Beaver, UT- Eagle Point, a new ski resort located outside of Beaver, Utah, is slated to open for the 2010/2011 season.
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.
Private condominiums are available at the resort, and additional lodging options are located down in nearby Beaver.
