Overview

Nestled on the edge of the Grand Mesa, just 35 miles from Grand Junction, Powderhorn has exceptional views and skiing with a friendly personal atmosphere. In its unique location, where the desert meets the mountain, you’ll find red cliffs, canyon country and vineyards less than an hour away from the snowy slopes. This family resort is best known for its hassle free days and modern base area facilities. You won’t spend your day waiting in long lift lines. Skiers and snowboarders can enjoy 1,600 acres of skiable terrain that benefits from 250 inches of average annual snowfall. Powderhorn is proud of its groomed “corduroy” but there are plenty of challenging bumps and trees to play in too. Powder stashes can be found all day on Powderhorn’s uncrowded slopes. Guests can visit the Sunset Grille & Bar or Take Four Quad Grille for dining options and stay at the SlopeSide Hotel or Goldenwoods Condominiums at Powderhorn Resort
