-depth knowledge of all functions & mechanics of the lift.
These folks work hard and serve a crucial role in the safety and experience of our guests. Give a "Lifty" a hug next time you are on the loading platform....ok, maybe just say thanks.

Bill’s Run used to be called Sidewinder.
The blue tower jib in Junction Park is the actual tower 16 from one of the original Powderhorn lifts installed in 1966.
Powderhorn employs about 250 people in the winter season.
There are bear dens near Redeye and Cannonball.
Whistle Pig is another name for Marmots who roam the base area in the summer… and often get inside the lodge.
Powderhorn has its own water plant that purifies water directly from mountain springs.
The Grand Mesa was referred to as Thunder Mountain by native Indian tribes.
Cow Camp is named after an actual old cow camp in that area. An old cabin structure sits on the side of that run but is only visible in the summer

Harold loved the Grand Mesa and everything it had to offer. If you ever stopped in Mesa Lakes Resort for lunch, chances are Harold chatted with you for quite some time and always made sure you were enjoying yourself. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Harvey family.
Thanks for everything Harold!
