LOGAN – Family and friends of late Beaver Mountain co-owner Ted Seeholzer are planning a special tribute to him Saturday morning. Seeholzer’s widow Marge, who co-owns the ski resort, said they have wanted to do something ever since he passed away in May of last year.
Marge Seeholzer said they are inviting everyone to Beaver Mountain Saturday morning to participate in a “Last Run” ceremony. The Ski Patrol will help conduct this ceremony and everyone is invited to participate or watch.
“They will line the sides of the run,” said Seeholzer. “Then our Snow Sports School staff will be the first group to come down and they will ski down the Face.”
Seeholzer said, “Then it will be family and friends. We’re pretty excited because we’ll have a lot of family there skiing. We’ll have children, grand-children, great-grand-children, siblings, nephews, nieces, cousins and then special friends. We’ve invited anyone who wants to participate to join us.”
The ski lift will begin loading participants at 8:15 a.m. You will not need a lift ticket to ride.
Following the ceremony a friend of the Seeholzer family will give a special tribute to Ted and balloons will be released. A continental breakfast will then be served in the Beaver Mountain Café.
Marge and Ted operated Beaver Mountain together for 45 years. She said there has been a huge void this year without him.
“It’s been really hard for me,” said Seeholzer. “You know we worked together side by side in this business for years and years and years. There isn’t a day go by that I don’t think, ‘well now what’s the answer to this question, and this is something that Ted usually does for us and this is one of his responsibilities.’ It is just a big hole.”
Ted Seeholzer died May 23, 2013 at the age of 81.
