POWDERHORN MOUNTAIN RESORT ANNOUNCES FIRST SUMMER OPENING
 
MESA, Colo. (April 30, 2014) –Powderhorn Mountain Resort (PMR) announces the first summer opening in resort history, starting June 28, 2014.
 
PMR will kick off the summer season opener with the Powderhorn Mud Dash on June 28. The Mud Dash is a four mile adventure/obstacle race, run throughout the resort. The Mud Dash will be followed up that evening with the first series of Mountain Man Movie Nights, free to all families.

“We are excited to announce Powderhorn will now be open in the summer. We have a very strong and diverse line up of activities for people to choose from, and we always have really nice weather here in the summer so it gives all the Western Slope residents an excuse to come up enjoy the resort and get out of the heat,” said Mike Mathisen, Food and Beverage Manager at PMR.

PMR boasts temperatures that are ten to fifteen degrees cooler than the Grand Valley, and the activities will offer a relief to beat the heat. Along with all the activities that are scheduled, PMR will also be offering scenic chair lift rides, a disc golf course, trails for hiking and biking, and retail. The Sunset Grille will be open for food and beverage. Please note that no bikes may be taken on the chair lift. The chair lift, retail and the Sunset Grille will only operate on the weekend events.
