Preserving the Powder

Powder Mountain Resort is excited to announce the addition of two new lifts accessing over 1,000 acres of new terrain for the 2016-2017 winter season, pushing our lift accessible terrain total to 7970 and our total skiable acreage to 8464 making us the largest ski area in the US.  Mary’s Lift and Village Lift will access terrain previously accessible only by all day cat skiing adventures. “We strive to maintain the uncrowded, wide open, adventurous experience Pow Mow is known for.  By adding two new lifts and over 1,000 acres of new lift accessible terrain, capping ticket sales at 2,000 per day and establishing a limit of 3,000 season pass holders annually, we aim to keep our skier density less than 1 acre per skier.  Compare that with most other resorts in the region who routinely see skier densities in excess of 9 skiers per acre, it is easy to see that we are truly committed to Preserving the Pow!” said Mark Schroetel General Manager of Powder Mountain Resort. Schroetel added, "With a full price lift ticket price of $79, we truly offer all the terrain of the largest resorts in the country at half the price and a fraction of the crowd."  Utah based lift manufacturer SkyTrac will be installing the new lifts in Lefty’s Canyon and Mary’s Bowl with a scheduled completion in mid-December.

 

Powder Mountain offers a unique opportunity for skiers and riders of all levels to experience their personal adventure within our expansive boundaries.  Novice powder skiers and riders can easily dip into any of the powder stashes off our impeccably groomed trails with the knowledge they can return to the corduroy any time they want.

Intermediates and advanced powder fans can access true side country adventure via single ride cat on Lightning Ridge, Rain Tree and the newly added Lefty’s cat serviced terrain.

Those seeking a bit more adventure can opt for a full day snowcat expedition to Davenport, an area known for steep canyon descents and deep, untracked powder.

Green Initiatives

Powder Mountain is going 100% plastic water bottle free with the help of Mizu, who will be installing brand new water stations in every lodge to promote the use of refillable water bottles. Furthermore, Powder Mountain is pleased to help spread POW’s message to our guests. “Our snow comes from Mother Nature and we are 100% reliant on Her for our amazing powder.  We strongly believe in POW’s educational outreach and lobbying efforts to protect our most cherished resource” said Schroetel.
