Abstract

Located about a dozen miles east of Ogden, Utah, Ogden Valley is considered by many to be one of the most picturesque places in Utah. Fifteen miles long and some five or six miles broad at its widest point, the valley’s open, level fields and numerous, wooded waterways present a striking contrast to the mountains and hills surrounding it. Home to three ski resorts— one of which will host the downhill skiing events in the 2002 Olympics— and scenic Pineview Reservoir, Ogden Valley in recent years has become a vacationer’s paradise, and real-estate developers are hard at work today transforming yesterday’s alfalfa and grain fields into subdivisions and “ranchettes” for the increasingly few people who can afford to live there permanently.
