Powder Mountain is the largest ski resort in North America. This means that skiers looking for less-dense crowds, endless powder, and untouched corduroy should be able to check off every box! The resort has almost three thousand acres of traditional lift-served terrain and plenty of opportunities to head off-piste into the backcountry. Be sure to check out the cat skiing.
Nordic Valley is a perfect local, budget-friendly ski area for beginners, families with young children, and those looking to escape the crowds at some of the larger resorts. With over 450 skiable acres and a 6-person high-speed lift, there is something for skiers and riders at any level of ability. The area also has one triple lift, one surface lift, 32 runs, and great learn-to-ski or ride programs. It is one of the few ski areas in Utah that offers night skiing.
