About Community Foundation of Ogden Valley

100% of the Timberline Chairlift Auction profits will be sent directly to the Community Foundation of Ogden Valley (CFOV). The Community Foundation is a philanthropic center serving donors and nonprofits that seek to improve the lives of the community that live, work, or play in Ogden Valley. CFOV's non-profits focus on areas such as recreation, arts, education, health and human services. Check out who their 15 local non-profits are.

A couple weeks ago, the community came out in droves to pay their respects to our beloved Timberline Chairlift, and we were able to raise $62,550 for the CFOV with nail-biting, live chairlift auctions. Powder Mountain is well on it's way to reaching our $100,000 fundraising goal!

Timberline Lift History and Future

The Timberline Lift opened for the 1972/73 season, just one year after Powder Mountain officially opened with Sundown only. Since then, it has played a crucial role in expanding our terrain, connecting Sundown, Hidden Lake, and Timberline terrain zones. Over time, it has grown more sentimental to long-time locals and visitors alike, as it is one of the last lifts of its kind in Utah. Maintaining fixed-grip lifts older than the Godfather has become a difficult task; Powder Mountain is ready for the new era of Timberline.

During the Summer of 2024, the Timberline Lift will be replaced with a quad, significantly increasing carrying capacity. This upgrade will greatly assist Powder Mountain in maintaining non-existent lift lines and uncrowded slopes.
