Yep powder country at PowMow is worth it alone, long insane powder runs and a bus to pick you up and bring you back to the lifts when you finally get to the bottom.

There is NO SNOW HERE! Conditions will suck and it will be icy. Expect a lot of crowds since not much terrain is open anywhere.

I dunno, Carm! Yeah, you definitely need to pack your grub and beers for Snowbasin, but the Strawberry side of the mountain offers some great runs, where stashes can be found for weeks. The nice thing about a commercial "resort" is that the Powder Hounds are too snobby for it (because it is so "high class") and stick with places like PowMo, and the real ski snob tourists stay on the groomers. That means there is a ton of powder to be found. Plus, the gondola on the Strawberry side may be the most beautiful lift ride I've ever experienced! Nevermind the exquisite outhouse!

Powder Mountain is great...but the fact that they tout so much terrain, but more than half of it is accessible by cat only...for an added fee? That turned me off real fast!

True but the cat rides are only like 10$ pretty tough to beat that but it's all hike able so kinda a waste of money, still to me nothing beats powder country on a good snow day\week.

Yea the 7000 acres thing is deceiving but I love it, get a backpack throw in a lunch and flask and go earn your turns best inbound backcountry of any resort anywhere IMO
