They also had disc golf and ski lift rides going.
The resort experienced a recent change in management, and visitors say they are also noticing the changes.

"I think it means a lot to people that they can come out here and enjoy the fall foliage," said Gabrielle Michna, sales and marketing manager for Powderhorn Ski Resort.
Passes are now available for a discounted price of $439 until Nov. 15.
