Full review

We had a great coupla days at Powderhorn. Arriving to find plenty of parking and a very pleasant and appealing lodge, we skied the best aspen groves ever, lots of bumps, some super-fast corduroy ... whatever you want.

Eats: the enormous sausage things with all the fixin's at the deck grill are IT! And be absolutely sure to stop at the "Blink Twice" in Mesa at least once. Awesome!

Slow lifts are a pain, but no crowds means you can clear the all-country-music/all-the-time zone before going mad.
