The Ogden Valley Forum has received several questions from VCRD members and other Ogden Valley residents about the helicopter service operating out of Red Moose Lodge transporting individuals to Powder Mountain for back country skiing. After contacting the Weber County Planning Department about the issue their staff agreed to research this matter.
Iris Hennon, the Code Enforcement Officer for Weber County, responded and advised us that the helicopter service operating out of Red Moose Lodge is doing so without the required county permits.
Ms. Hennon talked with the manager of Red Moose Lodge this afternoon and advised that all parties CEASE the helicopter operations immediately. She referred them to the Weber County Planning Department to apply for the proper permits to operate this service if allowable under the current zoning ordinance.
Ms. Hennon asked that anyone observing a helicopter flight in Ogden Valley to or from the Red Moose Lodge area and wishing to file a complaint, should call her immediately at 801-399-8762.
In addition, Mr. Bill Hughes at the FAA should be contacted if you have any questions regarding FAA rules and the helicopter activity in Ogden Valley. Mr. Hughes can be reached at 801-257-5050.
