How is Powder Mountain limiting resource consumption on the mountain?

Our Design Guidelines promote the responsible development of residences on Powder Mountain. Specifically, we incorporate the ICC-700 National Green Building Standard (similar to LEED certification), which speaks to energy efficiency, water conservation, and other green practices. Development plans limit residential building sizes, incorporating small homes and micro-units into the core of our future Village to promote affordability and sustainability.

As well, we limit our resource consumption in many ways, like creating an efficient trail and lift network, eliminating plastic bottles, and not making snow – the largest use of water and energy for most resorts. We’ve also planted 5,000 trees, put 630 acres of land on the east bench of the Ogden Valley into a conservation easement, and we are working with the Ogden Valley Land Trust to put more than 800 additional acres of land into conservation.

What are Powder Mountain’s environmental policies and sustainability efforts?

Our deep commitment to preserving Powder Mountain’s delicate ecosystem impacts every aspect of the Powder Mountain development plan. We’ve added a full-time Ecosystem Specialist with over 40 years of experience to our team. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Biology, Master of Science in Forestry and Ph.D. in Biology, and is a retired Professor of Forest Disturbance Ecology and Management, Wildland Fire Science and Snow and Avalanche Science at Utah State University. He was hired to help us move our development and any on-mountain activation in a sustainable and environmentally healthy direction.. 

We have also partnered with the University of Utah, Utah State University and Weber State University to create an Innovation Zone that will explore next-generation emerging technologies. The Innovation Zone will explore utilizing cleaner utilities like electric, water, and sewer at Powder Mountain, in partnership with local utilities and regulators. 

How does Powder Mountain’s philosophy of stewardship align with the mountain?

There is no disconnect between our philosophy as a resort and resort community and how we treat our mountain. Our foundational philosophy is based in protecting the mountain and its natural environs. A major motivating factor in acquiring Powder Mountain was to save it from the planned overdevelopment of its previous owners, which included a master plan that was double in size and scope to ours, and construction of two highly water-consumptive golf courses and a water park.     

The new master plan was well-vetted by various local/regional wildlife and environmental agencies and groups, and limited to a small percentage of the overall property acreage, with approximately 80% of the project’s Weber County lands retained as open space. 

What’s going on with Powder Mountain’s water rights?

After undergoing a highly scrutinized and collaborative process to obtain and fully utilize our water rights, we gained approval through the State Engineer by meeting and complying with – and continue to meet and comply with – specific, required mitigation measures and conditions. These measures involved developing a plan that utilized the existing 400 acres/foot of water already owned by Powder Mountain. We consistently meet all monitoring and reporting requirements associated with approval.   

Sustainable-use parameters including prohibitions on permanent irrigation on the mountain have been implemented. We have also continuously met and collaborated with all interested parties and stakeholders relative to the water constraints associated with the Ogden Valley, and Powder Mountain’s plan relative to the sustainable use of our water resources.
