With 510 acres of terrain and a vertical drop of 1,650 feet, Powderhorn offers slopes for beginners to experts. The 360,000 acres on top of the Grand Mesa is the site for miles of cross-country and some of the best snowmobiling in the world.

Snowboarders will have a blast at Powderhorn. There are 2 terrain parks located mid-mountain with numerous rails, a fun-box, hits, tabletops and areas for clinics & competition. During the season, snowboard clinics and competition are popular with the locals.
