Nothing beats cross-country skiing and snowshoeing on a crisp winter day in the Wasatch-Cache National Forest or at Sherwood Hills. 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.
