By Buddy Blouin
Take a trip to Mt. Ogden, and you’ll find no shortage of adventure. Nothing quite embodies this like the Snowbasin Resort. It’s a great balance of modern comforts mixed with the simplicity of nature, which is one of the reasons why Utah is so highly regarded by many. There are concerts and festivals, mini-golf and hiking, year-round events including extreme sports, and, of course, lodging and dining options. You can get active before blowing it all on a beautiful brunch, push your athleticism to its limits, or simply go to get away. Here’s some information to get you started and to help you get the most out of your trip.
