Since 1953

The Powder House Ski Shop

opened in 1953, the first ski shop in Utah, built on a passion for Alta and deep powder skiing. Over the years we have grown to 5 locations; 4 locations slope side in Alta and one at the base of Big Cottonwood Canyon. We are still family owned and operated, and our passion for skiing, the mountains and spending time outdoors is what fuels us. In our shops you’ll find the best gear to enhance your outdoor experience, custom boot fitting and state of the art ski tuning and repairs. We look forward to your visit!
