With Skiing Experience Preserved, Attention Turns to Idealistic Town Under Construction
SPRING 2017 · PRESS RELEASE
Summit at Powder Mountain’s Main Street will embody an appreciation for sustainability, social entrepreneurship, connection, and collaboration and will feature eateries, juice bars, shops, public art, hotels, and much more. There are also plans to include micro-lofts and apartments, which will complement affordable housing for artists, social entrepreneurs, and researchers.
Helping to establish the ethos of the town is the Summit Institute, a non-profit convening leaders and organizations addressing emerging ideas and innovative approaches to the most pressing challenges of our times. Summit Institute was founded in 2015 and has collaborated with the Gates Foundation, the Sorensen Center for Global Impact, the White House Office of Social Innovation, Brookings Institution and more, bringing leading thinkers to the mountain for hosted gatherings year-round. The Summit Institute has communal co-working and dining space, a 300 person conference and concert venue, and an après-ski and event center, which may also be booked for private events.
Imagine a place that embodies the community and culture of Summit year round. A place that is largely unknown, untouched, and as inspiring as the people who gather there.
The Summit Powder Mountain development will consist of more than 500 ski accessible homesites connected to a village core of similar scale that includes cultural amenities and miles of walking, biking, and nordic trails.
Perched high between the towns of Eden and Paradise, Summit Powder Mountain is the permanent home of Summit on nearly 10,000 acres in the Wasatch mountain range.
Stay informed and inspired.
