Powder King

Q1: What were your first impressions Powder King?
Chris: The powder lasts all day. You can do fresh pow laps right next to your own ski tracks from the run before. That’s rare so I loved it!

Q2: Who was your best local resource for info?
Chris: The locals you meet right on the chair and Tbar. Every time I have visited Powder King I have met different locals that share their powder stashes with me.

Q3: What did you find most surprising/unexpected about Powder King?
Chris: That there are no crowds so you get this feeling of having the mountain to yourself. That really lets you ski the powder without having to worry about always beating someone to an area. Instead of saying “no friends on a powder day” it felt more like “Friends on a Powder day” as Powder King does not get skied out on greasy snow days.

Q4: What was the most Instagram-worthy moment or location at Powder King?
Chris:When the clouds clear the top of the Tbar has amazing views. When it’s snowing in the trees as you will get those powder face shots!

Q5: What would make you go back again and again?
Chris: The Powder and the People. Hard to beat at Powder King!
