Powderhorn visitation numbers down by nearly 25-percent

By  | 

GRAND MESA, Colo. Reports say visitation to Colorado’s ski resorts remained strong in January and February, despite unseasonably warm and dry weather at the beginning of the year.

However, Powderhorn is saying that they are expecting to see skier numbers up this month.

Due to Powderhorn's late opening in December and lack of natural snowfall, the resort is reporting overall skier numbers are down by 23-percent.

They are encouraged by the month of March, as visitation has been higher this month so far thanks in part by a much-needed three-foot snowfall during the first week of the month.

Powderhorn says that they have already begun to see spring break visitors from other areas, and expect more to arrive in the next few weeks - boosting their visitation numbers.

The resort says that right now they are still on track to close March 29th.
