Even on the busiest day, you may only find one skier per two acres of terrain. Almost 3,000 acres is a traditional lift served resort with an abundance of groomed trails and powder runs. The remaining 5,000 acres is nirvana for powder hounds.
Newcomers sometimes missed the best runs for their level of skiing and shredding so a team of locals was recruited to share their knowledge. Guests may choose from a free orientation over groomed cruisers with a Mountain Host or a day with a Mountain Adventure Pro making fresh tracks through secret glades, chutes & open bowls. After a few runs with a Pro or Host, guests naturally feel part of the Powder Mountain family.
For those seeking a once in a lifetime adventure, Powder Mountain offers guided backcountry tours at amazingly affordable prices. This season an additional 1,000 acres of expert chutes and bowls has been added to the current 2,000+ acres of intermediate terrain used by the Snowcat Powder Expedition. The all-day snowcat adventure is limited to 20 guests a day in order to preserve the quality of the experience. Wolf Canyon, Powder Mountain's steepest & deepest backcountry, is now open to a limited number of guided tours as well.
