Under the headline “Mini-
mountain range near Kimball growing,” this photo appeared on page 1 of the Tri-County News 30 years ago. No, we don’t have mountains, but Powder Ridge is the closest thing to them. The project 30 years ago added 30 feet to the top of the hill, extending the Gunpowder and High Noon runs by 30 feet. This was the second such project at Powder Ridge, with the earlier one building up the top of Powder Puff and North Run.
The caption that ran 30 years ago read, “Dirt being moved by heavy equipment to build up height on ski runs at Powder Ridge Ski Area, north of Kimball.”
