killclimbz Hahaha! The shitters are awfully nice at Snowbasin. I think the Virgin Mary would be proud to take a dump there.

To me Ogden is more like a sprawled out blue collar kind of industrial/mining town , old school mountain town maybe. Historic Main Street has some neat places to stop in and see eat/drink/party but nothing life changing also most of the usual chain places....finding a sports bar won't be an issue. nothing to see at those two resorts once the lifts stop spinning it's only a 30-40 minute drive to Ogden for cheap beds and food.

Crazy awesome terrain at PowMow, careful if you decide to drive all the way to the top, powder country is epic one of my favorite inbounds places to ride anywhere(ride the free bus back to the top bring a PBRTB for the wait) andSnowbasin, 3-4 comfy super high speed gondolas cover almost the entire mtn, The best views and longest runs in all of Utah. ......you won't find two resorts more different than each other yet equally cool. Best public bathrooms of any resort/hotels anywhere they won some kind of award last year something.

JHeagz We're looking for an area w/ some bars/restaurants...probably won't stay out very late, but something to do after boarding would be nice. Also it will be superbowl weekend when we're there, so we'd love to be near a sports bar. As far as accommodations, we're a group of guys, so we're cool w/ a cheap motel. As long as there is heat and hot water the cheaper the better.

I think we're sold on Pow Mow and basin, so the question is which town is better?

snowvols Toured at Basin a few weeks ago. Place is pretty sick for sure. The area to the right I forgot the name of the chute but where the gazex tubes are is nice and steep. Are you coming down to the city at all? What kind of atmosphere are you looking for?

JHeagz Thanks guys...The powder cats are the reason why I want to check it out. Keeping my fingers crossed that UT gets some good snow this year and we can forget about 2011/2.

Neednsnow, are you suggesting that Ogden is sketchy or just that people get a little rowdy? Do they have a good bar/restaurant scene? We'll be a crew of 5 dudes, so not really concerned about people picking fights.

hikeswithdogs The Ogden resorts(PowMow and SnowBasin) are my favorite places to ride in Utah

Don't forget about the cheap cat rides at PowMow, WAY worth your money
