OPENING TODAY!

The call came in at 3am, we're going for it! So far the storm has dumped 10" on top and 6" at the lodge. Our settled base is 24". See snow report here.


Lift tickets will only be $30 today for adults, seniors and youth. All others are normal price (since it's cheaper).

PLEASE be careful driving up to the resort today. Roads are slick!

We do not recommend taking lessons today as beginner area is limited.

More terrain could open throughout the day as ski patrol assesses the coverage.

The high today is only 17 and more snow is expected, plan accordingly!

All mountain services are available, so make time to check out the new Trader Cafe or the new menu at the Wildewood Restaurant.

We're literally waking our employees up and calling them in. It's fair to say it will be a crazy day so please have patience! We have plenty of new employees that are about to get trail by fire!

See you on the slopes!

UPDATE: 12:30pm Equalizer is now open top to bottom. Snowing lightly off-and-on.
UPDATE: 1:30pm Looky Looky and Lower Maverick now open.

Is it possible to do the glades?

Powderhorn Resort said...

Glades are not open yet. Only what is posted on the snow report is open. Check back around 11am for updates!

Any word on what lift tickets are going to cost tomorrow?

Powderhorn Resort said...

Lift tickets will remain at $30 until the West End is able to open and we're offering more terrain.

Will Powderhorn also be laying off employees the same as Aspen due to the increasing ticket price? Aspen may be the first of many to loose season pass's being purchased due to the high increase.

Thank you for your input. Deciding where to ski is always a major decision.
