This was my first time in Utah. We skied the first day at Snowbird and then 2 days at Powder Mountain. Powder Mountain was the bomb. Not only were we getting fresh powder while skiing, the lines were not very long and moved at a rapid pace. They have newer lifts so they run faster than some of the other places. They had 2 gondolas, which were nice because we were able to ride them all day without having to get on a lift and get cold. The runs were also wide open, huge and not crowded. There were times that I would stop and realize it was only my husband and I on the run..no one else around! They had a variety of terrain to suit any taste. We talked to some locals who said Powder Mountain was a hidden gem, mostly frequented by locals. The lodge was very nice and the food was awesome (a little pricey..but aren't they all?). I had an awesome time and can't wait to go back.
