At POWDR, we intend to Play Forever. We believe there is nothing better for the soul than to live a balanced life full of adventure, and we believe those in the future should have the same opportunities we have today. To make this happen, POWDR is committed to doing all we can to protect the environment and support our community.
On this Earth Day, POWDR’s mountain resorts, Woodward destinations, and other adventure experiences are working with local partners to protect the places we live, work and play.
In mid-March, the POWDR family lost two colleagues who helped shape not only our organization but the broader industry as well.
Brent Giles, POWDR’s former chief sustainability officer and an environmental pioneer in the ski industry, passed away surrounded by friends and family on March 14.
POWDR employees and their dependents have the opportunity to tap into a fantastic 50% discount offer at Woodward camps this summer. A POWDR Perk, employees can apply the discount to a one-week stay at any of Woodward's five destinations: Woodward Copper, Woodward West, Woodward Tahoe, Woodward Park City and Woodward PA.
Last month, POWDR’s director of corporate responsibility and Protect Our Winters (POW) board member Laura Schaffer joined Henri Rivers, president of the National Brotherhood of Skiers, for a POW Instagram Live discussion about diversity, equity, representation and climate action in the ski industry.
Schaffer and Rivers discussed the parallels between climate and DEI work in the sense that both require undertaking meaningful cultural work to build toward long-term shifts.
A new partnership between POWDR and PepsiCo is set to deliver innovative new programming to POWDR properties. As the official beverage partner at 10 mountain resorts and five Woodward destinations, PepsiCo will support a variety of unique amenities across POWDR, including mobile restaurants, increased sustainability initiatives and more.
After introducing Ryan Sheckler as Skate Program Designer and Aly Raisman as Gymnastics Program Designer earlier in the year, the Woodward camp team has continued to bolster its sport programs through additional athlete partnerships.
Our Woodward teams constantly impress us. Whether it’s a full-time, year-round employee, or a seasonal staff member who moved to a resort town for the winter, there’s a passion we find in each and every individual. A passion that makes all of this possible.
Recently, the Woodward Tahoe team created a video piece highlighting the men and women directly responsible for the creation of their world-class (and often imitated) terrain parks: the Innovative Environments Team.

Winter 2020/21 presented a fair share of curve balls, but teams across POWDR persevered. From unprecedented needs in guest services, to digging out of record snowstorms, to introducing new business practices around Operation Stay Safe, to errant wildlife, we united and rallied to make the season a success.
"This season required a kind of Army-knife mentality,” says POWDR COO Tim Brennwald. “We had to train people in areas where they might not have worked in the past, but across the board, they were able to step in and pick up the ball.”
