To all our great snowriding friends,
I've been writing this blog since 2006 with the intent to connect with Powderhorn guests. My goal has been to communicate openly with you, show you the "behind the scenes" work, get you excited to ski/ride and, hopefully, make you chuckle once in awhile. You are the reason we get to work in the ski industry. You're the reason Powderhorn is here.
I love this place. Our terrain is unmatched in Colorado. I hated skiing trees when I first started working here; now it's all I want to ski! We really do have the best glades of any resort I've skied. This is also such an incredible place for families. It makes me happy to see Moms & Dads zipping their kids into ski gear (only to have them ask to use the restroom) and taking them out on the hill. Powderhorn is a great place to learn this lifetime sport.
Well, change is inevitable though. While it can be scary, it's certainly good. Today is my last day at this wonderful mountain. I've accepted some change in my own life. But I'm confident that Powderhorn will continue to be THE gem of Western Colorado. And I'll be the first in line to buy a 2011-12 season pass, because I can never get enough of those glades.
Thank you for being such loyal, supportive and FUN friends of Powderhorn. I'll see you on the slopes!
p.s. The wonderful Kyle Pope will be posting news here periodically, so check back for updates.
