Powder Mountain information
Backcountry enthusiasts groove on Powder Mountain. They've had banner years of late, and its over 7000 skiable acres means there's plenty of elbow room. Half of the area is lift-served by four chairs (one high-speed) and three rope tows. There are two terrain parks and night skiing till 10pm. Best of all, two weeks after a storm, you'll still find powder.
Snow Cat rides access 3000 acres of exclusive bowls, glades and chutes for a day gliding on powder. Inquire about backcountry guided tours and snow-kiting lessons. The rest of the lowdown: 3005ft vertical drop, base elevation 6895ft, 7000 skiable acres; 25% beginner, 40% intermediate, 35% advanced.
