Park City Powder Cats operates on the 43,000-acre private Thousand Peaks Ranch near Oakley, and you’ll ski the Western Uinta Mountains from early morning until the sun starts to drop. Prices run $489 during the peak season (January 23 – March 20), or the regular season $459 (January 22 – March 21).

The Powderbirds have been flying skiers around the Wasatch for 40 years now, and they’ve gotten quite good at it. You’ll find some magnificent powder lines, wide open bowls, and snowy glades. Your heart will race you to the bottom of a white mountain and then get a magic carpet back to the top.
It’s pricey, but you’ll remember it forever. Rates run from $1,260 to $1,540 per person or take a private tour for $6,900 per group. Powderbird operates from the Canyons Village base area of Park City Mountain.
