OGDEN -- Dustin Linker and Lynn Neil moved to Ogden several years ago, attracted by the area's supreme outdoor recreation scene -- especially the vibrant local ski and snowboard community.
It wasn't long before they saw the need for a wide-reaching organization that could bring locals with common interests and aspirations together.
Four years ago, shortly after relocating from Jackson Hole and enrolling at Weber State University, Neil started a snowboarding club on campus and brought on Linker as the coach.
"As great as it was, we saw an additional need in the community," Linker said. "We could only teach college students, but we saw the need to reach more people outside of campus."
