Powderhorn Mountain Resort opened Saturday.

Dave Smith, with the ski resort, says Powderhorn had to delay its opening by 10 days because of above average temperatures and below average snowfall. 

"Just after we delayed it we did start to see some additional snowstorms bringing in natural snowfall, but it also brought in colder temperatures so our snow making crews were able to get out there and create as much snow as possible to get a good solid base down there," Smith says. "And Mother Nature continued to bring us more snow."
