Trail-Building Triumph on Powder Mountain

Here at Powder Mountain, we celebrate snowfall each year. With the most skiable acreage of any resort in the U.S., it’s easy to do. Skiers and snowboarders even voted Powder Mountain #2 out of all the resorts in the nation. You can read about that honor in this Business Insider story. 

But what do we do here once the weather warms up?
 
When the snow melts, we’ve made it easy to take to the trails mountain-wide, whether by two wheels or two feet. Since 2016, we’ve built and maintained more than 30 miles of world-class freely accessible trails for the outdoor community. Trail users can check out the mountain’s mind-blowing views and awe-inspiring natural habitat.

Free and open to the public as well as our Powder Mountain community, these trails provide exhilarating recreation opportunities for riders of all skill levels. They also help alleviate overcrowding on the Ogden Valley trail networks, while offering some epic rides and vistas. 

“When we first started the new trail network in ’16, our whole team came out to help, along with some generous volunteers from the community,” General Manager Mark Schroetel says. “It was great to see everyone rally together to help create something we can all enjoy for decades to come – and this is just the beginning. Ongoing trail building is a major part of our Powder Mountain master plan.” 

So far, we’ve invested approximately $700,000 on planning and construction of the trail network, plus an average of $100,000 annually to maintain existing trails and build brand new ones. It truly takes a village to do this, including the generosity of the Walton Family Foundation, who provided a $100,000 grant to help fund the project. 

Trails can be accessed from Timberline Lodge, Hidden Lake Lodge and the Summit Powder Mountain Village. Trail maps are easy to find in these areas also. If you’re new to the sport, or even trying out mountain biking for the first time, rent a bike at Hidden Lake Lodge or Diamond Peak Mountain Sports nearby. 

Whether taking a leisurely hike or coursing down some singletrack on your bike, check out our trails this spring, summer, and fall. Keep visiting too, you may find a new one to explore.
