LOGAN — Beaver Mountain co-owner, Ted Seeholzer, died Thursday afternoon. A family member said the 81 year-old Seeholzer died at Logan Regional Hospital where he was being treated for an illness. He had been in an out of the hospital in recent weeks. For many years Seeholzer and his wife operated Beaver Mountain ski area, which was started by his father, Harry Seeholzer, in 1939.
Cindy Allen has worked for the Seeholzer’s for 20 years at the Beaver Mountain Ski office. She said Ted had a heart bigger than most people can imagine.
“He loved that mountain,” said Allen. “He could tell you almost every rock, every spot. From grooming it in the wintertime, hunting it in the fall, and trail clearing when he was a kid, that mountain he lived and breathed. It was his soul.”
Beaver Mountain remains one of the oldest family-owned ski resorts in the country. Funeral services are currently being arranged.
