It's never too early to think about next season, or at least that's what the Beaver Mountain ticket office thinks.

Season passes for 2011-2012 at the northern Utah mountain went on sale March 8, with savings as deep as 55 percent of the full price. Passes may be purchased at the mountain, located 27 miles north of Logan, or at the Logan office at 1351 East 700 North, which is open Monday through Saturday 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Passes will be available only at the Logan office, however.

A pass for skiers and snowboarders 12 years and older begins at $300, if purchased before April 15. The cost goes up $35 for each month after closing, topping out at a full rate of $545 after Oct. 16.

Juniors from ages 6 to 11 can purchase a season pass for $110 before the end of the season. That price, too, goes up $35 a month to the full rate of $355. Children 5 and under can ski or ride for free, with the purchase of an adult pass.

High school and college students with photo IDs (and class schedule for collegians) get a discounted rate of $300 until November, when the cost goes up to $355.
