Welcome to Ogden City, where It is all within reach: from hiking and skiing through the alpine peaks of the 2002 downhill and super G to kayaking through the middle of town, a world of high adventure recreation awaits!

Ogden City, situated on the east face of Wasatch Mountains, has a unique story: Initially a mountain man trading center, Ogden grew rapidly after becoming "The Depot" at the junction of the intercontinental railroad. Ogden's selection as a major venue city for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games has again focused attention on Ogden as a recreational Mecca.

Combining Ogden’s world class recreation with a restored historic business district featuring distinctive shopping and dining, some of the best museums in the country, and outstanding cultural events, you have a city not to be missed.

New companies have shown great confidence in Ogden. Adam’s Aircraft, Descente North America, Goode Skis, Kahuna Creations, JDH group, and others to be announced have brought their national headquarters and facilities to Ogden to take advantage of Ogden’s resources, relative low cost, well educated employees, and unique geographical ability to provide easy access to air, truck, and rail transportation.
Welcome to Utah, paradise for outdoor enthusiasts! From National Parks to ski resorts and golf courses, beautiful Park City to historic Temple Square, sunny St George to bustling Salt Lake City to tranquil Lake Powell, Utah will surprise you with its variety.
Whether you come to ski or snowboard "The Greatest Snow on Earth," to mountain bike Slickrock in Moab, to take a summer whitewater rafting splash down Cataract Canyon, or to visit the Old West with a tour of outlaw hideouts and stickups, Utah has adventure waiting.
