In October, POWDR founder and chairman John Cumming was featured on the season debut of Ski Utah’s "Last Chair" podcast. For more than an hour, Cumming got candid with host Tom Kelly about growing up on the slopes of Snowbird, his days as a mountain guide, why POWDR is missing its E, the impact of community and family, and how the mountains shaped his life.

Fresh off its September construction industry award for renovation and restoration, Snowbird's SeventyOne restaurant has won two "Best" awards from the Commercial Interior Design Association (IIDA) Intermountain Chapter, including the Peoples' Choice Award and the Merit Award in the "Play" category. "Best" stands for Brilliantly Executed Spaces and Thinking.
Woodward Park City has been named a Utah Business 2020 Green Business award winner in the "Green Business Leadership" category. The program honors organizations and individuals that have made an effort to promote sustainability within Utah industry. WWPC was awarded for its efforts to protect the environment in its planning and build stage as well as in ongoing operations.
Snowbird ranked number three among the top five ski resorts in North America, according to an algorithm created by ZRankings.com. The algorithm factors in all the things important to the ski resort crowd—vertical drop, quality and quantity of snow, acreage, lift system, ease of access, and the vibe of the local town.
At POWDR the well-being of our employees is one of our top priorities, which is why we are pleased to provide them with a variety of support resources including the SupportLinc employee assistance program and the Lighthouse anonymous reporting hotline for employees.
Here at POWDR, we make it a priority to protect the health, wellness, and safety of our staff. For this reason, we’re excited to introduce a new tool to provide daily COVID-19 screenings with a mobile, text-based system for all employees to complete their daily symptom check.
The 2020/2021 ski season has arrived! Strange and surreal as it may feel, we’re excited to be back at our resorts delivering memorable experiences, enhancing people’s lives, and having fun doing it.
While Mother Nature sometimes likes to challenge us with opening days, our guests, staff and communities know POWDR is committed to the health and safety of all who come visit us.
