Skiing and Snowshoeing

The snow season on the Grand Mesa runs from late November to April. Enjoy day trips from Grand Junction, you can get up early, but still make a late afternoon tasting here at Whitewater Hill!

Cross Country: The Grand Valley Nordic Council (GMNC) is a community-supported, nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting fun and safe cross country skiing experiences on Grand Mesa for skiers of all ages and abilities. GMNC relies entirely on voluntary contributions and grants to fund trail grooming and maintenance operations.

Downhill: Powderhorn is one of the most family-friendly resorts you’ll find anywhere in the West. Tucked alongside the northern edge of Western Colorado’s beautiful Grand Mesa – the world’s largest flattop mountain – we offer breathtaking views and over 1,600 acres of mountain terrain. Powderhorn’s location provides over 250 inches of light powder snow each year, and 70% of our runs are beginner or intermediate, ideal for any family of skiers or snowboarders. This year, we implemented contactless, reusable RFID passes for easy, automated lift access!
