After a dismal start to December with more grass than snow on the slopes, Powderhorn finally has enough of the white stuff to open this Saturday (December 20).

While there's still not enough snow to open the entire mountain, the resort is set to open the Take four Quad chairlift to midway and the Easy Rider chairlift to Lower Peacemaker and EZ runs.

Powderhorn Marketing Director Dave Smith says,

We are looking forward to another great season and are ready to get the chair lifts turning and people on the slopes! We did receive 6 – 10 inches of snow from the storm systems this past weekend and additional snowfall is forecast for the next few days.”

With limited terrain, Powderhorn is offering reduced ticket prices for opening weekend. Prices will return to regular rates when additional runs are able to open.

Opening weekend will also feature live entertainment and prizes to celebrate the start of the season at the resort.
