Powderhorn sits on the western edge of the mighty Grand Mesa, not much more than an hour from the Utah border. With a summit elevation of 9850 feet it's not lofty by Colorado measure, but the semi-arid climate ensures dry powder, some 250" of it a year. The resort's 1650 vertical feet and 600 total acres are an intermediate's dream: 50% of the terrain is blue. Another 20% is green, which helps cement Powderhorn's reputation as a great place to learn.
