Powderhorn Ski Resort--western Colorado's "Diamond-in-the-Rough"
If you haven't heard of Powderhorn Ski Resort, you aren't alone. Powderhorn has been known to locals of western Colorado for years, but has never achieved the legendary status of such places as Vail, Aspen, Breckenridge or Steamboat Springs and for the locals--THAT'S JUST FINE! Powderhorn Ski Resort was purchased in 2010 by the Gart brothers, Ken, Tom and John, along with former Vail executive Andy Daly. Since that time, Powderhorn has announced partnerships with Aspen Skiing Company, Steamboat Ski Resort and Telluride Ski Resort, added a high-speed-quad chairlift, constructed a new half pipe and increased their snowmaking capabilities--just to name a few improvements to the resort. With reasonable ticket prices, short lift lines, excellent annual snowfall, and incredible ski and snowboard terrain--this Colorado ski resort property puts you right at the doorstep to all of the ski and snowboard action.
Colorado ski resort property with access to excellent big-game hunting
Powderhorn Ski Resort is located in the Grand Mesa National Forest which encompasses 541 sq. miles of wilderness. Managed for high numbers of elk, 1 bull to every 4 cows, and mule deer make the big game hunting excellent in the area. A home or cabin on this ski resort property also would double nicely as a hunter's base camp. Imagine shooting a bull elk on the same slopes you ski on! The area is loaded with elk, mule deer, black bear and moose. With adjacent public land access, the Grand Mesa is also home to several hundred lakes and reservoirs for some high country trout fishing and hundreds of miles of biking trails, hiking trails and equestrian trails await your exploration. If you tried to find an equivalent Colorado ski resort property for sale in Telluride, Crested Butte, Vail or Beaver Creek--good luck. This is an incredible opportunity to own your piece of the Colorado lifestyle.
