Report from Saturday, December 12th, 2020

I was driving from Jackson, WY to Park City, UT yesterday when a flashing sign told me that I-80 west in Wyoming was closed.

I took a detour around Bear Lake and ended up at the foot of Beaver Mountain, UT.

Beaver Mountain Stats:

  • 400″+ average annual snowfall
  • 1,700-vertical-feet
  • 8,860′ top elevation
  • 828 acres

I saw fresh tracks up there, pulled in, and was stoked on what I saw.

A gorgeous little ski hill with a thriving backcountry community and a ski area clearly supporting that community.

I jumped on the well-trodden skin track and zipped up to the top of 8,800′ Beaver Mountain.

There was around 2-4″ of new snow and the skiing up high was quite good.

I skied from top to bottom and loved every second of it.

This place is rad.

I can’t wait to come back here when they’re open and explore every inch.
