Ogden Valley’s most obvious winter recreation opportunities lie with the three resorts that encircle the area: Nordic Valley, Powder Mountain, and Snowbasin Resort. All three have ski/snowboard rental shops and offer lessons for newbies.
If you’re looking for something a bit more serene, head to Diamond Peak Mountain Sports for a huge selection of rental equipment including cross-country and skate skis, snowshoes, and fat bikes. They can point you to the best locations based on current conditions, but North Fork Park and the Ogden Nordic Center should definitely be considerations.
Any visit to Ogden Valley should include a stop at the Shooting Star Saloon, This cozy burger-and-beer spot is the oldest continually operating bar west of the Mississippi. Other favorite dining spots in Ogden Valley include Mad Moose Cafe, Carlos & Harleys, and Eats of Eden.
Cap off your day with "Après the Compass Way." Compass Rose Lodge has developed a safe, outdoor après ski event that includes live music, food trucks, and firepits. They've successfully done three such events so far this season and have plans for another on February 13th. Check their social media channels for additional dates.
If food trucks, fires and fun aren't your thing, stroll through the small shops at the Eden Center and pick up some great skincare products from Simply Eden, or head to New World Distillery where you can directly purchase any of their award-winning, handcrafted spirits, then pull up a barstool at the Saddlebag Saloon for a quick nightcap.
