My friends and family have gone to Big Powderhorn twice a year since 1977. At that time the Old Lodge was still in existence. Every cashier, staff worker and maintenance were your friends. At that time Louie Geller was the Manager and what a great guy he was. Every time we would arrive at our particular chalet, we would find a fruit and cheese basket waiting for us! I do not ski anymore as I am 80, but now my grandchildren are being treated to the wonderful times of Big Powderhorn. May their children also be part of the Powderhorn history. My favorite eating place has always been Alpen Inn. This year (2016) I will be going to dinner or lunch again at the Alpen Inn. Can't say nothing has changed, as I still miss the Old Main Lodge, but time progresses and new is good.
