The Ogden Valley isn’t just for fun-time winter activities. Enjoy the all-sports lake called Pineview. Nothing beats a day on the water surrounded by 360 degrees of mountains (including amazing vistas of the Snowbasin and Powder Mountain ski resorts). You’ll find sport fishing opportunities like tiger muskie (blend of muskie and northern pike), smallmouth bass, bullhead catfish, sunfish, crappie and trout.
The 360 degrees of mountains around the lake and valley not only are visually breathtaking, they shelter the water from wind, producing glassy calm water, ideal for Kayaking (see video below), wake boarding and water skiing. Be sure to check out the campgrounds and sandy beaches.
