Powderhorn Mountain Resort is in western Colorado.

The Powderhorn Strider Snow Cup and Powderhorn Pond Skim events will be held Saturday, and general manager Sam Williams said Thursday it's unclear if the ski resort will remain open until its original closing day, March 29.

Williams says "we are going to do everything in our power to make it, but Mother Nature is certainly not cooperating."

Beginning Monday, the resort will operate on a day-to-day basis.

Powderhorn is about 20 miles east of Grand Junction.
