Ogden Outdoor Adventure Show 174 - Weber Pathways Trail Mixer

Access to miles of scenic well-kept trails minutes from downtown Ogden takes a team of dedicated individuals to maintain. Weber Pathways is a non-profit organization dedicated to planning, promoting, constructing and protecting Weber County non-motorized trails.

We are committed to the idea that non-motorized network of public pathways significantly contribute to our community’s economic vitality and quality of life. -

Clinking of glasses and the pitter-patter of late summer rain welcomed this year's annual Weber Pathways Trail Mixer at Snowbasin Resort. Attendees were greeted by Weber State Cheerleaders doing stunts in exchange for raffle tickets, tables of outdoor gear for the live and silent auctions, and live music. The fundraiser sold out raising a significant amount of money to help build and maintain local trails.

This coming Friday however, we're broadcasting live from Snowbasin. 

Below is the first 10 minutes of Episode 173, Backpacking.

Ogden Outdoor Adventure Show 172 - Pepsi Invasion

"I didn't know there was a Grounds on 25th Street, we should come walk down here more often,"  - heard someone say while we were playing one of the Nurture the Creative Mind pianos. This is what I like about events like this. To me, the worth doesn't lie in a free concert or swag parade, but rather in giving people a reason to revisit H25, give local biz some love, and realize Ogden really is awesome! Thanks Pepsi!!"
