Destination guide

Eden sits at the base of the pistes

Powder hounds, climbers, adventurers, and family ski vacationers have been setting their sights on little Eden for decades. Nestled in the shadow of the James Peak powder bowl, it's home to the Powder Mountain ski resort and its 2,500-foot vertical descent. And if that sounds like a few too many "powders" for just one place to have, that's because the snow here really is that reliable. Of course, Eden vacation rentals have more than black diamond runs on the doorstep. They also overlook the rugged Wasatch Range and its trails, and come steeped in a quaint, Cowboy-esque vibe.

Things to do

Eden's pistes a-calling

Ski in, ski out Eden vacation rentals pepper the tops of James Mountain just to the north of town. They offer unrivaled access to the pistes of Powder Mountain – one of the top resorts in all of Utah – so you can be the first carving through the pillows of the Wasatch Range each morning. Alternatively, other stays dot the streets of the town itself, where wholesome Carver's Cove Petting Farm beckons the younger ones with its friendly mules and critters, and hearty little Rocky Mountain grills sizzle with hefty steaks and Americana meals.

Activities

Get the snow gear ready when in Eden

Salopettes? Check. Ski boots? Check. Thermals? Check. You're just about ready to hit Eden with that lot. Thanks to its duo of acclaimed alpine ski resorts, it's definitely a destination where the snow gear will come in handy. Of course, summer brings its own array of outdoor pursuits, from heart-thumping mountain biking expeditions along the Wasatch Front to long hiking excursions up James Peak. And for those who've had their fill of adventure? There's always the town's spas and New Age yoga centers for healing sessions and meditation classes.

Weather

Calling powder hounds to Eden

With the Wasatch Range of Utah usually doused in fresh plumes of snow throughout the whole winter, you can rest assured that Powder Mountain will live up to its name. If you've come to ride the pistes of that great resort, then you can search for Eden vacation rentals close to the chairlifts between December and April – the typical ski season. For hiking, mountain biking, and other highland enjoyments, any time after May and before October means the best conditions for hitting the great outdoors without the fur coats.

Natural features

Nestled in the mountains in Eden

Eden has an enviable seat right in the heart of Utah's Rocky Mountains. It's perched on the edge of Pineview Reservoir, where pretty sand banks offer plenty of sunbathing spots in the summertime, and kayak rentals dot the shore. To the west is the Wasatch Front, cutting the town off from Ogden beyond and awash with bald peaks where hiking trails crisscross the ridges. The Wasatch Mountains begin in earnest to the north, crashing up to Sharp Mountain and James Peak, where the snow plumes await the winter riders.
