Beaver Mountain Ski Resort
One mile off Highway 89, on SR 243, you will arrive at the cozy lodge of Beaver Mountain Ski Area. The Seeholzer family has operated this charming resort since the days when skiing meant sliding around on narrow wooden boards attached to your foot with a 2-inch piece of inner-tube. The resort first opened in 1939. Harold Seeholzer dreamed of a lift running all the way to the top of Beaver Mountain. The “Harry’s Dream” lift was built in his honor. Beaver Mountain currently runs four chairlifts and is a winter tradition among thousands of devoted skiers.
Beaver Mountain is not the sprawling mega-resort like you find in Park City and other Utah locales but it offers wonderful runs, great Utah snow, shorter lift lines and less burden on your pocket-book. It is one of Utah’s best kept winter secrets.
