On October, 28, Utah-based Powder Mountain announced the addition of two new lifts that will provide access to over 1,000 acres of new terrain.
This will be the largest lift-serviced expansion in North American history.
The resort is also capping season and day passes, which will increase the amount of acreage per skier. Because of this, Powder Mountain will have the lowest skier density of any major ski area in North America.
The two new lifts (said to be installed in December) will come with six miles of new roads and a new town. The roads will connect the existing resort to the new town location—which rests on a saddle at 8,600 feet intersecting the top three bowls. The new town was modeled after the Swiss town of Wengen and will be similar in size to downtown Aspen and Telluride.
For years Pow Mow has been one of those underappreciated "secret spots" near Ogden, Utah, and I'm interested to see how this expansion affects that.

Naysayers claimed that Brady was under-inflated with hot air, and his bold assertions would lead to naught. Related: Tom Brady is "Going Big" at The Yellowstone Club This Year
It’s been a bit since we’ve seen anyone channel their inner Erik Roner and point it straight off one of the biggest and proudest cliffs in Jackson – the massive air looker’s left of Cody Peak’s Central Couloir. With all-time snow coverage and a healthy dose of blue sky, @tmeador_ski hucked it off Cody this weekend, pulling his chute above a small crowd of gaping onlookers.
