Good if there's snow, pray that the snow doesn't. Come on a weekend or you and all of Los Angeles are going to be there. watch out for people who don't know how to ski or ride, they usually congregate on the main run
Very Good!

Beaver mountain is a great resort tucked up in logan canyon. Its smaller than most resorts, but still has many quality runs. It can accomodate skiiers from all ranges of ability, beginner, all the way up to expert riders. Never a dull moment at beaver mountain and the scenery is amazing. Powder runs, back country, and terrain park are all... More

This resort gets extremely congested on weekends since it is the only resort near Southern California. I've a number of skiers had their skis run over by other skiers. Best time to go is on a weekday. Tuesday through Thursday would be ideal. Last time I went, snow conditions were mash potatoes.

Awesome mountain, awesome employees. Mountain was great last year with a lot of snow coverage. Crowds were a little big but getting there early was always better than being stuck on the road behind a thousand cars. Hope they limit the number this year.
