Sunset Magazine Touts Adventure in Ogden

Sunset is out with an interesting listing Ogden Utah as one of 10 places you've got to see

The subhead: Here are our latest picks, from an unspoiled beach in Mexico to Utah's newest adventure town

Sunset places Ogden at number 9 on the list and says it is, "For adrenaline junkies"

"Locals have always considered Ogden their very own playground. But being home to heaps of fresh snow (about 500 inches of the real deal annually), three sprawling ski resorts (Powder Mountain, Snowbasin, and Wolf Mountain), and all sorts of daredevil sports (whitewater kayaking, rock climbing, mountain biking), it was only a matter of time till word spread about just how good life is in the western foothills of the Wasatch Range. And spread to big-name brands such as Salomon, Atomic, and Suunto, no less, whose outdoorsy employees are moving here in droves — and bringing their friends — transforming the little town that hosted 2002 Olympic curling and downhill events into one of the West's hottest adventure spots. Just in case Ogden's great outdoors isn't enough, there's the new Salomon Center (801/399-4653), a $20 million 'high-adventure' hub."
