Uphill access by means of skinning, snowshoeing and hiking has gained popularity at PPK in recent years. Pass Powderkeg Ski Area welcomes and supports individuals seeking to exercise and enjoy the quiet mountain setting.
Utilization of Pass Powderkeg for uphill activity requires user to have an Uphill Access Pass. The nominal fee ($25/season) is used to help cover costs of maintaining an uphill skin track for users, signage and waiver program. For users that hold a Downhill Season Pass, uphill access is included. We are aiming to provide an easy to use trail that mitigates potential traffic collisions between Pass Powderkeg operations and guests. With the increase in uphill traffic over the past few seasons, we hope to offer a great route up the ski hill that provides our community with a safer option than uphill travel on downhill runs.
