Powder Ridge Winter Recreation Area is located less that one hour North West of Minneapolis Minnesota and directly South 16 miles of St. Cloud. Powder Ridge is located on the southern end of a glacial moraine this allows a fantastic view for miles in all direction from the top of the runs. The over 60 acres of skiing, snowboarding and snowtubing terrain are serviced by three chairlifts and five surface lifts. 100 percent of the runs are lighted for night operations as well as serviced by a huge snowmaking system.

Powder Ridge runs vary from beginner to expert. Teacher's Pet is a great place for beginners to get started while Gun Powder is the experts run of choice. The longest run is Outback which starts out heading west then turns south and finally back to the east for the final leg of the journey.

The main terrain area is serviced by its own high speed rope tow so the maximum number of hits can be achieved as quickly as possible. There are actually two parks in the main terrain area South Park and North Park. Each park is loaded with jumps, boxes and rails. Kowabunga Park our third park is filled with smaller features for those not quite ready for the big stuff.
