How to Spring Ski at Powderhorn

Sorry, I have some not-so-exciting news: only 12 days left in the season at Powderhorn. I don't mean to depress you, it just means we should all be getting in as many turns as possible these next 12 days!

With 14" in the last week, the mountain is refreshed and skiing very nicely. Here are some suggestions on how to take on the mountain for perfect spring runs:

Head to the West End where the sun shines first. If it's a powder day, this is definitely the place to be with a huge variety of options- the glades, Mudslide, Sweet Misery or Bear Claw to name a few.

The shift in lift hours allow for really fun skiing in the afternoons. If you like carving, the groomed runs have been perfect between 1-4pm each day. Bill's Run, Redeye and Tenderfoot are among a few that are groomed regularly and perfect for big turns.

The terrain parks are also softened up by then and great for all ability levels. Link them all together for top to bottom park fun with some carving and side jibs along the way.

Last Run
I recommend hitting Wonderbump on your final run if skiing until 5pm. It'll still have sun on it and the views are amazing.

See you on the deck!

Do it all without selling a kidney. We just launched the 4 for $100 package. Grab some friends/family and spring ski for $25 apiece. Nice!
