Powder Mountain Resort Facilities

Wagner Custome Skis
Powder Mountain is a no-frills ski resort, so it’s more of a “ski area” than a “resort”. The contrast in facilities between Powder Mountain and Snowbasin is extreme. Certainly don’t expect much at Pow Mow except for basic rustic buildings.

The services and facilities are predominantly spread across the Sundown lift base and the main base/resort center at Timberline Lodge, with some amenities at Hidden Lake Lodge.

Powder Mountain Ski Rentals

The Timberline Ski shop next to the Timberline Lodge has a range of rental ski and snowboard packages. Recreational gear is rented out at rock-bottom prices, and prices for performance gear are pretty good too. Considering the potential for deep powder, it would be wise to contemplate renting fat skis.

The Sundown Ski Shop is located on the lower level of the Sundown Lodge. It’s close to the ski school and has more of an emphasis on beginner to intermediate gear rentals.

Rental equipment is also available at the Diamond Peaks Shop in Eden. They have the latest skis including super fat skis. Another option when coming through Ogden is to stop at Alpine Sports (1165 Patterson St, between 30th and 31st Street).

Powder Mountain Ski School

The Powder Mountain Snowsports School is located at the Sundown lift area, but it’s possible to take a private lesson from the other areas also. The ski school runs standard group programs for ages 13+ which are good value for money relative to other Utah resorts.

For kids, the Pow Mow ski school offers group ski lessons for ages 6-12 and snowboard lesson for ages 8-12. Younger children can have a semi-private lesson with a 2:1 ratio.

The snowsports school also has an adaptive sports program.

Facilities for Children

There is no specific Powder Mountain child care on-mountain, although High Altitude Care down in Eden is one option for day care. For overnight guests, it’s possible to get in-home babysitting.

Eating On Mountain

There are eateries in each of the day lodges and on peak weekends they are typically jam-packed. Most of the fare is of the heavily fried variety, so don’t expect anything too gourmet.

The Timberline Cafeteria at the resort center is a large cafeteria that has great soups and sandwiches. The Powder Keg, the pub downstairs, also serves meals.

The Hidden Lake Lodge serves Mexican fare and hot beverages that can be consumed whilst taking in the great views. This place can be freezing as the doors don’t close properly, so don’t rely on stopping here to warm up on a cold day. The small Sundown Lodge serves up fast food such as pizza and it’s open until 8pm for night skiing.
