Pros: Fry sauce! mmmmmm ketchup&mayo!

Cons: horrible snow, LONGGGG LINES, rude locals, No animal statues to greet you.

Stay away from this place! Horrible twisty mtn rd with NO SHUTTLE to get you up or back down!!
Snowbasin is much easier to get to with great modern facilities.
Just do yourself,(err me) a favor and stick to Snowbasin or the SLC areas!!

Snowbasin has the absolute best snow, and due to their location they get HUGE dumps and the snow is NEVER crusty or windblown; always deep deep deep and light. Gotta love that famous UT snow!

Oh, did I mention the Gondola?? Snow basin has 2. PowMow will never see a gondola, if you really want the real skiing experience complete with a gondola or two just go to Snowbasing..you won't even have to close your eyes to fool yourself into thinking you're in Chamonix!!


Pros: can ski from your vehicle

Cons: powder country bus really bad

dontskienough was right about Pow Mow but wrong about Snotbasin - it is equally bad with an old lift system and terrible facilities. I think all of you that are serious about the quality of your ski vacation should stick with The Canyons, "Dear" Valley, and Park Sundance !


Pros: Great Snow, lots of terrain

Cons: one way in and out

 I love this place. You can get lost it's so big,
After a big dump, there's still powder two days later.
Just don't tell the trendonistas.

Cool area, but I am surprised this is rated #1 in UT. I would rate snowbasin higher personally. POWMOW is a huge area however most of the terrain is comprised of meadow skipping low angle pow. Its cheap price and a good place to get some pow if you don't want to fight for it down salt lake way.


Pros: The snow and terrain are awesome. No crowds ever and plenty of challenging terrain.

Cons: Atop the mountain with the treacherous road back down. No amenities close by, except back down at the bottom in Eden.



Pros: Powder, powder & more powder when it's gone elsewhere. No lift lines. glades, backcountry, cat skiing, diamond peaks heli service

Cons: Access road-check your brakes this mother is steep Bring a lunch the food stinks.

for those who want it, Wolf Creek, Eden and Huntsville have limited and OK dining. Ogden offers some decent dining and bars but its all relative because you're in Utah anyway....


Pros: Nice out of the way mountain

Cons: Not much steep skiing

Nice Mountain some fun stuff here and there.  If you are visiting  give it a try.  If your into steeps and very challenging skiing, stay with Snowbird and Alta You would be disappointed with Powder Mountain


Pros: Value, lack of crowds, acreage, snow quality,

Cons: lonely, overly enjoyable,

Powder Mountain is the place to go if you want to get your pow-shred on. Its is the best place to go after a storm in search of snow stashes. If there has not been a storm for a few weeks they have a great terrain park as well as steep groomers and a wide variety of terrain that is enjoyable for begginers to experts. I love powder country and the $12 cat accesible lightning ridge. You can get great powder days after a storm, which is becoming a rareity here in utah. 


Pros: Lots of powder, days after a snow. No lift lines. No development. Cheap lift tickets.

Cons: Relatively low angle. No development.

Spent a week at PowMow 2/7/09-2/13/09.  Great snow.  No crowds.  Despite only one high-speed quad and the rest older slow speed models there are simply no lift lines.  Snow lasts for days.  After a big snow the low angle of most of the area can make it difficult.  There is steeper terrain but you have to look for it.  Some good tree skiing.  The cat ride is worth $12 if you don't want to walk, especially given the cheap lift ticket.  Buying multi-day vouchers at the ticket office gives you a daily rate of $48/day.    Contrary to the previous review we saw the patrol out skiing all of the time.  In fact I even commented that they must get to ski a lot more because there are so few people there.


There is no development at the mountain which is good and bad.  We stayed in a condo on the mountain.  Buy all of your food, beer, and wine in town before driving up the road.  If you want to try PowMow for a day from one of the bigger resorts I would go a day or two after a big storm when the resorts are already skied off as you will still find many fresh turns at Powder Mountain.
