Powder Mtn Local

Great snow every time I've gone (4 times). Trails for just about everyone that is intermediate and above, I wouldn't recommend a first time skier to come here. But if you're looking for a wide variety of challenges and tons of different ways to get down the mtn. This is the place! Staff is amazing and ski patrol is probably the best I've ever met! Night skiing is really amazing here. I recommend trying to get far from the lodge so you can avoid crowds though!

Great trip to Pow Mow

16/03/2020
Spent 2 days of Pow Mow and one at Snow Basin. Had so much fun the first 2, returned for a third. We arrived on Tuesday March 10th after 6 inches fell on Saturday, so expectations were low for finding powder. Boy were we wrong. Crowds were so low when we arrived, that plenty of fresh tracks were still be had. Temps had stayed just cold enough to set things up nicely. Certainly wasn't a locals powder day, I am sure, but for riders from the east coast, set up great for us. Spoke to a local before we headed out on day one and he provided some great trips to navigate to truly experience all the place has to offer. There were runs when we did not see a sole, except for the lifties, who always had a smile and asked how our day was going. The amount of skiable terrain is just crazy! 360 views from the lift - all rideable. After getting a feel for the terrain the first day, we took the snow cat to Lighting Ridge the second day, Same story.... not a true local powder day, but plenty of fresh stuff off the back face of the ridge. Ended both days at the Powder Keg for a few local beers and bar trivial. The Apres is certainly not Park City and has a hard core local vibe, which we loved. This place is all about the riding (or skiing) not about fancy amenities, and for the skier and rider who is looking to experience nature untainted. Not many places like this left. High quality snow, plenty of places to explore, and pow stashes to be had (even for the non locals).

Had a epic day on the mountain all thanks to my guide Joshua Phillips. Been a few days since any new snow and he was able to take me to fresh snow all day. I would highly recommend him for any snowboarder looking for a great day.

I came to Pow Mow for a week and it was amazing. It snowed a total of 37 inches while we were out there. The lift lines were excellent, Friday there was more people than the rest of the week but it was no more than a 3 minute wait. This was my second trip out to Utah and I have to say I enjoyed it more than Park City. Park City I was fighting for the fresh tracks, while Powder I had fresh tracks all day. Not to mention by 12pm park city is practically all tracked up. The backcountry or powder country as they refer to them were unbelievably good. The tree lines in between trails were also very fun and untouched. I did one ride on the cat ski and that was also so much fun and challenging in a good way. The terrain overall was 10 out of 10, and the friendliness of the staff was 10 out of 10. I even had someone from the staff show me some parts in the powder country that I would have never found had it not been for them. The only thing that they are lacking is maybe a few more high speed lifts with bubble shields.

PowMow is surprisingly awesome place to ski. I had read many mixed reviews about the place, so I was somewhat open minded when we made it there. It has the same vibe as Alta, Bridger Bowl or A-Basin: it's all about the skiing or boarding. And yet it is so unlike any other resort I've been to, there are hills everywhere that somehow connect. Yes there are long shallow groomers, but when we there about 5 days after a 2 foot storm, we still found bits and pieces of untouched in Powder Country and plenty on Lightning Ridge ($25 snowcat ride). There is plenty of fun steep stuff in PowMow and there are no lift lines : ) The lifts are pretty slow but this is not investment banker territory, who cares enjoy the ride. This is a totally chilled mountain.

A delightful, rustic resort. The beauty of this place is that all comers are there to either ski or board. No one visits to be 'seen' or look pretty. When the pow is on (and that is fairly regularly) Pow Mow has something for everyone, from wide open terrain to gorgeous bowls out wide to well spaced glades and tree skiing. Add in the Lightning Ridge cat ride for a small amount, the two aptly named Powder Country areas (serviced by a bus)and Powder Safaris to awesome backcountry and the skier/boarder has great choice on any day. There is plenty of opportunity for Alpine Touring if that's your go (take serious note of avalanche warnings). Powder dumps will generally last a few days, particularly in the outer reaches of Cobabe Canyon. And the pow is definitely light, dry and fluffy, usually blower. The place is rarely crowded, Saturday's being the busiest and it is still possible to move into uncrowded slopes. Lift lines are almost non-existent. It may seem busy in the car parks but due to the amount of acreage, skiers and boarders spread out and sometimes the place can seem deserted. They're out there somewhere!
Facilities are adequate, food and drink are just average and at the end of the day, if you choose, there is always some fun home grown US talent playing in the Powder Keg bar.
The resort staff are very warm and hospitable. They make you feel part of the Pow Mow family.
Well worth a visit.

I have heard a ton of buzz about this resort and I decided to head up on a powder day. Poopy at beast. There were few people and the place was tore up. The terrain is very mellow (snowbird is much better) and boring. The chairs are super slow and tons of traversing to get to them. There were not that many people because the snow wasnt worth it.

There crown jewel, powder country was boring and uneventful.

I would go somewhere else in Utah, much better snow in the cottonwoods

When a resort has the balls to call themselves "Powder Mountain", and they ended up understating it, you know you're at the right place, at the right time. I rode here for the first time Jan. 8-10, and it dumped the most heavenly snow. They proved to themselves that "the greatest snow on earth" is not just limited to the cottonwood. And it stayed like that for days. If you're planning at trip to ride Utah, and not sure about making the drive up here. Don't bother, the locals will thank you, and what's one more regret in your life?

Most the chairs were slow, but at times it was a blessing. A lot of the employees were friendly, and the powder keg bar? I haven't figured out if the government here keeps most the beer extremely weak because they are worried about my health, or they want me to drink twice as much, so they can tax me twice. Either way, the "amenities" aren't anything to write home about, but that shouldn't even phase you when the pow stays so good, for so long. Being from Michigan, and typically making trips to the south shore, like heavenly or Kirkwood, I never really understood what they mean when they say "blower pow", but powder mountain showed me, by freezing my helmet to my hair from taking face shots all day. Never having to wait for a single lift line. I am forever indebted to this place. As a wise person once said, "ok, we let you in, now don't f**k it up for the rest of us"
