Type • Triple chair

Vertical rise • 1,600 feet

Number of runs • 12

Difficulty rating • Beginner to advanced

Why try it • Plenty of opportunities for skiing well-spaced trees

The ride • From the Cache Valley, it's 27 miles up Logan Canyon to family-owned Beaver Mountain. Just uphill from the day lodge is Harry's Dream Lift, named after the resort's founder, Harold Seeholzer, whose son and successor, Ted, died this past offseason. Harry's Dream Lift is a slow-moving, fixed-grip triple whose load-out zone is near the top of the mountain, giving riders access to any kind of skiing or boarding they want (except for really steep slopes).

Runs to try

D-Street • Has appeal for early intermediates, who have plenty of room for meandering terms within its broad boundaries, as well as better skiers and boarders, who will find it has enough slope to build up good speed on a nonstop.

Stan's Bonanza • With a little more steepness that will appeal to experts, this run has trees that can serve as slalom poles on powder days.

Beaver's Powder • This is another run for powder and tree-skiing aficionados, different from Stan's because its fall lines slope left to right. It's main drawback is a fairly long runout zone.
