Reed Hastings, now the new majority owner of Powder Mountain, has invested $100 million to enhance the resort, signaling a new era for the mountain resort known for its daily lift ticket caps and uncrowded visitor experience.

This investment aims to improve the skier experience by expanding skiable terrain, creating new Nordic and snowshoe trails, and upgrading infrastructure and amenities.

New changes for the winter of 2023/2024 include:

DMI Guided Backcountry Terrain: Access to 500 acres of challenging backcountry terrain known as DMI will be opened, accessible only through guided experiences.

New Trails and Activity Center: A cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trail network near the Village lift, as well as an on-trail warming hut and the Launch Pad Yurt activity hub.

Moonbike Tours: Guests can take guided moonbike tours on electric snow bikes to explore the mountain.

Beginner Experience Upgrades: Major upgrades to the Sundown Lodge area, including a new "magic carpet" lift, terrain re-grading, snowmaking infrastructure, and a temporary ski school facility.

Affordable Night Skiing: $19 night skiing lift tickets are available every night.

In the coming months, additional improvements, including new lifts set for installation in summer ‘24 will continue Powder Mountain’s evolution.
