Went to PM due to an advice from another boarder > It was definitely worth the trip.
>Powder in every tree run and ungroomed run
>12$ Catski:: that is almost ridiculously cheap
>300+for HeliSKi or Catski in mountain
>Really the cheapest ticket in town (49$ from alpinesports)
>night board for 15$ starting at 3PM
>If you are lucky enough to be here during a downpour : snow so deep its scary

>very steep and that chain warning is no JOKE
>Resort's amenities is a liitle lacking
>Food is so and so (bring your own)
>basecamp is not really centralized:If you are wandering around close to 4PM be aware that they are prompt with the closing of lifts and getting to basecamp is from one trail from one lift.

Overall I really enjoyed PowderMountain. We stayed in Ogden drove up everyday. Food can be really good in Ogden if you look. Spent alot of money on 25th St.. Its Okay nothing like Moocchies/Red Iguana/Pats BBQ in SLC. I would ride the bus if it is snowing alot rather than attempt the drive. For more info visit sierrasnowboard forum :)
