We are from California. Skiing/boarding over there is not the same as here in Utah, especially Powder Moutain.
This is an awesome place. Powder everywhere. Trails are wide and long, especially on the backside. Hardly anyone was there, so there was no wait for lifts. People are very nice and courteous. Staffs are friendly.
Food is very reasonable. Hamburger is $5. A cup of chili $4.50. Sweet Fries $3. Where do you find this kind of pricing at ski resorts? None, that I have been to.
The only downsides are there are limited number of lifts and parking. Parking area is a bit confusing. There are three areas to park (top, middle and bottom of the mountain). When we got there, we saw the first parking lot which was at the bottom of the resort. There were hardly any cars. After gearing up, then one person was nice enough to recommend us to go to the middle area. Our recommendation, park at the top or the middle parking lot.
Driving up might be a little bit tricky if you have 2WD if there is snow on the road. Check the road condition before heading up.
