SKI - - RESORTS OF THE YEAR 2019 -

PW What’s close to a big city, gets more than 500 inches of snow per year, and boasts 8,400 ski­able acres? This is a joke, right? Nope, Pow­der Moun­tain is just such a uni­corn. Then why isn’t this place a ma­jor des­ti­na­tion re­sort the likes of Whistler and Vail? First, there’s very lit­tle in the way of fa­cil­i­ties, and prac­ti­cally no lodg­ing at the base. And with just four lifts, it’s hard to rack up much ver­ti­cal. But that doesn’t de­tract from the fact that Pow Mow has both the snow and the ter­rain to make for a stu­pen­dous ski va­ca­tion. While the lift­served (3,000 acres) is mostly blues and mel­lower blacks, the snow­cat and lift-ac­ces­si­ble ter­rain (over 5,000 acres) is worth the price of ad­mis­sion.
