If it’s wildlife you are looking for then look no further. Enjoy a day at Puffer Lake watching the Bald Eagles fish, or the bright and beautiful colors of the Mountain Blue Bird. Head to the mountain meadows of Big Flat to get a good look at majestic Elk, or bring your binoculars and head up one of the surrounding peaks to try your luck and finding a Mountain Goat. One thing is for sure, there is no shortage or wildlife around Eagle Point should you choose to find it.
The Tushar Mountains surrounding Eagle Point Resort offer hundreds of miles of trails for mountain biking, ATV riding and hiking, while the valleys beneath the 12,000 foot peaks provide serene backdrops for canoeing and fishing on the many lakes and streams. Guests can rent mountain bikes from the resort, and a return-shuttle assists those riding down the many single track trails on the resort property.
All of us at Eagle Point would like to thank you, our friends and guests, for all the smiles, the laughter and the compliments to our amazing, passionate staff. And yes, thank you for the feedback as well on how we can continue improving the guest experience. Thank you for keeping the fire burning in the Lookout Warming Hut on cold days. Thank you for driving up slick roads on powder days, and packing the kids in the car to arrive from Southern California for a long weekend that is never long enough.
After all of those memorable ski trips renting a condo, staying at your friend’s place or in a hotel, you may be considering buying your own mountain property. There are certainly benefits to owning versus renting including convenience and pride of ownership, not to mention the possibility of appreciation. However, there are also several points to consider with such an investment.
With three more weekends to go in the 2016/2017 season, the skiing and riding conditions are excellent thanks to a snowpack over 5 feet. As we count down to the end of one of the most memorable seasons in resort history, Eagle Point features a fun-filled lineup of events planned through our closing date of Sunday, April 2 both on the mountain and in the village.
To ensure that your experience is as smooth as it will be memorable, we recommend you consider the following prior to your arrival:
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.
Shane Gadbaw has seen his fair share of corporate entertaining, company retreats, and blowout parties. So after he and his business partners bought their own Utah ski resort, he did something almost no other major resort in this country can match – he started renting the whole place out to private groups. Located in Southern Utah, a world apart from the better known Park City and Cottonwood Canyons resorts, Eagle Point is roughly equidistant from Vegas and Salt Lake City, and easy enough for companies in either to hire a bus to transport clients or staffers.
