TRIP PLAN­NING

SKI - - TRAVEL -

Stay

A stately ho­tel from Og­den’s hey­day as a rail­road hub, The

Bigelow is cen­tral to the city. The Hamp­ton Inn and Suites might be a chain, but it oc­cu­pies a re­stored his­toric build­ing with spec­tac­u­lar views of the moun­tains and city.

Eat

In Og­den, head to Slack­wa­ter Pizza for cre­ative wood-fired flat­bread pies and a mas­sive beer se­lec­tion. Do not try the ghost pep­per hot sauce. If you do, con­sider your­self warned. Nearby, The An­gry Goat Pub & Kitchen has a great menu and more than 200 beers on tap. The An­gry Goat Balls— yummy fried risotto—are an ex­cel­lent après snack.

Drink

Al­leged, now a multi-floor bar and club, refers to the build­ing’s past as a brothel. Down­stairs it’s a DJ dance club; up­stairs is a rooftop jazz bar. Yes, Hell is a hot spot for live mu­sic, good food, and a friendly crowd of Og­den lo­cals who like to get down and boo­gie.

Play

So­cial Axe Throw­ing gives you a chance to take out your ag­gres­sion by throw­ing axes at a tar­get in a friendly com­pe­ti­tion with your ski chums.
