Ski Tours and Activities

In addition to the single ride snowcat trips up Lightning Ridge, the resort offers full day Snowcat Powder Safaris in an area that offers 2,500 acres of wide open bowls, gladed aspen groves and tight northeast facing evergreens. The terrain is reasonably gentle with pitches of only 20-25 degrees, so the cat skiing is not just limited to expert skiers and boarders. The cat skiing includes guiding, lunch and an avalanche beacon. The Mountain Adventure Programs yurt can provide more information or assist with reservations.

Another great powder hound activity is heli-skiing. USA heli skiing is limited, and Diamond Peaks Heliski Adventures at Powder Mountain is one a handful of operators. Diamond Peaks provide some of the most inexpensive heli-skiing in the USA. They offer 6 run packages as well as single run packages, which is a great way to get a taste of heli-skiing.

Family Activities

A good activity for the family is a visit to the George S. Eccles Dinosaur Park in Ogden. The park has more than 100 dinosaur sculptures that come complete with sound effects – scary! 

Adventure Activities

Powder Mountain is the only US ski resort to offer an exclusive area for snow-kiting. A snow-kiting pass for $20 provides access to the area between Hidden Lake parking lot and the Sunrise lift area. The Mountain Adventure Centre yurt can provide information on lessons. Equipment hire is included in the cost of the lesson.

Red Cliff Adventures offer snowmobile rental or guided snowmobile tours, and are based in nearby Huntsville.

Leisure Activities

If you can’t join the Ogden Valley locals in ice-hole fishing for perch, there are other leisure activities in the area. The Ogden Hill Aerospace Museum has an interesting collection of air force planes from various eras. Union Station in Ogden houses three museums including a car, train and firearms museum. There’s something for everyone.

The resort has recently commenced sunset snowcat tours that include a meal.


Powder Mountain has lots of lots of night time events centred around the terrain park, as well as grom events for the youngsters.
