Powder Mountain, located in Ogden, Utah, will soon become the largest ski resort in the United States at 7,957-skiable acres. The news was first announced on Friday, October 28, 2016.
According to the press release, Powder Mountain is currently in the midst of adding two new lifts, accessing over 1,000 acres of new terrain for the 2016-2017 winter season. This is the largest lift-serviced resort expansion in North American history. Additionally, the resort is capping season and day passes, which will increase the amount of acreage per skier, making Powder Mountain not only the largest but the most spacious ski area in the United States. Here are the full details:
- 2 New SkyTrac Lifts: Village Lift & Mary’s Lift
- Over 1000 Acres of New Lift Serviced Terrain
- 4 Lift Accessible Side Country Areas
- 7900+ Lift Accessible Skiable Acres - Largest in US
- 8464 Total Skiable Acres
- Lowest skier density of any major ski area in North America
- Day Tickets Limited to 2,000 per Day
- Adult Season Passes Limited to 1,000
"We strive to maintain the uncrowded, wide open, adventurous experience Pow Mow is known for. By adding two new lifts and over 1,000 acres of new lift accessible terrain, capping ticket sales at 2,000 per day and establishing a limit of 1,000 adult season pass holders annually, we aim to keep our skier density of 1 acre per skier. Compare that with some of the largest resorts in the region who routinely see skier densities in excess of 14 skiers per acre, it is easy to see that we are truly committed to Preserving the Pow!” said Mark Schroetel, General Manager of Powder Mountain Resort. "With an advanced full price lift ticket price of $79, we truly offer all the terrain of the largest resorts in the country at half the price and a fraction of the crowd."
Pow Mow is scheduled to open for the 2016-2017 season in early December.
