When you’re moving to a new neighborhood or state, there are many things that you will probably want to find out before you decide on an exact location for your home. Utah homebuilders are aware of the things that a lot of people look for when buying a new home, such as great schools, access to shopping and dining, as well as recreational opportunities. South Weber has plenty to offer when it comes to meeting essential requirements for a range of home buyers. And access to recreational pursuits is one of them.
Snowbasin Ski Resort

Snowbasin Ski Area offers 3,000 acres of skiing in winter and 26 miles of hiking and biking trails during the summer, meaning you can enjoy the mountain air and spectacular scenery all year round. It is a beautiful place for the whole family, with activities for all levels and abilities, and it can be an ideal place to learn to ski for the first time. Whether you’re moving from another city or across the country, this can be a great opportunity to have this type of area almost on your doorstep, meaning you don’t need to travel far to experience the joy of a ski vacation (and you won’t have the hefty airfare expenses).
Located around a 25 minute drive northeast of South Weber, Pineview Reservoir is one of the best locations for watersports and fishing in the area and is also the busiest. It is known for its excellent fishing opportunities, particularly for tiger muskie and it is where the Utah state record tiger muskie was caught, weighing a massive 33 pounds 9 ounces. So it can be a great place to try your luck at catching something. As well as tiger muskie the lake is also home to bass, catfish, perch, crappie and trout. If fishing is not your thing, there are beaches where you can enjoy family time at the lake or you can take a boat out on the water to explore the many coves and bays. You can even try wakeboarding. There are also several trails for hiking and biking if you’d rather stay on dry land.
