Powder Mountain in Utah is just like its name – a haven for powder skiers. Powder Mountain feels private, uncrowded, and unbelievably special as they limit ticket sales to 1,500 skiers a day! Powder is owned by The Summit Group, an organization of brilliant business minds, tech startup entrepreneurs, billionaires, artists and band members that purchased Powder Mountain Ski Resort in Eden Utah in 2013. This impressive group of startup owners, nature goers, and party throwers have unveiled their Powder Summit ski village concept, but the ski area will continue to be authentic, all natural snow. It is humble but huge – 8,400 ac including 2,876 lift served acres (9 lifts total) plus 507 ac cat skiing (at $25 a ride) and 5,081 ac accessed by a hike or served by shuttle bus when you ski beyond the lifts. You get the drift, Powder is special and has been since 1972.

When I went earlier this year it snowed just perfectly the day before skiing. It wasn't too crowded, and the lift ticket wasn't outrageous. We had enough terrain for a variety of levels of skiers and snowboarders.
