nordic ski tour beaver creek trail, west uintas

Beaver Creek Trail, West UnitasThe Beaver Creek Trail provides opportunity for a relatively easy kick and glide touring. A good place for beginners. Mostly flat terrain with a few hills. Great scenery. Avalanche danger is low. Light backcountry touring skis or nordic touring skis are suitable. The ski equipment should be set for some mild climbing (waxless base, wax). Climbing skins can also be used but may be a bit of an overkill. The drive to the trailhead is about 1 hour. The Mirror Lake Highway toll is $6.00 per vehicle. Lets plan to meet at 8:15 am for an 8:30 departure. Energetic dogs are welcome. If we tour end to end and back, the tour will be at least 4-5 hours. I suggest stopping in Kamas for some food on the way back home.
