Rebranding Powderhorn

For the 2019/20 winter season, Powderhorn unveiled a new logo and rebranding initative to coincide with exciting upgrades coming to the resort. The rebrand was inspired by Powderhorn's original logo dating back to the 1960’s. Powderhorn's new icon recalls the resort's origins, taking the shape of a powder horn reversed from a mountain slope background. 

A powder horn is the horn of an ox, cow, or similar animal used to hold gunpowder. Powderhorn's original founders settled on a name and imagry that paid tribute to the resort's western roots and the light, dry powder snow unique to the area. 

For over 50 years, Powderhorn has continued to evolve and offer a memorable resort experience for new and returning guests.
