POWDER RIDGE CLOSED – Powder Ridge Ski Area remains closed since the area closed mid season 2005-2006 pending the sale of the ski area.
A resort that's found its niche and stuck to it: wide-open skiing for beginners and late-night fun for everyone. – The Scene
Not along ago, Powder Ridge was one of the nation's true late-night skiing spots; New York and New Jersey skiers loved it for its 3am closing time. Although some feel let down, the lifts still run every weeknight until 9pm.
The resort offers a 500-foot vertical drop of wide-open slopes. They go wide and with the fall line, providing beginners a safe, easy place to figure out the sport. A nice bonus is the children's terrain garden--a slope that is fenced off and fun for tots. There is a snowboard park and a few runs that are slightly steep and narrow, allowing novices a safe taste of an advanced trail. There's also an expanded snow-tubing park.
