He was comparing the pipes not the parks. but who rides pipe anyways?
As for the rest, you guys are right the bar scene is a million times better in SLC. Flow riding, and indoor skydiving are pricy for sure. The rest is free or next to free. I hate living in Ogden, but I hate living in Utah. If it wasnt for the skiing and cheap college I'd be gone. the only good things about it are one WSU is a legit college that is not a community college Lets be realistic getting your batchelro. it is also half the price of the U. You can go to Weber until all but your last year of college then go to Oxford or Harvard and guess where your degree says its from? Oxford or Harvard. All while you saved yourself tens of thousands of dollars. Its hard to meet people in Ogden if you're into hype and scenes. Ski at at any of the resorts and actually talk to people and not down on them because they don't have the newest gear, an audi, or a fixie. and you'll have no problem.
The people who ride for the most people aren't into hype and you can join any group, lift lines and park lines are a quarter the size, you just won't have jumps over 40 feet to hit. Converesely you can get to the resort at noon on a powder day and still be riding untracked snow until close. if not into the next day.
Those guys opinions are great and for the most part Valid, however they don't live in Ogden I do, it sucks for sure, but because its in Utah. Weird laws, same customs as pretty much any religious based culture. SLC has most the same problems, its just has more going on to distract you. I don't own a fixie and I hate PBR so maybe I just don't get it. But what I do get is working a full time job, going to school full time and skiing 5 days a week. I do it in Ogden theres no way I could do it in SLC. When winter rolls around if you're looking for the best places to ski stop into Decade and I'll be happy to share the shred.
