Utah’s newest ski and snowboard resort declares itself “Your Second Home” with $25 lift tickets for the 2013/2014 season.

October 1, 2013 ­­ Eagle Point Resort in Beaver, Utah today announced key promotions and resort improvements for the 2013/2014 season highlighted by $25 lift tickets all season long.

Following its successful “Free Days” campaign last season, Utah’s newest ski and snowboard resort once again makes it affordable for everyone to enjoy Utah’s greatest snow on earth. Eagle Point’s new campaign ­ “Your Second Home” ­ offers flat rate $25 lift tickets all season based on the eligibility factors below:

  • ●  all skiers and snowboarders every Thursday and Sunday (excluding holidays)

  • ●  children (7­17) and college students (must show ID or proof of enrollment)

  • ●  military, police, and firefighters (must be active duty and show ID)

  • ●  casino industry employees (must show ID)

  • ●  with eligible tour bus operators

    “Skiing and snowboarding would be so much more popular if they weren’t so expensive.” Shane Gadbaw, CEO of the resort, explained. “When we smashed our single day attendance record on the first free Thursday last year, we learned immediately how critical price is when trying out a new resort. We already knew from experience that after one visit, most guests love what they experience here and look forward to coming back.”

    Since opening in 2010, this ‘boutique’ all­seasons mountain resort located in Beaver, Utah (just 3.5 hours north of Las Vegas) has pursued a path to become the skiing and snowboarding destination­of­choice in the southwest. Eagle Point offers a balance of family­friendly terrain, the steepest slopes in southern Utah and a high­quality dining and entertainment experience.

    “The Second Home concept also relates directly to our dynamic new development phase ­­we’re adding homesites, new condos and a hotel so that we can accommodate more guests during the peak times,” adds Gadbaw.

Notable improvements for the upcoming season include a surface lift to transport guests to a popular cluster of Eagle Point’s steepest runs, which previously had been accessed by a snowcat. Guests also will enjoy a variety of new delicious hot food options on an expedited basis from a newly renovated kitchen in the Skyline Cafe. Finally, the resort will reveal an expanded terrain park and introduce terrain­based instruction in its snow sports school.

The $25 lift ticket promotion will run all season long from the resort’s anticipated opening day of December 20 through its closing day in early April.

Eagle Point Resort located 18 miles east of historic Beaver, UT and a scenic 3.5 hour drive from Las Vegas or Salt Lake City, is an all­seasons destination resort offering snow sports, lodging, high­quality dining and entertainment, mountain biking, summer activities and day excursions to nearby attractions like Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks. The resort features over 600 skiable acres, 40 named runs, 1500 vertical feet, 5 lifts and endless adjacent backcountry terrain.
