Drive the very narrow and windy road over the divide, then turn left on E 4100 N. Drive 1.3 miles then veer left onto N 3300 E. Turn left again at 5950 North, following the signs for Ogden Nordic. Drive to the very end of the road, where Ogden Nordic is located.

Less than a mile in, and the views are amazing! That mountain in the distance is Powder Mountain, the downhill ski resort.
This views is the East facing slope of Ben Lomond Peak.
Finally, ready for some downhill!
Loving these groomed trails! A team of 26 volunteers keeps these tracks nice and groomed 6 days a week.
The temperatures were hanging around 40-45F, so the snow was staring to get nice and soft.
Just around this bend, however, there was a shaded section of trail that was really icy. I didn’t feel super comfortable skiing down it so I took my skis off – check out my YouTube video below for how that turned out.
Ogden Nordic is well known for having a lot of moose in the area. It’s a very wet area with several meadows, so they like to hang out here. This is another reason why dogs need to be leashed, for in case you come across the active wildlife here.
Amazing view of both Ben Lomond & Willard Peak!
I ended up skiing 7.6 miles! I also got a bad face and neck sunburn – I didn’t carry or event think about putting sunblock on because it’s still winter, but now it’s in my pack! No more red face for me haha!
