I am quite familiar with Ogden and the surrounding attractions. I am happy to help if I am able.
Proximity to the natural attractions of the East Bench and the cultural attractions of downtown make this area of Ogden a rich resource.

Other things to note
For your benefit we propose a skiers 5 day vacation itinerary.
Day 1 (Skiing ) Drive 1.3 miles to the iconic skiing Ogden bus stop, complete with skier statues at the NE intersection of 24th Street and Washington, (with parking just E of the intersection on 24th St) and take the 674 bus line to Powder Mountain (rated #1 value resort in the West in 2017 Ski Magazine). Pow Mow is a good first day resort because you may want to get used to skiing powder or you want to ski powder, but don’t want to destroying your legs on the first day. Enjoy mingling with the fiercely loyal PowMow skiers and staff on the bus and the spectacular view from your window seat while going through Ogden Canyon. Taking the bus to Pow Mow is almost always a good idea: You are spared a drive which can be challenging.
Enjoy yourself at the Timberline Lounge, and, since you are taking a relaxing bus ride home, enjoy yourself a little more than were you driving from PowMow. Feast at the Timberline Steakhouse (closed on Sundays) which is decorated with a skiing theme.
Day 2 (Skiing ) Go to the same iconic bus stop, but take the 675 to Snowbasin, site of the 2002 Olympic downhill. Take in a breathtaking view and lunch at the John Paul Lodge. Snow Basin is rated #2 in the West for dining in 2017 Ski Magazine. While Snow Basin has two separate mountain experiences which are both serviced by gondolas, they have the top ten chair lift in the West in John Paul which services primarily expert terrain and even has the locals bushed before lunch.
If your chute skiing is bombproof and the snowpack is deep enough and the powder sweet enough, the out of bounds terrain above the John Paul tram will be a treat. Warning: those with dependents and without a good life insurance policy have been advised not to ski down on the outbound side and to opt for the inbounds side or return down the tram. Since the finger chutes are out of bounds, any medical services you might require from the ski patrol would also be on you. An awe–inspiring inbound chute, Lone Tree—clearly visible from the top of the Needles Gondola and accessible from the Strawberry Gondola—could be a safer alternative to the JP fingers.
Experience the royal bathrooms, featuring Italian Carrera marble, of Snowbasin, ranked #1 in the country by many.
For dinner, treat yourself to Japanese dinner at Kobe or Tona Sushi (7 min drive).
Day 3. (recovery) Take the day off and get a deep tissue therapy message at Structura Body Therapies. Only an 11 minute drive, but schedule your appointment in advance. The massage can be either gentle or therapeutic. Hard core skiers will want the 1 ½ hour long therapy session and get your kinks worked out along with some recommended stretching exercises. You can also get a referral to someplace near your home where you could get a similar structural massage.
Get a little exercise on those legs and check out the beautiful Ogden Historic 25th Street shopping area.
Day 4 (Skiing ) Take a 7 minute drive to Ogden Station. From Ogden Station, take the train to
Day 5 (Skiing ) Take an hour and 15 minute drive to either Park City Mountain or Deer Valley Ski Resort. Opt for Park City if you want to do park skiing and halfpipe. Opt for Deer Valley if you want Ski Magazine’s third ranked overall ski resort in the West and Utah’s highest rated ski resort. The St. Regis hotel at Deer Valley sports a sports a funicular. Who knows? You may even cross paths with the legendary Ted Ligety there. The food and service there is legendary.
