Powderhorn selects name for new lift

Powderhorn Mountain Resort has named a new lift under construction at the resort the Flat Top Flyer.

The name was selected as the winner from among more than 200 comments posted on Facebook as part of a contest.

“We definitely felt that Flat Top Flyer was a name that was specific to Powderhorn and had special significance. We’re the only ski resort on the world’s largest flat top mountain,” said Dusti Reimer, a Powderhorn spokeswoman.

Eric Yonts, who suggested the winning name, received a pass to The Mud, The Bands and The Beers Festival and will receive the first chair lift ride on opening day in December.
