December 14, 2016 – The last couple of days, you might have noticed some neat mountain views on the GJEP Instagram account. That’s because Sam Williams, general manager at Powderhorn Mountain Resort, is our December guest Instagrammer. Here’s an intro to Sam in his own words:

“I currently live at Powderhorn and I am a Western Colorado native. I chose to live in the Grand Valley and raise my family here because of all the outdoor recreational opportunities. I love skiing, mountain biking, hunting, fishing, climbing, rafting, hiking, backpacking, and camping. The best thing about living here is I can do all these things right out my backdoor. It’s the greatest base camp in the world!!”

It’s an exciting time at Powderhorn, as tomorrow marks the official opening day of the winter season. This year is also the 50th anniversary of the ski resort, a success story that was captured beautifully in this teaser by local film crew, Vitality Films.

Follow Sam all week long on Instagram to catch all the opening week fun – and check out The Daily Sentinel this Sunday for a special spotlight with Powderhorn’s Andy Daly.
