After watching his father work in the glass industry for more than 30 years, Troy Mason followed in his footsteps by opening his own full-service glass shop in 1991. Not content with simply fixing cracks, Troy also developed an in-house technician-training program that allies itself with the standards set by the National Glass Association. Two of its graduates were honored as half of the top four installers in the United States, earning the esteem of their peers and a gold medal made from old hood ornaments at the United States Auto Glass Olympics.

hough it rests amid the pine trees of Utah's Ogden Canyon, Alaskan Inn draws inspiration from the tundra and snow-capped peaks located even further north. The inn's 23 suites and cabins feature arctic-themed décor, such as all-white canopy beds, shimmering satin sheets, and drifting ice floes. Some rooms take the motif even farther: In the Northern Lights suite, a light show replicates the dancing glow of the Aurora Borealis, and the Bears Den suite creates a cave-like atmosphere with stuffed black bears and a waterfall. The 11 cabins, which sit separate from the main log lodge, are more modestly decorated, though each boasts a private shower. All rooms come with jetted jacuzzi tubs and big-screen TVs.
Breakfast, included with every stay, is made hot and à la carte with a choice of entree and two sides. Alaskan Inn also provides complimentary spiced sparkling cider and fresh-baked cookies as a snack for guests and an off-duty Santa Claus.
As Alaskan Inn lies only 15 minutes from downtown Ogden, guests can easily travel to the town’s numerous restaurants and shops. The inn’s close proximity to the Ogden River in Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest also makes it a hub for outdoor fun, with easy access to hiking trails.
Youthful Image Medical Spa is located within the Ogden Women's Clinic, and the staff treats each aesthetic procedure with the care and professionalism due a medical procedure. The attentive aestheticians are supervised by onsite physicians as they perform traditional spa treatments alongside technologically enhanced beauty services. Before a 30-minute spa facial, an aesthetician carefully analyzes the client's skin type to craft a facial protocol that addresses individual beauty concerns such as dry skin, acne, or the fine lines that result from wearing clothespins as accessories. For more intensive treatment, clients can choose one of five medical-grade chemical peels, each of which exfoliates faces with a mix of acidic agents calibrated to treat conditions including acne, fine lines, and sun spots. The technicians harness the multitasking power of concentrated light during laser treatments including spider-vein removal, hair reduction, and photofacials. During each noninvasive procedure, the technician guides a laser beam across the skin to obliterate unwanted veins, spots, and hair without the downtime or pain of surgery.

Dr. Kris Davis and Dr. Daniel Davenport of Spinal Care Center of Utah bolster clients’ back and bodily health through holistically focused chiropractic treatments. Spinal columns undergo careful scrutiny during consultations in which the docs chart complaints and conduct orthopedic, neurologic, and spinal examinations, taking all necessary x-rays to check for bone stability and souvenir seashells posing as vertebrae. Their massages simultaneously unload muscle-held stresses and unwind tissue knots, while their K-Laser saturates tissues with a combination of specific wavelengths of light that help biostimulate body repair. These stimulating sessions can increase natural bodily processes to accelerate tissue repair, improve vascular activity, and speed recovery from whiplash incurred at the office’s annual rolling-chair demolition derby.
