Shots taken ct and while this was my 2nd trip to Powder Mountain, but the first one was 15yrs ago.
Today was day 16 on skis for this trip and as people might have guessed, I was at Powder Mountain Utah. They had a couple inches overnight and their last dump was Monday.
Not to be worried as there are very few skiers midweek and there were fresh to lightly tracked lines to be had all over. Even the most obvious and heavily skied runs from the chairs were still chowder and not crud. Not a bump to be found anywhere.
Powder Mountain isn't very steep in most places, but relatively steep shots can be found a plenty off the Paradise chair, about half way down from the poma and in Powder Country.
I was here in Utah 2 weeks ago at the beginning of this trip and was lucky enough to ski with ct55 and his friend Dick. We skied 2 days together and on one day they were heading to Powder Mountain, but I already had a paid for ticket to the cottonwoods so didn't go. They reported back how good it was and that persuaded me to go back today even though it had been 3 days since a significant snowfall. It was indeed very good and the following pics only show runs/tracks etc... as I was solo.
The extravagant base facilities
How dare they track it up this much after 3 days

A little scenery on the all downhill road back to the lift from cobabe canyon

Even all the main just off the lift runs were no worse than chowder
