Pow Wow is a great resort to just get away from all the crowds and waiting in line. Their lifts may be a little slower than most resorts (besides hidden lake) but i'd much rather be sitting on the lift than standing in line, better view. If your looking for rails, they have plenty of them. Their nighthill is great, even in the day I beleive they have some of the steepest groomed runs on the nighthill, which ya can fly down at amazing speeds with a mini terrain park with rails and kickers on the night hill as well. It is a wide and diverse mountain with lots of fun stuff to do. They use no snow making equippment. I went like 20 times this year, plan on getting a season pass next year for sure. They have a spring session snowboard and ski comp in the spring too which is fun to checkout. I'd say their backcountry is about as fun as it gets, but thats just what I enjoy more, there is fun for all types of riders at Pow Wow. Probably not the best resort to go alone if your still just learning. Lots of places to get lost, but if you read signs and know where u are on the mountain at all times then you should be fine, but you can never be too careful were all human and can make a mistake, making a wrong turn. So dont do unfamiliar terrain alone
