We knew just to what we wanted to do on the last day of the year... Ski the Beav. What could be better?
Um, warmer temperatures, that's what. Although fun, the frozen toes, fingers and noses took hours to thaw due to temperatures in the negative. It was that cold.
Brielle, being a 5th grader was able to get the "Pass of all Passes." For $25.00, all 5th graders in Utah get access to ALL Utah ski resorts for FREE -- 3 times during the season. We jumped all over that, thinking we'd be able to ski all over the state this season.
We were wrong. While the "Pass of all Passes" is a great deal (and still worth the $25 bucks), skiing in Salt Lake and Park City is just not as cheap as it once was. Gone are the days you can ski Brighton for $40 bucks. I pulled up resort prices and most range from $65-115! Ouch!
But that's okay. Because Beaver Mountain has become our families favorite place to ski. It's close, we always run into friends and neighbors on the slopes and most importantly... it's cheap! I'm sure we'll venture out, but just not as much as we had planned.
