Tyax Heli Skiing Packages
Powder Mountain has very little in the way of evening entertainment or dining. Actually it has absolutely nothing! Many families that stay at Powder Mountain lodging hole up for the evening and have home-cooked meals. At Powder Mountain the only real option for an evening feed is to walk down to the Sundown Lodge (open until 8pm). The menu is limited to grill options such as burgers, fries and pizzas and it's incredibly basic.

Those seeking restaurants and bars will need to drive down to the nearby Ogden Valley or go to Ogden.

Ogden Valley Restaurants

A great Eden restaurant for dinner is Kuna Bistro.

Another Eden must-do is the Carlos and Harley's Fresh-Mex Cantina which is located next to the Diamond Peak shop. The décor of the Mexican bar and restaurant is a mish-mash of objects that adds to the fun atmosphere. They have a full bar menu including the essential margaritas.

Another option for casual dining in Eden is Eats of Eden (2595 N Hwy 162, Eden), or if you just want a simple pizza, try Ogden Valley Pizza.

The pubs in Ogden Valley also offer a great feed.

There are also lots of restaurants in Ogden. Decent ones include Timbermine Steakhouse and Union Grill, and for something a little different, Prairie Schooner provides a dining experience under covered wagons with a bit of taxidermy on the side!

During the day, an Eden gem is the coffee shop next to the supermarket. It is a far cry from Starbucks in a fantastically good way.

Powder Mountain Bar & Nightlife

The Powder Keg at the resort center is the only pub at Powder Mountain. The atmosphere is very relaxed and social as skiers and boarders share stories of the powder adventures of the day. This is an après ski bar in the truest sense because it is only open until 6pm. The nightlife at Powder Mountain is rocking! Ha!

Ogden Valley Bars

If you want a bar that stays open beyond 6pm, the only options are a few bars in Ogden Valley, or clubs in Ogden on historic 25th street such as Brewskis or The City Club.

In Eden, Carlos and Harley’s Fresh-Mex Cantina is one option, but for a real pub go to the Shooting Star in Huntsville (7350 E 200 S, Huntsville). This could be considered a historic Olympic landmark because during the 2002 games, this pub was bursting at the seams with European skiers after a big day at Snowbasin. This place oozes so much character that it has to be seen to be believed. It is really dark, almost dingy, so at first it’s hard to make out all the one dollar bills that are stuck to the ceiling. There are revolting animal heads on the walls including the head of a St Bernard that is so huge that it could give you nightmares for weeks. Nevertheless, this interesting pub is a great place to go for a drink and have the famous Star Burger in a refreshingly unglitzy environment. The pub prides themselves on being a no-frills drinking establishment that doesn’t serve salads, take any alterations to the menu, or have a large range of beers.

The Saddlebag Saloon in Eden is a little cute bar with a good range of draft beers and a few other beverages. Don’t expect fancy cocktails.
