Powder Mountain does live up to its name. It’s one of the most remote ski areas on the Wasatch Range. It can be a journey to get there but a skiing Mecca once arrived. It truly has it’s own Vibe. Owned by a group of entrepreneurs from Silicon Valley with investors that span the Globe, it’s fresh, iconic and old school. Summit Series is working on an expansive masterplan at the top of the mountain beyond Hidden Lake. Some areas of the masterplan will be open to the public and some areas private for their investors. Today it’s as it was 50-years ago with the addition of a high-speed lift chair at Hidden Lake and another high speed lift chair under construction this year.
Powder Mountain has a variety of skiing opportunity from cat skiing to night skiing with the convenience of on-mountain ski and snowboarding rentals. Restaurants at the Base Lodge include the popular Powder Keg that offers live music most nights, draft beer and bar food such as chicken wings, burgers and kale salads. Upstairs at the Base Lodge is a cafeteria that is perfect for families serving Lucky Slice pizza, breakfast burritos, burgers and other comfort food. At the top at Hidden Lake the menu is more Mexican Cantina style with street tacos and taco salads.
This Cabin is located on a private street close to the main road connecting the Sundown lift parking lot to the parking lot of the base lodge. The road is paved to the garage (unique in this subdivision because some locations have to snowmobile to cabins) for easy access. A 4-wheel drive vehicle is mandatory for this ski area. From Wolf Creek in Eden to Powder Mountain, it’s a 5-mile climb to the ski area. Going up is easy but coming down it’s best to put the 4-wheel drive in a low gear to control speed. Depending on snow levels, guests can strap on their skis and maneuver to the Sundown Lift to access Lighting Ridge cat skiing (need a pass beforehand). Lighting Ridge then leads to Paradise Lift in the middle of the ski area. At the end of the day there’s an access trail that leads back to the Cabin’s private road. To start at the Base Lodge (200-300 feet) or Hidden Lake (1 mile) then a short vehicle transfer would be required.
This rustic cabin with cinched logs it everything desired in the mountains with all of luxuries of home. Newly outfitted in the past couple of years with modern style furniture and a fully stocked gourmet kitchen. The floorplan has two living areas so that everyone can have their space and the lower level as a wet bar. The Cabin has large windows bringing the outdoor inside. The views are elevated looking straight down the canyon to Ogden Valley. This is what you gain for driving 5-miles up an inclined road. Large expansive deck with an outdoor grill to sun on warm days. This property has a brand new Bullfrog hot tub to star gaze and watch night skiing after a long day on the slopes.
Utah Lodging recommends that guests plan to purchase groceries on the first day of arrival for the duration of the reservation or arrange for grocery service. Grocery Service fee is $95 plus the grocery bill. This includes liquor store deliveries too. Remember in Utah that Liquor Stores are separate from grocery stores. Better to plan ahead, stock the property and leave the days open to powder ski.
Powder Mountain is known for it’s “All Natural” Snow. It’s legendary for it’s quality of light power snow. Many believe the best in North America.
