Since taking ownership of Powder Mountain, we’ve helped ski operations grow consistently, offering more seasonal and full-time job opportunities to the residents of Ogden Valley and surrounding communities while helping Powder Mountain remain an economically viable, independent resort.
We’ve created around 80 jobs through our resort offerings, plus provided job opportunities for people in the construction, land planning, engineering and architectural industries. Additionally, we have team members serving on various local and state boards that benefit the Ogden Valley, including the Ogden Valley Business Association, Visit Ogden and GOAL Foundation.
Utah Transit Authority bus service to Powder Mountain is subsidized by our team to help reduce traffic congestion and pollution in the valley. We also subsidize and provide venues for community events, offer heavily discounted season passes for Weber and Cache County residents and free community dinners.
We have spent approximately $700,000 on the planning and construction of over 30 miles of no-charge, accessible, world-class biking and hiking trails, with plans for more. These provide recreation opportunities for the local community and help alleviate overcrowding on the Ogden/Ogden Valley trail networks.
We provide free artistic programming on the mountain, plus at area homeless shelters and elementary schools. Hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash, equipment, lift tickets, expeditions, and services have been donated to support various community efforts, including developing sustainable design and master plan for the Ogden Valley, local and regional charities, and to help active and retired military and their families.
