The family and I went to Eden, Utah for Christmas. We skied two days at Snowbasin, four days at Powder Mtn, a day and some nights/afternoons at Wolf Mtn. Eden is located 6 miles from Powder Mountain, 14 miles from Snowbasin, and 2 miles from Wolf Mtn. We arrived during a storm that eventually dumped over 30" of snow at the resorts. After that it snowed 2"-8" every night, plus a gift of 16" on Christmas Eve. They were claiming over 60" of snow while we there. I hate to say it, but we skied powder for 7 days.
Here's my take on the three areas:Snowbasin:
Lots of long runs, the two gondolas & John Paul lift rise 2,500'. You can get lots of vertical and on lots of different terrain with these lifts. Some of the nicest restrooms/lodges I've ever used. I skied Snowbasin with 16" of fresh on Christmas Day under bluebird skies, the other day was just cloudy with powder. Wolf Mtn:
Small family ski hill. 1,000' of vertical and is about the size of Whitetail/Timberline, but the slopes have more contour/character than Whitetail. The most expensive holiday rate lift ticket was $27/day (9am-9pm). This place was very popular with families, snowboarders, and the high schoolers. We got 16 free lift tickets to this place with the house we rented.Powder Mtn:
This place lives up to its name. PM seems to be a ski wherever you want kind of place. Very low key lodges.
On Sunday, only 35% of the mtn was open and there couldn't have been more than 100 people at the place. Powder everywhere. Skied Pow within 100' of the lift.
On Wednesday, they opened up Powder Country (1,200 acres of BC) for the first time this season. Powder Country is where they open up the backside of two peaks and let you ski down to an access road where a shuttle would take you back to the upper parking lot. We skied fresh tracks all day long in Powder Country.
On Thursday, The Paradise lift (Main lift at PM, 1,600' vertical) opens for the first time this season. This opens up the rest of the mtn. Fresh tracks all day.
On Friday, Lightening Ridge (700 acres of BC) opens up for the first time this season. $10 snow cat rides to the summit, that would give you access to over 2,100' of vertical in the BC. Did some laps with some locals, fresh tracks all day.
On Saturday, I decided to give up skiing.
