Powderbird Wraps 38th Season

Hello everyone! It’s official. The birds have left the building. We have completed operations for the 2010-2011 season at Powderbird—and it was a great year! We have had the privilege and pleasure to ski with many new faces, as well as old friends, out of Snowbird Ski Resort in Little Cottonwood Canyon, UT and Canyons Resort in Park City, UT. Utah experienced an abundant snowpack this season (currently over 650″ of snowfall to date), making for consistently excellent backcountry conditions. We were able to fly approximately 50% of our season, slightly lower than the previous season’s count. Merchandise sales were up, likely due to increased merchandise options for men and women. Powderbird just wrapped a week-long trip in Greenland as well! Photos from Greenland will be posted shortly. Here are some photos to remember the amazing 2010-2011 season in Utah.

Thanks to everyone for another amazing season! We hope to see all our favorite skiers and boarders again next season, along with some new faces. It’s never too early to book your next Powderbird heli skiing adventure. We’re now taking reservations for 2011-2012, book early to reserve your spot!
