The first step in planning the perfect luxury ski vacation is choosing a resort. Which ski resort you choose will have the biggest impact on your skiing or snowboarding experience. Choosing an overcrowded resort will no doubt mean more time spent waiting in line for lifts and fighting for space on runs. 

Powder Mountain offers a different experience. At more than 8,464 acres, it’s the largest ski resort in the U.S. It sees more than 500 inches of natural snow, earning it the title of the “Greatest Snow on Earth.” Add in the fact that the resort limits the number of daily lift tickets and seasonal passes for sale, this resort is the best place to enjoy wide open slopes and an incredible skiing and snowboarding experience.

Another big benefit of staying at Powder Mountain is the chance to book luxury ski lodging. But how much of an impact can your lodging have on your time on the slope? Keep reading to find out.

Enjoy Ski In Ski Out Benefits

One big benefit of booking luxury ski lodging at Powder Mountain is the chance to enjoy ski in ski out benefits. This means the chance to maximize your time on the slopes and allow you to get on the slopes early in the day and stay late. If you want to return to your upscale chalet to warm up in the afternoon or to grab a quick lunch, it’s easy to do.

Take Advantage of Slope Perks

One of the ways that Powder Mountain retains its exclusive, uncrowded appeal is by limiting the number of daily lift tickets and annual passes for sale each year. If you do score a ticket or lift pass, you’ll definitely enjoy this perk when you hit the slopes. But if you want to plan a last minute visit or miss your chance to get a ticket, this can be a big drawback, and could even stand in the way of planning your own Powder Mountain vacations.

But when you book luxury ski lodging at the resort, you’ll get one big benefit; guaranteed lift tickets. This means you won’t have to worry about not being able to get a ticket to hit the slopes.

Ski Equipment Storage

If you’ve ever planned a long weekend or even a week on the slopes with family or friends, you know that wet ski and snowboarding equipment can make a mess. You’ll spend each day piling up wet gear and trying to find room for everything. It can quickly become a big hassle.

But when you book luxury ski lodging at Powder Mountain, many of our rental properties come with purpose-built gear storage. Built-in storage, cubbies, and even boot warmer racks make it easy to stash your gear each day without dealing with a wet mess in your living space.

Hot Tubs, Saunas, and Other Resort Perks

Depending on which condo or upscale chalet you choose at Powder Mountain, you’ll enjoy other big perks that can have a huge impact on your luxury ski vacation. Access to community hot tubs and saunas are great for soaking your sore muscles before another day of shredding the slopes. A big wood burning fireplace is great not only for warming up but also for enjoying some quality time with family and friends while you swap stories about your days.

Some of the vacation rentals at Powder Mountain offer an extra dose of luxury. Spring Park 8492 is one of our most luxurious properties. This upscale chalet sleeps up to eight guests across three bedrooms. On the ground floor, you’ll find ski racks in the garage great for hanging up wet gear. The second and third floor feature an open kitchen, designer furniture, and multiple bedrooms with private bathrooms. 

It’s the fourth floor that makes this luxury ski lodging so special. Up a set of spiral stairs, you’ll find the Apres Ski room. Whip up a cocktail at the bar and take in the incredible display of stars or views of the slopes from the roof-top patio. Or, take a soak in the custom-built hot tub.
