Welcome Statement 2008

Utah winters bring the gift of champagne powder renowned as the greatest snow on earth. Although this is one of the most coveted gifts of nature, Utah boasts unique landscapes from slot canyons in Zion National Park to the snowy peaks of the Wasatch Mountains. Here you will find friendly people filled with exuberance and a plethora of accessible world class exploits. While most of the nation is experiencing a recession in real estate, Utah, although slower than in previous years, remains stable and is still a phenomenal value. The state has enjoyed a population growth of 85,000 over the last year with more companies looking to relocate to the area.

Mountain Luxury Real Estate represents properties in the greater Ogden area including the mountain towns of Eden, Huntsville & Liberty surrounding Snowbasin, Powder Mountain, and Wolf Mountain Resorts. Over the last few years our area has experienced great strides due to the combination of visionaries believing in the beauty and accessibility of the region. Companies like Descente, Nidecker Snowboards and Amer Sports companies including Salomon, Atomic and Suunto have all recently made Ogden their home. The area continues to attract new outdoor recreation companies and events including the Winter Outdoor Recreation Show hosting its offsite venue at Snowbasin Resort. As Ogden was once a gem and hub of the west, it is rapidly gaining a reputation as an adventure destination and center for outdoor recreation.

The area is impressive and any outdoor enthusiast will find several adventures still undiscovered and easy to access. This quality alone differentiates Ogden Valley from other ski towns. Ogden is a mere 30 minute commute from the Salt Lake International airport and the ski resorts are as close as 45 minutes from the airport. Within a 30 minute radius of Ogden you are able to kayak, fish, ski, ice climb, skate ski, cross country ski, snow shoe, mountain bike, snowkite, kiteboard, hike, trail run, back country ski, ice fish, snow mobile, go boating, water ski, ride ATVs and motorcycles, rock climb, boulder, surf (yes) and even practice sky diving in a wind tunnel. While surfing isn't world class here (we make due with a free standing wave) everything else is. That is why Xterra holds the national championship here every year and the first winter Xterra was held at Snowbasin. Powder Mountain is proud to present the Superfly Open, an international snowkiting competition, the only kiting event ever held at a US ski resort. The area is filled with energy and exhilarating new ideas with each day offering something new right out your door.

While Mountain Luxury sells real estate, our main goal is to help people find the lifestyle they have always wanted. The wonderful thing about the greater Ogden area is that whether you are looking for a great view with trails right out your front door and a friendly coffee shop nearby or ski resort and lakefront living in a quiet setting, you can find it here at an incredible value compared to other ski towns across the US. It is time to look to Utah for the lifestyle you have always dreamed of.
