Powderhorn ski resort has a few on-mountain accommodations, but many people stay in Grand Junction or the nearby town of Palisade.

Grand Junction Colorado Hotels

Grand Junction Colorado is a small city with a population of about 60,000 people. Grand Junction is 40 miles (63km) west of Powderhorn Resort, a drive that takes about 45 minutes.

On the main road coming into town are a plethora of inexpensive chain hotels and motels, or other inexpensive options such as the Mesa Inn.

Other Grand Junction Colorado hotels are more upscale yet still offer great value for money. One example is the Courtyard by Marriott. If you want to be in the thick of it, accommodations in the main street of Grand Junction include the Springhill Suites and Hampton Inn.

Palisade Lodging

Palisade is a small town east of Grand Junction, known for its peach orchards and the many wineries. Palisade is a little closer to Powderhorn ski resort (28 miles away) than Grand Junction and staying in Palisade is even more laidback than staying in Grand Junction.

The Wine Country Inn is the pick of the accommodations because it provides upscale lodging at a vineyard retreat at fantastic value for money. The Wine Country Inn overlooks the vines and Mt Garfield, a large desert style cliff. The hotels rooms are very spacious and well furnished, and the hotel offers lots of amenities. Wine tasting sessions in the afternoon are a highlight, as are the gorgeous appetizers and meals in the restaurant. The Powderhounds highly recommend a stay at the Wine Country Inn.

Powderhorn Condos – On-Mountain Accommodations

Powderhorn ski resort has a few on-mountain accommodations. The Powderhorn condos are well suited to families who want the convenience of easy access to the slopes, and don’t need any nightlife.

The Goldenwood Condos are located just a few minutes walk to the slopes. The condos are 1, 2, or 3 bedrooms, and are very reasonably priced.

The Slopeside Inn is located right next to the main quad chair lift, offering ski-in ski-out access. Accommodations include mini suites, queen suites, king suites, and a 2 bedroom condo (sleeps up to 10). The inn has a restaurant and bar on the second floor, and breakfast is included as part of the package.

There are also condos near the entrance gate to Powderhorn as well as nearby cabins.

Mesa Accommodations

The little town of Mesa is just a 5-10 minute drive from Powderhorn ski resort. If you want a really budget ski vacation, there’s a very basic motel in town. There’s not much else in town except for a little restaurant, a general store and a liquor store.
