Ogden Outdoor Adventure Show 240 - Feels Like Summer
Mark with Weber Pathways guest co-hosts this episode and covers how to minimize impact from water on trails and provides us with an update on new trails in Ogden Valley. We buzz through the latest upcoming events including a Hoka One One Demo, and for some reason I had the wrong date of the GoPro Mountain Games. The Games are actually June 9-12 in Vail.
The Banyan Collective is emcee'ing the Ogden Art's Festival June 11-12 so everyone should come gather around the Van, pick up some OOA merch, and share a beer with stories of adventure!

Ahhh, it's that time of year again, Summer OR, the greatest party in the outdoor industry.
