Skied this past weekend at Powderhorn and hit the jackpot Sunday morning. 12" of new fluffy powder......they left the steeper slopes alone and groomed the greens so everyone had a great time. I watched some kids on double barrel and it looked they had as much fun falling in the snow as skiing it. No crowds all weekend, and the house near the hill I rented had an outdoor hot tub so it was a very nice time. The 6-1/2 hour drive from Chicago is worth the trip.
