What is Ogden Valley
The Ogden Valley is a mountain paradise, located between the Monte Cristo and Wasatch Mountain Ranges. The area is perfect for adventuring into the wilderness with tons of trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. Pineview Reservoir is the heart of the valley and allows for boating, fishing, kayaking, and of course, swimming!
The Valley is composed of Eden, Huntsville, and Liberty. A beautiful 15 min drive from Ogden through a gorgeous canyon leads to the mouth of Pineview Reservoir. Take the north turn turn at the top of the canyon and find yourself in the charming city of Eden, Utah, named for its incredible scenery. Continue straight and discover Huntsville, a beautiful city on the eastern side of Pineview Reservoir. Liberty is just a bit further north of Eden and features North Fork Park.
The Ogden Valley features three ski resorts for winter ski-cations. Nordic Valley is located just 11 minutes north of Pineview Reservoir. Powder Mountain is 21 minutes north east of Nordic Valley. Huntsville’s Snowbasin Ski Resort is 10 minutes south of Pineview and was the host of the 2002 Olympics for the downhill ski and snowboard events.
Apart from the many all-season activities in the Valley, there are tons of events going on year-round. The Ogden Valley Balloon Festival, one of the most celebrated events in all of northern Utah, takes place every August in Eden Park. Hot air balloons soar through the air for three days, taking some into the sky and allowing others to watch them fly. The festival also includes a wide variety of vendors, everything from food trucks to artist booths.
Snowbasin Resort holds the Cinnabar Aprés Concert Series, offering free music in the Earl’s Lounge with some of the finest brews in Utah. Speaking of brews, summer Sundays are also busy at Snowbasin with the Blues, Brews, and BBQs concert series. It’s yet another free concert series from June through September.
