Loveable Beaver Mountain Resort is a throw-back resort, with skiing at its core and the same incredible family running the show since 1939. There's plenty of reason to celebrate Beaver as the resort turns 75 years old this spring. Chances are, you've never skied, let alone heard of this mountain and we want to change that. It's time to "Ski the Beav" and you'll thank us later for turning you onto a true gem in the ski industry.

Here's a list of the Top 10 Things You Didn't Know about Beaver Mountain:

  1. Beaver Mountain sports an all volunteer ski patrol staff.
  2. Beaver Mountain is only 2 miles from the Idaho Boarder.
  3. There were no rules in the old days, as a dairy delivery truck powered the first lift. Beaver Mountain operated (off the grid) until 1986, firing up all lifts via a diesel generator.
  4. Harry's Dream triple chair was the old Alta Ski Area's Germania lift.
  5. Was the first resort in Utah to allow snowboarding.
  6. Own a ski resort for a night. That's right, you can rent out the entire night ski area for your own private party. Call 435-753-0921
  7. Longest family owned resort (Seeholzer family) in the U.S. Currently there are three generations of Seeholzers working at the resort.
  8. In the 1950s the first person at the t-bar lift on that particular day would wear the ski patrol vest for the day.
  9. An Unlimited Season Pass at Beaver Mountain is only $325.
  10. Beaver Mountain turns 75 years old this spring! Celebrate with $7.50 lift tickets on Monday, March 16th, 2015. Passes must be purchased at the mountain.
