Open Season

It's officially ski season in Colorado! With Loveland opening yesterday and A-Basin opening tomorrow, the state is off to an early start. As I type this, it's spitting snow outside here at Powderhorn. The season will be here before we know it! This is cause for great excitement, and total panic, for those of us on staff. We've got a lot to do before we fire up the lifts, but we're working hard because we want to ski soon, just like the rest of you.

Here's some of the things going on around the mountain-

The new restaurant managers are moving in and changing the Wildewood into the Skiers' Union Cafe & Bar.

All the signage around the resort is changing to reflect our new logo.

Season passes are being printed every day and Plus Cards are on sale.

Snowmaking equipment is being prepared and tested.

The Alpine Trader is unloading all the new winter gear.

New trail maps and other materials are being printed.

And we're staffing up soon! Job Fair is on Nov. 14 at the Base Lodge from 9am-noon. It's pretty dang fun being able to ski/ride at should give it a try!
