Powderhorn celebrates 50th anniversary season with special insider’s experience at resort through the eyes of ski patrol
Powderhorn Mountain Resort has been serving up some of Colorado’s best tree skiing without the crowds on the beautiful Grand Mesa, just 45-minutes from Grand Junction and its airport, for 50 years now.
“Powderhorn is a hidden gem,” said Mistalynn Meyeraan, spokesperson for the Grand Junction Visitor & Convention Bureau. “Those who’ve visited know that they feature great snow, friendly staff and minimal lift lines. Add to that our incredibly reasonable lift ticket prices and the fact that we’re only 45 minutes from the amenities of Grand Junction, Colorado and you’ll understand why we’re a destination that should be visited to be fully appreciated.”
And this year, to celebrate the half-century of skiing, Powderhorn is offering a special insider’s experience at the resort through the eyes of the ski patrol. The Ski Patrol Ski Along experience can be booked on the mountain and allows you to ski with a professional Ski Patroller and learn some of the tools of the trade such as safety and transporting and caring for guests on the mountain.
“We’ve developed the “Ski Patrol Ski Along” program to serve as a local guide to educate guests of all ages about the roles of ski patrol and their importance to the resort,” said Ryan Robinson, Powderhorn’s marketing and sales manager. “Plus, this program allows our professional patrollers to become a mentor to others, while imparting knowledge for those looking to possibly work in the ski industry.”
There are two Ski Patrol Ski Along experience choices. The two-hour package is $75 per person; the four-hour package is $95 per person. For more information or to book, call 970-268-5158.
