Buena Vista Ski Area is a downhill ski and snowboard area located in Beltrami County, near Bemidji, MN USA.


Leonard R. Dickinson cleared the first ski run in 1936. The original chalet, constructed from a grain bin, was at the top of Beltrami's Bowl. In 1949 the first rope tow was installed followed by chairlifts in 1975.[1][2][3][4][5]


Buena Vista is located on County Road 15 (Irvine Avenue), approximately 12 miles north of Bemidji, MN.[6]
