Eagle Point Ski Resort Description:

Eagle Point Outpost Grill Base Lodge
Base lodge: Outpost Grill

Eagle Point Ski Resort in Utah provides a mountain for two distinct levels of ability with dual road and parking access to allow one to embrace only one experience if necessary. The beginner and intermediate skiers can head to and park at Eagle's Nest/Skyline and experience only the beginner and intermediate runs.

Those wishing to experience advanced terrain can head to and park at Canyonside Lodge and play all day off of the extensive terrain available from the Lookout quad chair lift. All terrain is connected but the split is clear.

For those who don't ski or board, a tubing hill is available from Skyline lodge at the top of Skyline lift. Eagle Point is also surrounded by some of Utah's finest national parks such as Zion, Bryce canyon, Canyonlands, Arches National Park and Grand Staircase National Monuments.

Eagle Point Resort Terrain:

Beginners and Intermediates:

The terrain at Eagle Point is split clearly into the beginners and intermediate side of the resort (left side of the trail map) and the advanced side of the resort (right side of the trail map). Once on the beginner side, it is unlikely that one will mistakenly enter any threatening terrain.

Backcountry Terrain:

Backcountry terrain at the top of Monarch triple chair

This backcountry access gate can be found at the top of the Monarch triple chair. This gate will lead to a ridge hike which will in turn lead to some spectacular open areas. The five backcountry access gates are marked as orange triangles on the trail map for easy access to areas beyond the resort boundaries opened in cooperation with the Fishlake National Forest Service. One should have all of the backcountry gear, avalanche beacons, training and preparation before attempting this terrain.
Note: The backcountry areas are not patrolled and have no avalanche control.

Eagle Point Terrain Parks:

Terrain Park Ski jump

Eagle Point does have terrain park but you will be lured towards the open mountain terrain on a powder day. The terrain park is accessible from the Monarch Triple Chair.

The outpost grill has a bar, two fireplaces, a private lounge, and a dance floor. Bring your own party.

You will not freeze of go hungry with all of the Lodge options at Eagle Point. Skyline Lodge at the peak of the beginner/intermediate mountain and The Lookout at the peak of the advanced mountain as well as the base lodge will both feed you and protect you from the cold.

Eagle Point dining options:
  • The Outpost Grill: lunch and dinner 11:00am to 11:00pm daily
  • The Sykline Cafe: in the Skyline Lodge adjacent to the upper parking lot 8:30am to 5:00pm daily

Village & Shopping:

While Eagle Point has a base lodge, there is no village. The closest town is Beaver UT (30 min drive). You will have to head into Salt Lake City or make the long haul to Park City for your shopping. Locally the Skyline Lodge shop can take care of your alpine needs (including repair and rentals).
