Downhill Skiing & Snowboarding
Welcome to Powderhorn, Western Colorado's fun, friendly ski area. We're located 35 miles southeast of Grand Junction. You'll find runs you love for any skiing or boarding level -- from cruisin' on wide, gentle slopes to challenging trees and bumps. You won't find long lift lines or expensive lift tickets, either.
Wait until you ski our legendary Colorado powder -- we average over 250 inches a year! Even our mountain layout, which feeds into a central base area, is family-friendly.
