Powderhorn gears up for Margaritaville grand finale
Don’t be caught wasting away in the Grand Valley this weekend.
Head up to Powderhorn Mountain Resort with your favorite flowered shirt or grass skirt and enjoy the last days of the resort’s season during the Margaritaville Weekend festivities on Saturday and Sunday, March 29–30.
Saturday’s highlight is the Strider Adventure Zone that will give kids ages 18 months and older the opportunity to test ride a Strider with skis on the wheels. According to a post at powderhorn.com, kids can explore “unique terrain and obstacles,” “improve bike handling skills and further develop balance, control, motor skills and confidence.”
The Strider Adventure Zone hours will go from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 29, and cost is $2 for the entire day. The Strider Snow Cup Racing will follow from 2–4 p.m.
Also set for Saturday is the extreme course boardercross race complete with embankments and jumps for skiers and snowboarders. Cost is $5 and registration will be from 8:30–10 a.m. at the Ski & Ride Desk. The race starts at 11 a.m. with age groups ranging from 10 and younger, up to age 34.
Jack+Jill will provide music entertainment from 3–6 p.m. Saturday.
The Sunday, March 30, activities will begin with the Slush Sprocket Mountain Bike Race at 10 a.m. Participants will ride a bicycle on Bill’s Run from top to bottom, around gates and through banks.
Cost is $59 per competitor. There will be three age categories, with a limited of 100 competitors. Helmets are required and no additional traction can be added to tires (i.e. spikes, studs, chains). Register at Active.com.
The popular pond skim — sure to be a splash — will go from 4:30–6 p.m. Sunday. Space is limited to 45 skimmers. Register by calling the Ski & Ride Center, 268-5700, ext. 2080.
