The Ogden, Utah area is a center for skiing and adventure sports. Located 40 miles north of Salt Lake City, Ogden is a gateway to Snowbasin, Powder Mountain and Wolf Mountain ski resorts. Historically, Ogden was a major player in the development of the Transcontinental Railroad. Golden Spike National Historic Site, located northwest of the city, commemorates the completion of the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroads. That event marked the beginning of the end of the American frontier.
Home to Weber State University, Ogden was voted America’s 6th best city to raise a family (Forbes, 2010) and offers small town living with all the amenities of a big city. Ogden’s low crime rate, friendly residents and ever expanding entertainment options make it the perfect city for a Junior hockey player looking to further his playing career.
While playing, Mustangs players can soak in the experience of up to 2,000 fans cheering them to a Championship. Ogden’s location allows our players to spend off days hiking in the Wasatch mountains or skiing at some of the best ski resorts in America, located less than 30 miles from our arena.
We’re always looking for families in the Ogden area who are interested in billeting Mustang players. Please contact OMHBillets@gmail.com to express your interest or ask any further questions.
Whether you’re a player, parent, or fan, we hope the information on this page is helpful to you, in explaining what the billeting experience is like for Ogden Mustangs players. Our players come from around the world to play hockey in Ogden. While the coaches take care of their on-ice development and care, a key part of an Ogden Mustang player’s experience is what happens off-ice, in the homes they are billeted in. We take pride in providing our players with the best accommodations possible, with caring families in the local community. For many of our players, this is their first time away from home. A stable home environment goes a long way in providing peace of mind and solidity to these 17-21-year-olds, as well as their own families back home. Many have found that becoming a billet family is an extremely rewarding experience, forming a special bond with the players in their home.
