Beaver Mountain is a family friendly resort in the beautiful Beaver Mountain range. With prices still below $40 for an all day pass, you can't beat the prices.
Beaver Mt. is an easy drive between Bear Lake and Logan. Accommodations can be found in Logan as well as the Bear Lake area, both are within a 40-minute drive from Beaver and the nearest airport is about 1 1/2 hrs away. Since it is along a well-traveled highway, the roads are plowed often and there is no extreme driving necessary to reach the resort.
The resort offers a range of terrain for beginners through pros but the amount of "extreme terrain" is fairly limited. However, from Beaver Mountain you can access hundreds of acres of mountain reaching up into Idaho.
There are 4 lifts at Beaver Mountain: Marge's Triple, Harry's Dream, The Face Lift and Little Beaver. The nice part about Beaver is that if you are a beginner and find yourself wandering into a new area, you will not find yourself in an impossible situation terrain-wise. There is generally an "easy" way out of almost every area of the resort. Since it is very much a family resort, there are many options available for children and classes are offered for any level of skill.
New for 2009 season, the lodge has been re-modeled to offer a larger eating/indoor recreation area.
Beaver has the amazing Utah snow, which adds up to more powder than you can shake a stick at sometimes, as well as the tree runs and terrain park. If you come to Beaver Mountain you will find something for everyone.
