Powder Mountain Reviews & Tips (23)

Went here on 1/28 as part of my trip to explore a number of Utah classics. I really enjoyed PM as the terrain is endless and nice tree skiing. Compared to some other places the tree skiing felt just a notch above other resorts not too steep and good space in order to get a good groove going. Unfortunately, when I made my way to PowMo there had not been snow fall for over two weeks however amazingly with a bit of moderate hike (10 min +)and stubborn persistence I was able to trace down freshies (well freshies in the eye of the beholder..... untracked deep snow with a frozen crust on top through the fescue fields which fatty skies had no trouble cutting through....). This place is a bit of hike to get to if you are not staying locally but it is worth the drive as it will be just amazing after a big dump. Another big bonus is the Mountain host program they have - being my first time to PM I met two M hosts, Warren and his lady guide companion (sorry can't remember her name but very nice lady who worked in the hospital/insurance field), and they offered me to tag along and showed some good runs in order for me to get the feel for the place. They made all the difference for a fantastic day. I am sold on PM and will be back!

Nice mtn but lifts are SLOW & COLD, Always WINDY & COLD or FOGGY. If the sun is not out, do NOT go. Bus cost $9 round trip, .EXPENSIVE. Lodges are crowded.

Been going to Pow Mow for many years as a good friend supplies the stay. A few years ago the powder was the best I have ridden in 15 years! A bit crowded those few days as everyone seems to know where to go, but WOW, incredible riding and the bus trip back from the Back Country makes for a unique run. It's true when we say, don't talk about Powder Mountain but it is truly an incredible place!

Powder used to be the coolest little resort in the lower 48 when the Cobabe family owned and ran it !! It's been sold a few times since and it doesn't have the cool factor any more ! Powder used to be where all the locals went, not much locals any more, what used to be wide open is now all about the money. So all you powder whores can have at !

Awesome snow and terrain. Much better bargain than Snow Basin. If you feel like stepping back to 1974, check out the lodges. I don't need a foo-foo bathroom, but clean ones would be nice.

Went to PowMow 3 days out of an 8 day trip. The snow was great and I had 2 absolute hero days. Best runs ever and was able to get fresh turns at 3pm the day *after* a powder day. Best kept secret. You better keep it too. ;-)

Went to SLC for a week and visited Snowbasin,Snowbird,Park City and Powder MT. I must saw Powder MT made the trip. The MT terrain was awseome - lots of powder and lots,lots of riding to be had. I would recommend Powder MT to anyone. The trails, trees and open runs were very good. Not to many people - if you have not been add this to your list. The other resorts are nice - but if you want lots of room to have fun this is the place.

Powder moutain is vastly under rated. This is an excellent huge intermediate mountain with an amazing amount of terrain if you are willing to work for it. You can find pow here a week after a storm if you know where to go. This is truely a huge mountain with only a few lifts, which most people stick close to. If you take a short hike you will find untracked runs easily. Feels like a locals hill with old buildings and standard cafeteria fare for lunch, not a resort! This is a ski hill, enjoy it while you can!

They don't call it Powder Mountain for nothing! Snowboarded there February 25th and it was AWESOME. Lightly snowing in the am which turned into crazy storm after lunch. There was huge powder everywhere. Been coming here for years and Powder never disappoints. Bummed that Mountain Hosts aren't free anymore, but that can't last forever. With the snowcat and the helicopter plus maybe a snowmobile ride up to Lightning Ridge (if you work it right) you can't ask for more. It's hidden back in Wolf Creek and love that not that many people know about it.

Go there with a smile and buy someone a beer. Don't be afraid of the trees, because that's where the goods are. Don't be afraid of a little hiking, because that's where more goods are. It is not the steepest place, but 5 days after the last snowfall, you can still find some pow with a little bit of effort. Don't forget about the CAT too. I like the mellow old school attitude of the place and I will be back. Have fun!!!

On President's day weekend 2011, the best snow I've skied for a long time. A little crowded though. My favorite resort for relaxing powder, even better than Alta with comparable vertical drop. ;) Not steep, but big, wide open, always can find some untouched places, bowls, trees. If money not a issue, take cat-safari ($395 a day) or helicopter for more fresh powder. Or prepare to hike for more peaks. Cons: 1) not enough powder skis in rental shop, but a lot of regular narrow waist junk. That's stupid. It's a problem for almost all Utah resorts and rental shops - bad management, in my opinion. It's Utah - powder place! I'd like to demo pow skis! No excuse. 2) Sometimes big lines for cat skiing and shuttle buses from Powder Country slopes, if so - better use lifts for powder runs, not to waist time. Would come again for powder.

Skied Powder Mountain for the first time this year, having skied most of the other northern Utah resorts. This is my new favorite. The staff are friendly. The amenities are minimal--but that's not why I ski. The skiable terrain is HUGE and varied. Best of all, the powder never stops.

Powder is a well kept secret I would prefer to also keep it that way. I have skied nearly everything in Utah over the years, but this is my favorite. Don't come looking for amenities, as it is only for those who want to ski.

If you want a pretty lodge, gourmet lunch and fancy bathrooms, go check out Snow Basin - - please. If you want to ride untracked powder all day long till your legs can handle no more, come to Powder Mountain.

Untracked, light, powder a week after the last dump. No lift lines. Huge terrain. Boarder friendly lift/trail system. No other resort provides such a user friendly system which even includes back country access. What's not to love.

Powder is now on top of the list on All time favorite mountain. Rode Pow-mom on 1-13 and conditions were A+++. It snowed 4" ,four days before and there was untouched snow everywhere. We came from parkcity which was skied out by the afternoon. By the same storm. A must ski mountain if you enjoy great snow. Chill vibe and good time. Had a royal tour of the place by lift operator ,was completely satisfied and rode until the last bus at the bottom of powder country. Legs were burning and still wanted more. A must see

I found lightly tracked, deep powder on Monday... 5 days after a big storm. That's what makes Powder Mountain great.

I have been going to the Ogden Valley and skiing Powder for the last 6 years. If you need to rent gear, grab it down at Diamond Peak in Eden, a little cheaper, and much nicer gear. The road to Powder is tough. I always have a rental car, so the wear and tear is not a big deal to me. For beginner and warming up, I prefer the 1st hill, with the Sundowner lift. A couple of nice greens, and you can work your way up to a pretty steep blue. The ski school is great, and you often end up with a private lesson even when you sign up for a group. After lunch head over to the Hidden Lake lift. Lots of nice blue groomers, and East 40 is a blast with all the dips. Lunch time, head up the hill to the main resort. You can catch a bus. The lodge has more variety of food. Nothing fancy, but a lot cheaper than Park City resorts. Powder is my favorite resort, primarily due to the lack of crowds and the A+ snow. Very family friendly. About the only downside is a lack of night life nearby when the sun goes down. I don't go to party, so that's fine by me.

Been boarding at Powder Mountain for 13 years now. Road up to the resort is very steep! Killer on your car. Make sure your car is in good condition...and chances are you'll smoke your brakes coming back down if you aren't careful. You do have the option of parking at a store at the bottom and taking the shuttle up the road to the resort. You can rent everything you need at the resort (ski shop and cafeteria are at the top of the road. Don't turn left at first lift, keep going.) Rentals also available at a shop you will pass before you get to the steep resort road. It will be on your left hand side. (can't remember the name) Call the mountain or go to their website for further info. Beginning area for kids, yes ma'am. Good people, good resort! Don't come with an attitude or we locals will knock you down! Aside from that, we're the friendliest people you'll meet!

Powder Mountain has just received a major dump! If you have never been before, arrange for an tour with a Mountain Adventure tour. They take you places you would never find!
