If you’re looking for the ideal winter getaway, head to Logan, Utah, where we do winter right.
Imagine a beautiful valley nestled between two mountain ranges where the only long lines we have are at the end of a fishing pole. The city of Logan is a taste of small-town America but with great restaurants and comfortable hotels and bed and breakfasts where you can curl up by the fireplace and relax.
One cool thing is that in less than a 10-minute drive, you can be in the Wasatch Cache National Forest experiencing the greatest snow on earth. You can bring your gear or rent it here, but either way we’ve got miles of cross-country ski and snowshoe trails for all levels of adventure.
Skip the crowds and commercialization of mega-resorts and ski or snowboard at Beaver Mountain Ski Resort, the longest running family-owned ski resort in the nation. It’s only 40 minutes from Logan and boasts four lifts, a great lodge, affordable ticket prices, excellent instructors if you need a lesson, and snow straight from heaven.
To really get out and explore, first stay overnight at nearby Beaver Creek Lodge and rent snowmobiles to enjoy almost 300 miles of groomed trails. You don’t even have to pack winter gear because they’ll outfit you head to toe in snowsuits, gloves, boots, and all. We’re ranked in the best snowmobiling in the nation and rated Utah’s best.
Another dreamy wintertime adventure is taking a horse-drawn sleigh ride through a huge herd of elk at Hardware Ranch. You’ll get to see these huge native animals up close and personal.
Then there’s a variety of live performances from Broadway shows to concerts and other entertainers to brighten your evenings. Logan is home to Utah State University and a wide variety of sporting events if that’s more your style.
No matter what, you’ll love our spectacular beauty and quiet solitude. Join us in Logan, where we do winter right.
