It’s that time of year again- there’s snow on the Mesa and it’s time to strap something awkward onto your feet and make it look good going down a steep, snowy slope!
Co-op participants may ski or snowboard, beginning their day with a two-hour lesson that starts at 10:30 AM, followed by unlimited skiing/riding after their lesson is over until the lifts close. Anyone who will be enjoying their very first time on skis or a snowboard MUST take a full-day lesson on January 11 in order to participate any of the following Mondays.
All participants must be 8 years and older, and register online with Powderhorn three days in advance. Registration information will be posted as it becomes available. We will share a free chaperone lift ticket/rental within the group each week via drawing. Please read all of the rules below.
