Powder Mountain Ski Resort
For a real Utah hidden gem, Powder Mountain has to be high on the list.
There's over 2,800 acres of Utah powder to explore, with varied terrain, some excellent hike-to skiing and even cat-skiing at this little-known resort near Ogden, just to the north of Salt Lake City. You'll avoid the crowds of the Wasatch Mountains, whilst still getting the famous Utah snow – making Powder Mountain a great option on a multi-resort trip.
You can stay up on the hill, or down in Ogden itself, but we'd recommend basing yourself on the mountain for quick access to the powder each morning. There are grand plans to develop the Summit area in the coming years, which should hopefully add a great deal of variety to the accommodation on offer at present.
