Middle of nowhere

Full review

This is an amazing mountain. I hate resorts and this is about as far from one as you can get. Its far off the beaten path, so even 2 days after a bid storm there are plenty of great lines though the Aspen tree groves and a monstrous Powder Country that they run a bus down to a pick-up point about 3 miles down the road. The Snow Cat will bring you to the top of Lightning Ridge, which is where I had the ride of my life. The terrain is fantastic for all skill levels. Everyone can find something that will suit them at Powder Mountain. With a small snack bar that serves as the bar as well, there isn't much as far as chow goes, but who cares when you have a mountain of this size. Being out in the middle of nowhere, there are less bratty kids running around unsupervised, which is always good.
