Another resort in Utah. Why not. They have incredible mountains and an annual snowfall that produces hundreds of inches a year for all its resorts. Located outside Beaver, Eagle Point will be a easy to access for people from all north and south. The skiing has to be unreal with a base elevation at 9,100ft. I can’t wait to check this place out….
Eagle Point, a new ski resort located outside of Beaver, Utah, opened for its inaugural season today, December 15, 2010.
Eagle Point has been established on the site of the former Elk Meadows Ski Resort. With extensive renovations to two lodges, reconditioned lifts, and other significant infrastructure improvements, Eagle Point will be welcoming skiers and snowboarders beginning mid December of 2010.
“We wanted to create a place that would offer more than just great skiing,” said Shane Gadbaw, Eagle Point’s chief executive officer. “Our goal is also to be family friendly, deliver outstanding dining, amenities and service, and appeal to those who might be looking to get away from the crowds.”
Located in the Tushar Mountains, one of Utah’s tallest ranges, Eagle Point will open as an affordable family snowsport destination. Its 36 trails are a mix of beginner, intermediate, and expert terrain, with a halfpipe and significant backcountry opportunities, all taking advantage of an average snowfall of 400 inches per year.
Eagle Point is a 3.5 hour drive from Las Vegas and Salt Lake City, and 6-8 hours from Southern California and Phoenix. With quick access from I-15, many of the region’s national parks and popular attractions are within a day’s striking distance.
