Beaver Mountain where have you been all my life?

By Jessica Kunzer Jan 17, 2008

As an avid Utah skier I pride myself on enjoying the diverse qualities that each Utah resort has to offer.  This is why I was so excited to Ski the Beav for my first time this past Sunday. Beaver Mountain where have you been all my life?  This quaint little resort about a two hour drive north of Salt Lake has A LOT to offer.  Beaver Mountain is one of the last family owned resorts in North America. Where else have you skied that the gentleman who sold you your ticket at the window owns the resort?

Beaver's consistent long pitches and uncrowded slopes make it great for families with skiers of all abilities.  We started our day by cruising down a creamy groomer to Harry's Dream Lift.  We then took a short 5 minute hike to some totally untracked snow above the lift.  We then met up with Travis Seeholzer, the owner's son, for the "local tour." An easy traverse looker's left of the lift led us to some great powder bowls and trees with plenty of challenging terrain.

This might have been my first time but it will definitely not be the last time I Ski the Beav!
