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. Highway 89 in Logan Canyon (26 miles east of Logan and 15 miles west of Garden City), Logan Canyon (435) 753-0921

The Bear River Mountains

The Bear River Mountains are located in northern Utah and southeastern Idaho. The mountains form the northern extension of the Wasatch Range. They run in a north to south direction from Soda Springs, Idaho to Ogden Valley, Utah. This area is a gem and has many beautiful mountains and lakes. The highest peaks are over 9,000 feet in elevation. They vary from rolling hills to summits surrounding by rugged cliffs. Some of the more interesting peaks remain unnamed and are seldom climbed.

The mountain range is near by cities and towns but does not feel crowded. One of the biggest attractions of the range is the flower covered meadows on the hills and mountain slopes from late spring through summer. Several of these flowers are unique to the region. There are also large populations of moose, elk, and deer. Many smaller animals can be found including marmots, pikas, and beavers are well established in several streams.

The range is composed mostly of limestone and dolomite that varies in age and has different layers of thickness. Other rock layers include quartzite and shale. The rock has eroded and formed caves, sinkholes, ponds, and streams that seem to disappear. Many of these caves are simply holes in the ground that appear in the least likely of places. It is a good idea to watch where you are walking anytime you are hiking off-trail in these mountains.

The name of the mountains comes from the Bear River, which loops around the range on its east, north, and west sides. Cache Valley forms the western boundary of the range and Bear Lake Valley forms the eastern boundary. The summit views are extensive and the Teton and Uinta Mountains can be seen on a clear day. The Wellsville Mountains can be seen off in the distance to the southwest. The topography of the range consist of ridges with large rounded summits which is typical of the Northern Wasatch Mountains.

Rock Climbing

Many climbers make a pilgrimage to Logan Canyon for the abundant vertical and overhanging limestone and quartzite faces, and for the steepness and quality of rock. With cliffs primarily facing north and south, climbers can choose sun or shade. Mild weather, low humidity, and little rain offer excellent climbing opportunities during spring, summer, and fall. More than 275 routes have been developed and approximately 230 are bolt-protected sport climbs. The remaining routes require placing natural protection. Most climbs are in the 5.10 to 5.12 range. Climbers must be respectful of restrictions designed to protect five sensitive plant species including Maguire's Primrose, a flower found only in Logan Canyon. Logan Ranger District (435) 755-3620

Birding

This region is known for many species of birds that make their home in Cache Valley or migrate through. Due to our unique geography you can see shorebirds and mountain species all within a 20-minute drive. Cache Valley is nestled between the Bear River and Bear Lake National Wildlife Refuges. Here, you'll spot birds along the Bear River, directly west of Logan. In spring and summer, Cutler Marsh offers viewing in classic wetland habitat. White Pelicans, White-Faced Ibis, Great Blue Herons, Egrets, Western Grebes, plus a variety of ducks, geese, and shorebirds may be seen from roadways or you can rent a canoe or kayak for a close-up experience. The number and diversity of marsh birds is spectacular. In early autumn, visit the north end of the Wellsville Mountain wilderness to watch the annual raptor migration. Northern harriers, kestrels, goshawks, red-tailed hawks, golden eagles, and other species float by, lifted by canyon updrafts that ease their relentless flight south. A free birding brochure is available at Cache Valley Visitors Bureau. For more information on birding in Cache Valley, visit Bridgerland Audubon's website at www.bridgerlandaudubon.org
