Ogden Outdoor Adventure Show 263 - Epic Dump
Hope everyone had a stellar Christmas break with friends and family. As we all know, it's been dumping in Utah, and this Winter has been a dream for resorts, backcountry skiing, snowshoeing, skate-skiing, and, well, I even saw a pic circulating Facebook of a dogsled team mushing through downtown Ogden - love it!
Here's our first Ogden Outdoor Adventure Show of 2017. I would like to personally thank everyone who listens. We do this for fun and because we love it. Our hope is that we can give you some additional information and inspiration to get out and adventure in and around Ogden.
If you have events, news, adventure stories, or would like to be a guest on the show, please tweet us @ogdenadventure, or email me: email@example.com.
Enjoy the show, and we're stoked to bring you the OOA Show for another year. Cheers!

QUOTE OF THE WEEK
“Believe me, you never want to experience that feeling of regret when you don’t acknowledge that life is fleeting and precious. I never want to feel that again! It may be cliche but life is sweet. Everyday you don’t follow your dream you lose another precious day. Don’t let it slip away. LIVE YOUR LIFE WITH PASSION
- Pat Parkinson
