FREE SKIING for kids 17 & Under

Savings can top 60% at Eagle Point Resort in Southern Utah with its new "Kids 17 and under ski/ride for free" lodging packages. Savings will vary, depending on lodging selected and a group's number of skiers/riders ages 7 to 17 -each of which will receive a free lift ticket for each night’s stay. Kids must be accompanied by a paying adult and each condo or hotel room has a maximum occupancy.  There are several condos or hotel rooms with a maximum capacity greater than four people. There is no limitation on number of nights a group can stay and earn free lift tickets, but the offer is not available December 20, 2014 through January 1, 2015; January 17-19, 2015 and February 14-16, 2015. Season typically ends in April. Kids 6 and under, and Seniors 70 and over, ski/ride free all season with no blackouts. Note: Beaver's altitude is 5902 feet, while Eagle Point's base elevation is 9,100 feet. Reservations can be made at 855-EAGLE-PT  (855-324-5378).

Their total cost for lodging and lift tickets would be $762.77, including taxes. If purchased at a la carte pricing, the full price for this group would be $1,186.77. Thus, the savings are 35.75%, or $424, for the group.

NEW SURFACE LIFT

For advanced and expert skiers/riders, the new Tushar Peaks Surface Lift will serve Southern Utah's steepest black diamond runs: Delano Drop, Satisfaction, Donner's Descent, Missing Linc, Runaway Carter and Vertigo, which is THE steepest run in Southern Utah at 31 degree pitch. Previously, these tree-lined, black-diamond runs were accessible only by hiking or occasional snowcat service. These runs are Southern Utah's only black-diamond runs boasting the serious degrees of pitch required to create enough gravity force strong enough to ski or ride deep powder without bogging down in the powder. Eagle Point also offers renowned backcountry touring just outside of the resort boundaries -as well as Southern Utah's best tree-lined groomers for beginners and intermediates, along with PSI-AASI certified instructors for all levels.  

EXPANDED TERRAIN PARK

Eagle Point's expanded Park Lab Terrain Park, created by ParkFab, will offer 12 new features for winter 1014-15, with progressions for all levels. These will include several features from the Campus Rail Jam, which will complement Park Lab's existing 30' Double Kink Rasta Rail, 10' Junkyard Satellite Dish, 20' 6” Single Barrel Rail, and 10' Launch Rail, creating one of the largest terrain parks in the region.
