Hi everyone, this is Jacob. We had a great time at Eagle Point. The resort is pretty big, and split into two halves (a top part and a lower part) that you connect to through a tunnel. We started at the top by the Skyline Lodge, and did all the runs off the Monarch lift. This area also has the terrain park, which was fun to ski because it has box rails of all different sizes – my 5 year old brother even did them with me – and they have a halfpipe.
For the second half of the day we skied the lower part of the resort, which is a lot steeper and has mostly black runs. I really like the Hoodoos run. It’s a groomed black run and you can go FLYING down it. We probably skied it 10 times, and it stayed awesome all day long. It was even wide enough for my dad to do his big, slow turns and for me to speed down next to him. We were still skiing on corduroy at the end of the day. In the video below my sister records the run with our GoPro.
There are no crowds at all at Eagle Point. We never had to wait in a ski lift line, and were almost always the only people skiing on the run we were on. There weren’t even crowds when we stopped for lunch in the Outpost Grill. You should definitely get the Mac and Cheese with bacon because it was tasty. I also had fun playing the shuffleboard game.
We had so much fun visiting Eagle Point and I’d love to go back and spend a week. We’ve now hit 11 of Utah’s 14 ski resorts so we only have 3 left. The 5th Grade Passport is awesome!
