Ogden Valley Adaptive Sports Auction

Opening Doors OVAS logo

As a proud board member of the Ogden Valley Adaptive Sports Program, I have exciting news about our inaugural, virtual fundraising initiative “Opening Doors to the Outdoors.”

Adapting to Covid required our organization to find an alternative to the popular, highly successful “Demo Day” fundraiser that had become a iconic Saturday celebration each March at Snowbasin.  With the help of everyone appreciative of the wonderful work done by the Adaptive Sports Program, we are convinced the upcoming auction, March 26 through the 28th, will be an overwhelming success.

For over 11 years we have provided adaptive ski and snowboarding opportunities to persons with disabilities at Snowbasin, Powder Mountain, and Nordic Valley.  We serve persons with all ranges of physical and cognitive disabilities, from 5 to 98 years old, including local school children and military veterans.

All proceeds from this event will directly support our adaptive sports programs through purchasing of adaptive equipment and covering costs for participants in financial need.

More details and event registration to come, but check out the list below for a sneak peek of items that will be auctioned off!

Rossignol skis;  Atomic skis and bindings;  Icelantic skis;  Castle Valley River trip for 2; Sun Valley skiing getaway package incl. condo and lift tickets;  Private 2 hours snowshoe excursion for 4;  Wildlife Guided Tour for 2 in Yellowstone;  Men’s and Women’s jackets from Kuhl


Lisa’s Market Update – March 2021

February saw real estate sales statistics in the Ogden Valley continue the hot, upward trend of the past nine months.  But a big jump in inventory in single family homes along the Ogden Bench could mean that market is beginning to slow.

The price per sq. ft. for single family homes in the Ogden Valley jumped from$248.00 to $287.00, an all-time high.  Little more than a year ago the number was consistently below $200.00.  Median days on the market in the Valley dropped to 38 from 179, a strong indication of scarce inventory driving prices.  Sales of condos and townhomes in the Valley also showed statistical increases.  The median price per sq. ft. was $275.00, up from $267.00, and median days on the market dropped to an eye-popping 1 in February, from 3 in January.

Mountain Green single family home sales dropped from 39 median days on the market to only 10 days, while the median sales price rose to $918,000 from $870,000.

Most sales statistics for single family homes along the Ogden Bench stayed strong, even though the inventory jumped from 11 properties for sale in January to 28 in February.
