These 10,000 acres of champagne powder in the Wasatch Mountains are just minutes from the airport, but miles away from an ordinary ski resort. In fact, Powder Mountain has quickly become the select startup ski town for C-suite elites–drawing the likes of Richard Branson and Netflix CEO Reed Hastings among its early real estate investors.

“Powder Mountain’s Summit is set under a brilliant, open sky, looking out at 10,000 acres. Each home is a work of art providing a contemporary, sustainable aesthetic,” says Melanie Sanchez of the Abbi Agency.

Summit at Powder Mountain is the brain-child of the four young tech entrepreneurs who founded the summit series-a networking group whose past speakers have included Amazon’s Jeff Bezos and President Bill Clinton.

A Different Breed of Alpine Architecture

Contemporary sustainable homes in a heritage modern style have been designed along the slopes by leading architects such as Studio Ma, Olson Kundig and Warren Lloyd, to name a few.

Tom Buttgenbach, President and CEO of 8minute Solar Energy and a Summit Powder Mountain homeowner says, “having a home on top of a mountain with incredible views, walkable access to the heart of the village and ski-in-ski-out is unique in any ski resort,” Buttgenbach especially enjoys the communal aspects available to him on Powder Mountain where “communicating with other like-minded people in this community [is] not only a smart financial investment but also an investment into intangible values for myself and my family.

With 57 new homesites available at the Overlook on Powder Mountain, Summit is hoping to attract legacy buyers looking for not just ski-in-ski-out access from their front door, but all of the inspiration and intentional community building the village has to offer.

For vacationers, Powder Mountain provides the alternative to the too-rustic log-cabins or over-crowded faux-swiss chalets that pepper the mountains of the world’s most popular ski destinations. Instead, visitors here enjoy healthy food prepared by Michelin star chefs and listen to live music or TED-style speakers in one of four distinct lodges scattered about the property from the valley to the peak.

Powder Mountain seeks to provide a premier powder experience by capping the number of lift tickets allowed on its nine ski lifts. Heli-skiing and cat skiing are also available along with a complimentary tour of the resort for each guest.

The Summit at Powder Mountain is an intriguing concept, combining fresh powder in a remote setting alongside powerful people and events focused on purposeful living. Will Utah’s freshest tracks become the new trend in luxury getaways? Go ski for yourself.
