Beaver Mountain is a local ski resort with an advertised friendly atmosphere and low prices. Many of the online review sites said it is one of Utah's best-kept secrets. This resort is family-owned, family-operated, and family-oriented. The resort has been open since 1939; this makes it the oldest continuously-owned family ski area in the United States.
Beaver Mountain is a smaller mountain resort. It has well maintained slopes with northeastern exposure, which are said to be perfect for catching morning rays. There is a variety of terrain with nearly equal percentages for beginners, intermediate and advanced skiers.
Downhill skiing and snowboarding are major winter activities at the resort. There is also cross-country skiing and snowmobile trails nearby. Skiing normally runs from early December through the last weekend of March. The "Beav'' holds a season-ending "Big Air" contest. This contest features jumps and a pond-skimming event.
In summer, the Beaver Mountain area is a great destination for fishing, hiking, horseback riding, boating and other activities nearby. There is an RV Park or tent campground. During summer months, families or other groups can rent the lodge and yurt facilities.
The lodge is available for Weddings, Reunions, Camps, Retreats, and Conferences Rentals are available for a day or a week from May through October.
The R.V. Park has Full Hookups (electricity, water, and sewer). There are picnic tables and fire pits for each site. There are also Ten-Man Tents available to rent. These tents are set up and ready for use with hydrant water, picnic tables, and fire pits. Another option is to rent a yurt. A yurt is a round, canvas, semi-permanent tent. It has a wood floor and beds.

From a March 2009 online reviewer, "For three years I have been visiting my son in Garden City and every year we travel to different resorts in Utah and Wyoming. Finally...I convinced him to take us to The Beav. I can not believe we wasted so much time driving to other resorts! We had a blue bird day with fresh snow. There were no crowds and for the price paid it just does not get any better. We'll be back!!!!!!!!''
Another online reviewer said, "I've raised my kids skiing at the Beav. If you are looking for fast lifts and leg busting bumps, this isn't the place for you. If you are looking for some great tree skiing, a place where you can relax with your kids and enjoy skiing the way it was before $70+ lift tickets, this is the perfect spot. You can even afford to buy lunch in the lodge without a second mortgage, and my kids claim the Beav makes the best French fries in the world. The groomers can be a little boring, but with the help of a cheap ski instructor, you can ski the whole day on back country style runs and never see the same spot twice. Ski the Beav!''
