Beaver Mountain


Family-owned and family-friendly Beaver Mountain has been serving up fine skiing and Utah powder to locals from Logan, Garden City, and Randolph, all within 50 miles, since 1947. But as northern Utah becomes more popular skiers and riders from afar have begun to discover the mountain. Skiing at the area goes back to 1937 when Logan City ran a municipal tow at what is now Beaver Mountain. Several years of uncertain operation (and a world war) followed until a proposal by Harold Seeholzer, who had been involved from the start, was accepted. The Seeholzer family has owned it ever since.
