We are excited to announce today that we will be using wind energy to offset the power used to run the Take Four and EZ Rider lifts. We've teamed up with Renewable Choice Energy out of Boulder and contracted for the next 3 years. The ski industry has made great strides in the last few years to help reduce our environmental impact. Powderhorn decided it was time to get serious to do our part. We depend on the enviroment to run our business and to enjoy the sport so we should definitely be doing what we can to preserve it. Following the lead of the Vails and Aspens of the world, Powderhorn is the first of the smaller resorts in Colorado (the Gems) to use renewable energy to offset a large portion of energy. Look for more information and details soon on the website and hear more about this story in the newspaper soon.
