Wasatch Yeti Bash: A Festival Unlike Any Other
Celebrate winter, art, entertainment and fun at Ogden, Utah’s annual Wasatch Yeti Bash
Just a 30-minute drive north of Salt Lake City, Ogden is known as a hub for skiers and snowboarders visiting nearby Snowbasin and Powder Mountain. With so many outdoor activities to do in the Wasatch Mountains, it’s easy to forget about the great culture and art scene that’s just a few minutes away in downtown Ogden, which has exploded in recent years. Historic 25th Street is laden with shops, bars and art galleries, and it has long been a favorite for both locals and visitors looking for aprés-ski fun.
The Wasatch Yeti Bash, held every first Friday of February, is free to attend and one of the big draws to the area. Held at Union Station at the end of Historic 25th Street, this annual festival celebrates Ogden’s role as a winter destination, art hub and overall fun place to be. It’s held in conjunction with the monthly First Friday Art Stroll that occurs year-round in Ogden. While the Yeti Bash itself takes place on Friday, it’s always followed on Saturday by the Sweaty Yeti Fat Bike Race at Weber County North Fork Park (about 30 minutes north of Ogden).
Here’s what you can expect at one of Ogden’s most popular winter events.
