Just an hour north of Salt Lake City, Powder Mountain’s Snowcat Powder Safari picks up guests near the main lodge in one of two 10-person cats. With access to 3,000 acres of backcountry terrain and an average annual snowfall of 500 inches, knee-deep powder turns are a guarantee. After nine to 15 runs, head back to Salt Lake or book a condo at Wolf Lodge (from $110). $425; includes bag lunch and avalanche safety gear.
