When the resorts have been skied out and there’s no powder to be found, head over to Park City Powder Cats for a second helping. Located 25 minutes outside of Park City at Thousand Peaks Ranch, more than 40,000 acres of privately owned bowls, glades and peaks are divvied up among a limited number of backcountry skiers and snowboarders. Carve up fresh powder stashes in the high Uinta Mountains by means of Snowcat skiing, heli-skiing or, new for this year, Cat-assisted ski and splitboard tours. Whatever you choose, you’ll rack up a full day of powder runs and maintain plenty of energy after refueling over a gourmet picnic lunch.
