Black bears are on the loose at Powderhorn! I just had to write a press release regarding the closing of a lift due to bears. Weird.
There was actually one black bear just hanging out in the top of a tree right next to the lift. Not every day you can ride up a chairlift and see a bear at eye level.
We joked that maybe we could keep that half of the mountain open only to advanced skiers since they should be able to out-ski a bear. Or there’s always the old saying- I just have to ski faster than you!
