Mustang Powder Increase Terrain

More Terrain at Mustang Powder for 2009/2010

As a result of a deal with neighbouring Eagle Pass Heli skiing, Mustang Powder now has the use of some crazy cool new terrain. They are also gaining improved access to some old runs which, due to the inefficiency of the snowroad system,  were rarely used.  The real story here  is that this opens up some really big terrain with  long spectacular runs – normally only seen in the heli skiing industry.

So this news comes to us on the first rainy day of the summer. I find this kind of funny 'cause as the skys turned grey this afternoon I started to dream about when the snow is coming... Needless to say, news of expansion plans at Mustang Powder gets us going!
