Thick and Thin

Thick and Thin is one of the new gladed trails in The Beavers. It will be easily accessible by getting on the Davis trail in the West Wall saddle. This can be done from either the top of Pali or the Summit. Skiers and riders will find some incredible tree skiing. The trail has a North facing aspect. Not only will it hold a lot of snow, but the snow quality will be superb.

When the A-Basin founders started building the ski area in 1946 they built a sawmill on the flat portion of middle Sundance (aka Sawmill Flats). Pictures of the sawmill can be found on the walls of the A-Frame. In an effort to make the logging process a sound venture, they formed the "Thick and Thin Lumber Company."
