Get Away Today and our hometown, Ogden, Utah were featured in the Arizona Republic's Sunday Travel Edition yesterday! We are so excited to be offering ski packages in our neck of the woods again this year. Here is the article in case you missed it:
If you’ve been researching your next ski vacation, you may have noticed Ogden, Utah is making headlines again. It’s been named #1 Ski Town in the United States, and Snowbasin, one of its premier ski resorts, has continually made SKI Magazine’s top 10 list for service, lifts, grooming, snow, and on-mountain food. Recently, Ogden was recognized by National Geographic as one of the top 10 emerging Ski Towns – particularly for those searching for powder while avoiding crowds. With three major ski resorts, a cozy downtown with eclectic restaurants and shops, and numerous indoor and outdoor options for adventure, Ogden is an ideal vacation destination.
Get Away Today, headquartered in Ogden and winner of Best of State Travel Agency, shares some of Ogden’s best tips and tricks for a great ski vacation.
Jennifer Dunyon, VP of Communications for Get Away Today, recommends staying downtown. “Ogden has the best of new and old. The new Hilton Garden Inn, a flagship for the brand, is located at The Junction, our new dining and entertainment district that is just steps away from Historic 25th Street. It’s a favorite hangout spot for locals and the perfect place to grab a bite to eat or catch a show after a day on the slopes.” The Junction also features bowling, indoor mini golf and even indoor surfing and sky diving. Many of the shops and galleries on 25th Street close in the early evening, but the Junction stays open much later.
Dunyon also recommends renting a car. The ski resorts are about 25 minutes from the downtown area. Public transportation is available, but you’ll have the most flexibility with your own vehicle. This gives travelers the opportunity to enjoy the scenic canyon drives and explore the surrounding area.
Dunyon’s final tip is to try their local restaurants. “Ogden is known for unique eateries for every taste. Snowbasin offers casual and fine dining when you’re on the mountain. You can’t go wrong with any of their options. When you’re back in town, try Tona for sushi, Slackwater for pizza, Sonora Grill for Mexican, and Rooster’s or the Union Grill for good American cuisine. There are so many delicious choices.”
