The best got better, part IV

Drumroll please...... the rest!

Beaver Mountain

Recent upgrades to Beaver Mountain’s food service
have caused more skiers to gather in the Resort’s traditional A-frame
lodge for lunch. As a result, Beaver Mountain will make over $300,000
in improvements to the lodge adding additional seating to better
accommodate guests.

Brian Head Resort

Brian Head Resort, in southern Utah, has been busy
putting final touches on the major expansion which combined their two
separate mountains in the 2007-08 winter season. Details include new
rock work on the retaining walls, additional slope grading and mountain

Powder Mountain

Powder Mountain has added a new Mountain Adventure
Center located near the Timberline Lodge which will house all of Powder
Mountain’s adventure programs including Snowcat Powder Safaris,
Mountain Adventure Tours and the Snow Sports School. Last season,
Powder Mountain started all-day guided snowcat tours called Snowcat
Powder Safari. Due to the popularity of the program, the terrain
available via the snowcat has been increased 100 percent to 2,000-plus

Restaurants in all three lodges have been
renovated to improve guest flow and to allow additional menu options.
All changes are designed to minimize the time guests spend off the
slopes on a powder day.

Powder Mountain is also taking steps to ensure
everyone can enjoy and afford the sport of skiing. The price of a night
lift pass will be rolled back to 2002-rates.  An adult night pass will
be $15 and a child (7 – 12) will be $12. Night operations will start
one hour earlier than previous years, at 3:00pm, so guests can enjoy a
few hours of sunlight.


Snowbasin Resort has replaced the Little Cat lift
which services beginner terrain, with a new detachable quad chair lift
starting above Earl’s Lodge and ending at the upper parking lot. The
new lift will span 1,578 feet in length with a vertical rise of 173.5
feet. A 1,000 foot per minute line speed will yield a carrying capacity
of 2,600 people per hour.

The new lift will better accommodate the beginning
skier by reducing the intimidation from downhill skier traffic and
easing loading and unloading due to the detachable lift's design.

Sundance Resort

Sundance is continuing to preserve its beautiful
protected setting, against a 12,000-foot backdrop of Mount Timpanogos.
Sundance offers 41 runs spread over 500 acres of snow-smothered terrain
suitable for beginning to expert levels. Experts enjoy the steep and
the deep in wide open bowls and narrow gladed chutes, while all can
enjoy our immaculately groomed slopes. Sundance prides itself on being
a place where families can gather and hospitality is a way of life.
Special kids programs and a variety of activities keep the family
smiling all day.

Sundance’s cross country ski center has a full 26
kilometers of daily groomed trails and are available for skating and
classic skiing. Snowshoers can explore Sundance’s terrain on 10
kilometers of dedicated trails through the woods.

Wolf Mountain

Wolf Mountain is an integral part of Wolf Creek
Utah's complete amenity package, offering the best guest experience
available. Major improvements for the 2008-09 season include expanded
beginner learning terrain, a more convenient skier/guest drop off area
and continued improvements to its terrain park. The Wolf Mountain
Learning Center offers the best value in ski and snowboard education,
with the “Get on Board” pass. For only $200, a new skier or snowboarder
can take three lessons with equipment rental and receive a free season
pass at the end of their lesson series.
