Ogden, UT was recently featured by Outside magazine as America’s 3rd Best Adventure town for 2008 and by National Geographic Adventure as one of the “Best places to Live + Play in the U.S.”
Ogden offers access to some of The Greatest Snow on Earth®. Not only does the mountain terrain provide for the very best skiing conditions, but the price and value of the experience is unbeatable. Three of the best ski resorts in Utah are located in the Ogden valley: Snowbasin, Powder Mountain and Wolf Creek Utah ski resort. Each of these resorts is within one hour’s drive from the Salt Lake International Airport. Each of Ogden Valley’s ski resorts has improved on their value offerings for this upcoming ski season.
Ski Magazine has rated Powder Mountain in the Top 2 for snow and in the Top 3 for value for two years running. Powder Mountain is increasing its value even further by taking steps to ensure that everyone can enjoy the sport of skiing. Powder Mountain is implementing the following changes:
· Rolling back the price of a night lift pass to 2002 rates. An adult night pass will be $15 and a child (7-12) will be $12.
· Starting night operations one hour early at 3:00 p.m., so that guests can enjoy a few hours of sunlight.
· The shuttle bus from Eden will be free of charge.
Snowbasin is one of Utah’s luxury resorts where guests can explore the finer side of skiing, accommodations and gourmet cuisine. Ski magazine ranked Snowbasin, No. 1 for lifts, No. 2 for on-mountain food and No. 3 for customer service for North American ski resorts. Snowbasin’s exquisite lodges provide a haven for skiers to relax throughout the day. Value offerings for 2008-2009 include the following:
· Vacation package deals starting around $685. Several packages are offered to include accommodations, lift tickets and food credits.
· Twelve lifts, including two high-speed gondolas, two handle tows, one magic carpet and two detachable quads including the new beginner Little Cat lift. Together these lifts accommodate over 14,500 skiers per hour, meaning less time in line and more skiing.
· Value pass for skiers who want to ski three out of five consecutive days. The cost totals $159 reflecting a savings of $27.
