Powder Mountain Resort: What’s New for 2008?


Powder Mountain has long been one of the sleepiest, yet most appropriately-named resorts in Utah. With the legendary Powder Bus shuttling skiers out of Powder Country combined with a chill, laid-back attitude, PowMow is home to the best pure powder skiing in the state. And with over 5500 acres of skiable terrain, it’s the largest single ski area in the United States! Located 19 miles NE of Ogden and 55 miles from Salt Lake International, it’s a little more out of the way, but it is well worth the drive for the hometown feel and over 500 inches of annual dry Utah powder.

The hill is a little different than usual because the base area sits nearly at the top of the resort and you ski down from there–it really should be called the “summit area”. With the expansive acreage and 2500+ vertical, Powder Mountain is a definite “must ski” on your next Utah vacation.
