My girlfriend and I spent the last 2days enjoying the best snow on earth. We unexpectedly found ourselves snowboarding during the last weekend of March '08 not knowing that we would be showered with the the most beautiful powder that we've seen in quite some time. Powder Mountain lived up to its name and beyond. We love this place. The local atmosphere is incredibly friendly. Everyone seems to want to help you have a great time. The trails were perfect especially at "Sunrise Ridge" where few people were to be found. People were coming from Park City and not believing how good the snow was. We were recently in Colorado, but nothing there could compare to what we continue to experience here at Powder Mountain & Snowbasin. We live in Austin and though there is a straight flight to Denver, which lands us there at 7:45am, the extra leg to Salt Lake is worth it all. The lift tickets are much more reasonable ($44-51) compared to Colorado ($85) as are the accommodations. The food is also much better at the local restaurants. We highly recommend this place. It has "never" disappointed us. Utah forever!
