We know that time is of the essence when traveling. If you’ve got limited time to get from the surf to the slopes, then flying on Allegiant Airlines new direct flight from LAX to the Ogden-Hinkley Airport is the perfect way to travel to your next ski vacation.

The Ogden-Hinkley Airport, serviced by Allegiant Air, is located 5 minutes from downtown Ogden and currently offers twice-weekly, direct, non-stop flights between Ogden and Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport in Arizona, and will be adding two new direct flights from both Los Angeles and Las Vegas this fall. Perfect for the weekend warrior, flights from Los Angeles will begin service October 5 with prices starting at $35 each way. 

“We are thrilled to welcome travelers from Los Angeles to the Ogden area,” stated Sara Toliver, President of Visit Ogden. “Los Angeles is one of our top performing domestic markets for destination skiers and snowboarders. Visitors from LA will be skiing on the mountains within two hours of boarding their flight, they won’t be able to find a more accessible flight or a more affordable option out there.” 

Nestled in the Wasatch Mountain Range, Ogden’s rich mountain-to-metro personality has evolved from a rowdy railroad town to a bustling outdoor hub. Ogden has a unique balance of history intertwined with a vibrant urban experience. Here visitors will discover spirited local events, boutique shopping, piquant dining and exceptional nightlife with backyard access to year-round, heart-pounding recreation.

 In addition to the great flight costs, travelers and thrill seekers will also save on the slopes when they stay at one of Visit Ogden’s preferred lodging properties. At check-in, guests will receive the Ski 3 pass which will give them access to Ogden’s three ski resorts, Nordic Valley, Powder Mountain, and Snowbasin Resort for $157.  When combined, these resorts boast over 12,00 skiable acres with 3,000 vertical feet to explore. Snow enthusiasts of all levels will experience long runs, a balanced mix of beginner, intermediate and advanced terrain. With an average of 400 inches of snow a year you can find anything from soft groomers to champaign powder. When your day on the slopes is over, guests can rest easy knowing that they have just discovered Utah’s best-kept secret.
