Lifelong Learning: VinCO 2020
Powderhorn Mountain Resort sits right in our backyard here in Palisade, and our partnership is stronger than ever as we move into a new year! Talon wines can be found by the glass at the Powderhorn main lodge, as well as the deliciously warm Hot Apple Blossom mulled wine – the perfect way to end a day on the slopes. Powderhorn season pass holders can bring their pass into any one of our tasting rooms for a free mug of mulled wine or a free tasting flight of 5 wines. Not a season pass holder? Bring in your lift ticket within 48 hours to enjoy the same benefits! With Talon and St. Kathryn’s tasting rooms right off of I70, our parking lot makes a great shuttle point for carpools headed up the mountain; a free mug of toasty mulled wine on your way home is an added bonus to clearing ski traffic and parking congestion!
