BEAVER, UT-- Coming off a record breaking winter 2015-2016 season that saw a 25% increase of resort visits compared to year prior, near or at capacity lodging virtually every weekend, and 350 inches of Utah’s “Greatest Snow on Earth”®, Eagle Point Resort, located in the majestic Tushar mountains of southern Utah, plans to keep the momentum going with expanded services that are bound to attract more of the discerning Southern Californian ski and snowboard clientele. The resort is also in the planning stages of extensive capital improvements to fulfill its grand Vision 2020 plan.
While transforming itself into a word-class destination, the resort remains committed to distinguishing itself from the mega resorts by adding lodging options and amenities with a keen focus on maintaining its unique charm and appeal.
Looking ahead to the 2016-2016 winter season, Eagle Point Resort will be adding a new enhanced online booking engine for lodging reservations, rolling out the The Mystery Machine Diner Food Truck, and will offer sales and tours of Aspen Crest at Eagle Point—a selection of ski-in / ski out homesites further adding to the authentic resort experience:
“We’re seeing more and more visitors from beyond our local cities and Las Vegas, including guests from Southern California. The secret is out and people realize that there are other winter options within reasonable travel distance.” said Eagle Point Resort’s owner and CEO, Shane Gadbaw. “This is creating pent-up demand for ownership options, and we expect this trend to continue. Not only are guests looking for an escape to the mountains, but they crave an escape from the crowds and poor snow conditions that often plague many resorts in California. After the snow season, our cooler drier location serves as getaway from the summer heat as well.”
Eagle Point Resort also announced preliminary details for Vision 2020, which includes significant upgrades to the infrastructure of the resort for 2020 and beyond. The ambitious extensive capital improvements promise to transform the guest experience of the resort. The plan includes new lodging opportunities, installation of a snow making system, new lifts to access many acres of skiable terrain, and the introduction of summer features to create a a world-class, year-round destination responsibly integrated into the surrounding Fishlake National Forest.
“Life is tranquil and peaceful up here and we plan to keep it that way, while we look to expand and add amenities. What we have created at Eagle Point allows friends and families to connect with one another, and focus on what matters—making memories while skiing or riding great snow or spending summer breaks in the comfort of the mountains,” added Gadbaw. “With virtually no lift lines, Southern California residents can drive a little more to ski a lot more. And for the cost of one off-mountain hotel night elsewhere, you can enjoy a more convenient, ski-in /ski-out experience for an entire weekend.”
