Though it’s only 40 miles north of the Salt Lake International Airport, Ogden remains a hidden gem when it comes to staying and playing near two of Utah’s best mountains, Snowbasin (opening Nov. 28) and Powder Mountain (opening Dec. 6). Need proof? Look toward the Hilton Garden Inn in downtown Ogden this season, which is offering a ski-and-stay package that’s cheaper on weekends than on weekdays.

Book an urban ski bum retreat at the Hilton Garden Inn, and take advantage of city and mountain life. With packages starting at $125 per person, per night on weekends (or $140 on weekdays), you’ll be greeted with a welcome packet that includes boot warmers and sunscreen, one-day lift tickets to Snowbasin Resort, a round trip ticket for Ogden’s ski shuttle and free ski storage at the hotel. (Discounted lift tickets to Powder Mountain are also available.)

For a longer getaway, book three nights and two days of skiing and save even more dough with rates starting at $110 per person, per day.

If you’re looking for a new way to après after a day at Snowbasin, head back to Ogden and get your fix of indoor skydiving or rock climbing at the Salomon Center, just a few feet away from the hotel.

The lift and lodging package at the Hilton Garden Inn is valid Nov. 25 - April 15, 2014. Call 801-399-2000 for more information
