Opinions On Powderhorn

Hey I'm planning on a trip to Powderhorn Resort in Colorado. I was wondering what everyone's opinion was on the place. Thanks Everyone!

Pretty much a family resort. Not much if any in the way of challenging terrain. It's one of those places that is not even on the list of ski areas in Colorado that I want to visit. I've got three left there. Sunlight, which isn't that far away is rumored to be better. Aspen is also within striking distance of Grand Junction for a day trip.

If you are staying in Olathe, go to Monarch if you are looking for cheap. Or Crested Butte or Telluride. I am 10 miles south of Olathe and those are the places I go. Monarch is cheaper and better than Powderhorn. Buy a 12 pack of coors and CB is buy one get one free lift tickets. I too have no interest in going to Powderhorn...I know peoplpe who go there and like it, but I have been spoiled by Telluride.
