Going to Powder Mountain

For the first time tomorrow. Any thoughts on the trip from SLC or maybe a place to get a cutp of joe or a meal? Also any thoughts on the mountain itself? Expert skier never been before.

I haven’t been there in 40 years, I’ll bet. The road going up there is really steep, and you don’t really recognize how steep until going back down. I remember it being a lot of fun, and having bought an Oh Henry in the lodge one time, biting into it, and seeing a grub or small worm in it. Fortunately the grub or worm was fully intact, but I lost my appetite at that point.

Resort food? Couldn’t tell you. Ogden Valley is kind of a food wasteland. If you want the best burger around, hit the Shooting Star Saloon in Huntsville.


I’ve been maybe 5 or 6 times although it’s been several years since our last visit. Fairly accomplished as well. We had a lot of fun as a family at the resort. I’m sorry but off the top of my head I couldn’t give you any details on lifts or run names. I do remember however that there isn’t a ton of lifts for the skiable acreage and almost all the lifts we rode were fixed grip so be prepared for a slower climb up the mountain.

I also want to say that it offers a cat skiing experience although we never partook.

Report back your findings though.

The Star Burger is quite the sandwich, but best to be left to those with low cholesterol and verified clear arteries. A double cheese burger with polish sausage is nothing to take lightly.

It’s been way too long since I was at the Shooting Star. Cool place. I think the last time I was in there you could still play “Burnin’ Down the House” and follow it with “Sioux City Sue” on the jukebox.

Thanks all!
We had a great time. Super cold, but we enjoyed excellent Raman noodles in the lodge. mixed conditions: those being, groomers or hard-packed, wind slabbed, sun cooked dust on crust with occasional wind-drift powder (2 inches) on the same in the trees on north slopes.
We had a great time until the flat-light, tornado winds and sub zero weather transformed the mountain into, well, a mountain in winter. :wink:
