Powder Mountain Ski Resort near Eden, Utah, and Escape2ski connect you to skiing, snowboarding, snow reports, trail maps, lift tickets, lodging and webcams. Powder Mountain Ski Resort is a large ski resort with diverse terrain that offers something for every type of skier and snowboarder. The resort is located on land that was settled by Frederick Cobabe and used for ranching during the early 1900’s. The idea of creating a ski facility came from a brief discussion between Dr. Alvin Cobabe (Fred’s son) and friends during a horseback outing along Lightening Ridge. They suggested that the terrain featured on the family’s land would be perfect for skiing. So Dr. Alvin, who had already acquired his father’s land, began to accumulate adjacent acreage to support his vision of operating a ski resort. On February 12, 1972, Dr. Alvin witnessed his dream become a reality as Powder Mountain Ski Resort opened on the Sundown Peak area with a chairlift, several trails, night skiing under the stars and an outdoor barbecue that served as the concession area. The following season, the Main Lodge and Sundown Lodge were constructed along with the addition of the new Timberline chairlift.

Over the decades Powder Mountain Ski Resort has continued to expand not only by adding additional terrain but with new lifts and services to make your visit to Powder Mountain Ski Resort one to remember. One amazing feature that exists at Powder Mountain Ski Resort, which truly differentiates it from other resorts, is that it hosts in-bounds Snowcat Single Ride service. For a reasonable, additional fee above the regular lift ticket prices, you can access Lightening Ridge, near James Peak, Rain Tree Snowcat in Cobabe Canyon and new for the 2016/17 winter season, Lefty’s Canyon Snowcat. Note: Snowcat operations are dependent on Mother Nature so check in with the mountain before making plans. With the perfect combination of lift serviced terrain and snowcat privileges, Powder Mountain Ski Resort provide skiers and snowboarders with the ultimate snowsports experience and an opportunity to have a memorable day on the slopes.
