Skiing meets affordability at Beaver Mountain

Nope, the above photo was not taken 20 years ago, in fact, the fashionable orange Eider pants are in indication that this photo is present day.  It’s hard to believe that the cured rich log planks and the old-school lift ticket pricing actually exist at a ski resort still in operation.  Meet Beaver Mountain, Utah’s most northern gem, America’s longest family owned and operated resort.  A family oriented resort that offers incredibly reasonable ticket prices.  It’s easy to jump on the band wagon and complain about the ski industry’s exorbitant prices.  Here’s a fair rebuttal to all those complaints:

$45 = All Area, All Day Lift Pass
$35 = Half Day, All Area Lift Pass
$3 = Single Ride on Little Beaver
$5 = Hamburger

These amazing rates put you on the slopes of a resort that receives on average 400’’ of snow, has 664 skiable acres and a 1600 vertical drop.  In short, the skiing is legit.  Want to own the resort for a night?  Beaver Mountain has taken the unique approach to offer night skiing exclusively for rent to private groups.  

Get out there and affordably spend a day on the snow at a ski resort that has the best tagline in the business, Ski the Beav!  You won't regret it, and besides, how can you go wrong with a $5 burger, hot off the grill?

In operation since 1939, Beaver Mountain’s history runs deep, here is a documentary to catch you up to speed.
