Things To Do
Whether you prefer the exhilaration of Alpine (downhill) skiing and Snowboarding or the peace and tranquility of Nordic (cross-country) skiing or touring the back-country on snowshoes, the mountains of northern Utah have it all.
Get your adrenalin rush on one of the many great runs at Beaver Mountain Ski Area, the oldest family run resort in North America. For a slower pace, nothing beats cross-country skiing and snowshoeing on a crisp winter day in the Wasatch-Cache National Forest. There are routes for all levels of experience. You’re likely to see deer, elk, moose, snowshoe hare, cottontails, ermine, porcupines, and a variety of birds. Beginner areas are located in Sink Hollow, at the entrance of Beaver Mountain Ski Resort, and at Sunrise Campground on U.S. Hwy. 89, which overlooks Bear Lake and is near the Logan Canyon summit. A groomed track in Green Canyon offers excellent skiing just minutes from downtown Logan.

Beaver Mountain Ski Resort
One mile off Highway 89, on SR 243, you will arrive at the cozy lodge of Beaver Mountain Ski Area. The Seeholzer family has operated this charming resort since the days when skiing meant sliding around on narrow wooden boards attached to your foot with a 2-inch piece of inner-tube. The resort first opened in 1939. Harold Seeholzer dreamed of a lift running all the way to the top of Beaver Mountain. The “Harry’s Dream” lift was built in his honor. Beaver Mountain currently runs four chairlifts and is a winter tradition among thousands of devoted skiers.
Beaver Mountain is not the sprawling mega-resort like you find in Park City and other Utah locales but it offers wonderful runs, great Utah snow, shorter lift lines and less burden on your pocket-book. It is one of Utah’s best kept winter secrets.
