Powderhorn gets out of town for snowboard festival
Powderhorn Mountain Resort is heading east to bring riders and skiers west.
Long the favorite resort for Western Slope skiers and boarders, Powderhorn is joining Snowboard Colorado and other Colorado resorts Saturday for the premier “Snowboard on the Block” snowboarding film festival in Denver.
The goal, Powderhorn General Manager Daren Cole said, is to let Front Range riders and skiers know Colorado’s snow country doesn’t end in Summit County.
“This is the first time, at least under our ownership, that we’ve reached out of valley,” Cole said. “We wanted to get the Powderhorn name out there in front of the Front Range crowd and give them some great value opportunities with the Powderhorn Card.”
The “Snowboard on the Block” festival, featuring more than 25 snowboarding films and upwards of 20 bands performing on indoor and outdoor stages, will spread across three blocks in downtown Denver.
In addition to the films, music and special gear sales from some of Colorado’s hottest ski shops, the festival will include a skate demo, snowboard competition and photo gallery featuring some of the industry’s best on-snow photographers.
The Powderhorn Card costs $49 through Nov. 3 and gives the holder the first day of skiing or riding free with 20 percent discounts on additional lift-ticket purchases.
