Lodging: Located in Eden, about 15 minutes from the resort, the Snowberry Inn (801-745-2634) is a cozy B&B with five rooms, each with its own theme. The Jackson Fork Inn (800-255-0672), 20 minutes away in Huntsville, is housed in a converted dairy barn. Or try the only officially historic hotel in Utah, the Ben Lomond Suite Hotel in Ogden (801-627-1900).
