Powder Mountain is the most unique ski area you will ski in regards to services provided for off-piste skiing within a ski resort. You can ski an area called Powder Country that is an untouched mountain face which runs down to the resort access road where a shuttle picks you up after your powder run and returns you to the base area. You will also be able to pay $25 for a ride in a snowcat to ski virgin snow that is located within the resort boundary. Add all that to the great skiing in the regular chair serviced area and you have an off-piste haven that is dressed up as a ski resort. On top of all this, Powder Mountain has a friendly laid-back atmosphere with a limited number of skiers capped at 1500 per day which is rarely reached.
