Powderhorn, outside of Grand Junction, has a new restaurant on the mountain. The Skiers' Union Café & Bar is the new slopeside restaurant, formerly known as the Wildewood. The Skiers' Union used to be a favorite of locals and travelers in Telluride Mountain Village for many years. It was even featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show as having the best burger.
The menu includes their Ribeye Sirloin Fillet burgers, shaved Prime Rib Philly Cheesesteak, New York Pastrami and Corn Beef Reuben, Colorado Yak and Bison Burgers, and the Italian Sausage Meatball Parmesan Sandwish. A vegetarian menu is also offered along with nightly specials and a full service bar.
The Skiers' Union opens for the season Dec. 17 along with Powderhorn's other services. Hours are 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
