Powder Mountain Resort announces major expansion with new terrain and lift-served offerings

EDEN, Utah — Powder Mountain Resort announced significant expansions to both its public and private terrain offerings on March 29, which will add 1,047 acres of lift-served terrain and 980 acres of private land with a 1,766-foot vertical drop. This expansion is in addition to the three previously announced public lifts.

CEO Reed Hastings said, “We’re fortunate in Utah to have enough land to expand our skiable terrain and keep the ski experience uncrowded. These acquisitions, alongside our decisions to not accept mega-passes and limit day ticket sales, help to fulfill our promise of keeping Powder Mountain uncrowded, independent, and a truly special place for generations to come.”

The resort’s extension includes a new public lift service in Wolf Canyon, which offers access to DMI and some other expert terrain. This new infrastructure aims to add 900 acres of lift-served terrain and 147 acres for hike-to access.

In addition to public enhancements, Powder Mountain is acquiring 2,390 acres from a neighboring property to expand its private homeowner offering. This new private terrain, close to the village and naturally extending the current offerings, features 1,766 feet of consistently pitched vertical drop over 980 acres, currently accessible by cat skiing.

Construction for the new lift infrastructure is anticipated to begin this summer. The objective is to launch guided adventure experiences for the 2024/25 winter season. The lift installation is set to be completed by summer 2025.

Surveying and planning for the expansions will start immediately. Detailed construction timelines and lift infrastructure routes will be announced.
