Outdoor Adventure X (OAX) is Utah’s premier mountain festival for people who love active outdoor recreation – coming to Snowbasin Resort June 17-18. A curated lifestyle gathering of campers, hikers, runners, cyclists, climbers and paddlesports lovers, the event brings these communities together for a weekend of family fun, inspiration, product demos, gear vendors, live music, outdoor wellness education and skills clinics.
Just East of Ogden, Utah on the back end of the Wasatch Mountain range, Snowbasin’s ski runs turn into wildflower-lined trails come June. Join us at Snowbasin Village for mountain bike, e-bike, running, and climbing clinics on-mountain. Or jump in on one of several guided hikes winding through scenic aspen groves and glades of pine en route to Mt. Ogden. Snowbasin gondola rides and the mini-golf course and 26 miles of trails on Snowbasin are included in your event ticket.
Learn to kayak or paddle board at Lakeside Village on the scenic Pineview Reservoir. Lakeside Village will also host primitive camping at the Anderson Cove Campgrounds.
Below we’ve put together the top reasons to attend OAX. We invite you to join us for the day or the weekend to camp, play, learn and explore with us in the great outdoors.
Camping on Snowbasin Or Lakeside
Bring the family and camp with us! Event activities will go into the evening for OAX campers at the Volkswagen Base Camp Bar + Food Court including live bands and the Saturday night raffle benefiting local non-profits. Campers get their first drink free at nightly Happy Hour events.
Camp on-mountain at Snowbasin Resort in a primitive, pop-up campground staged in grassy fields. On-mountain campsites are closest to the main event area.
Lakeside Village campsites are available at Anderson Cove Campgrounds adjacent to Pineview Lake. Lakeside campers access Snowbasin Village via a free shuttle service – shuttle route is approximately 12 minutes to the main event site.
Don’t have camping gear quite yet? We’ve got you covered with glamping sites available at Lakeside Village.
All camping packages provide a weekend pass for one adult camper to attend OAX. Camp showers are available at both on-mountain and lakeside campgrounds courtesy of Geyser Shower Solutions! Both campgrounds also offer primitive bathroom amenities.
Workshops, Clinics, Roundtable Discussions + Gear Demos
At Outdoor Adventure X, we believe that the knowledge you take into the outdoors is as important as the equipment you bring along. We’ve lined up presentations and demos for you featuring inspiring adventurers and knowledgeable experts in a variety of fields. Plus, learn outdoor ethics and the tenets of responsible outdoor adventuring as part of inspirational roundtable discussions and more.
Our programming focuses on family-friendly, hands-on, how-to workshops and classes.

Doing Good + Giving Back
When we recreate in outdoor spaces, we inevitably leave an impact on the land. OAX education will be centered on Leave No Trace principles teaching OAX attendees sustainability skills and tactics to leave the land better than we found it.
OAX has also partnered with Trails Foundation of Northern Utah and the Weber Sustainability Fund to address local outdoor activity impact to the region. OAX will host a charity raffle on Saturday from the Volkswagen Base Camp Food Court & Bar area benefiting these two stellar organizations making a positive impact on the trails and waterways of Northern Utah. Purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win gear and prizes donated by OAX gear vendors. 100% of your donation goes to OAX non-profit partners.
Buy raffle tickets when you purchase your event tickets or camping passes or on-site from the Trails Foundation of Northern Utah booth.
