This is for the mountain biking. So it overall is decent. They spent all their money on the XXL jumpline which is fairly easy and they have no progression into it. Being a pretty good MTB rider, this wasn't an issue for me and I could clear with ease, but for new riders it will be. All the other trails are meh. The green trails are ass without a doubt. The only other decent trail they have is eagles landing but after the small ass 6ft drop the trail is unflowy and boring as hell. Really powder ridge, up your game it's kind of pathetic to see a single good trail, being XXL jumps with no form of progression or way to work up to it, and then the rest of the trails being unflowy and garbage. I mean wild turkey is fun, but there should be an actually accurate trail map and better trails. Also, why did you get rid of the half pipe jumps, those were also fun. ... Full Review
Great place for beginners and family. But I won't go back only because i hate the chairlift exits. It is stiff and connected to slanted area where multiple slopes' entrance are. Some people just climb up this area not looking if people exits from the lift, to get whichever slope they wanna ski. Since the exit is so stiff, then slanted, it's not easy to avoid collisions. (I was snowboarding, not skiing)... Full Review
My children (ages 5 and 7) have had their best season yet thanks to the amazing instruction provided at Powder Ridge. My husband and I are so thankful that they made such tremendous strides this year and we can plan our first "family" ski trip away for next winter. Super pleased.... Full Review
Powder Ridge is a good place if you like to night snowboard. During the day, it can get pretty busy, and not too fun to be running into people. At night though, it is awesome! Lots of lights mae you see better that most resorts. It is a good one day place, but I wouldn't take a week trip there. There needs to be more runs, if it is going to be so packed with people....
