Full review

My family has had season passes at Eagle Point for three seasons. We live in Northern AZ, so have to drive about 330 miles one way to get there. For us, it is so worth it. Our son has basically learned to ski at Eagle Point. The beginner terrain is very easy to learn on and the lift that services that terrain is slow and gentle. For adults, the canyon across the highway has tremendous variety to offer in the diamonds. Moguls, steeps, powder glades, and long wide open blacks. Over these three years, we have gotten to know most of the staff members. They are as friendly and helpful as you'll find everywhere. This season (13-14) we are paying full price for our season passes (2 adults and 1 kid) and it costing just over 900 dollars including tax! Where else are you going to get that deal in the Rockies? Do not expect a great night life, remember you are in Utah after all. Brian Head is a resort 40 miles from Eagle Point (we skied there for years before Eagle Point opened) but it has virtually no steeps, very poor glades, and is going to cost you a lot more cash. The lifts at Eagle Point are slow and the nightlife is non-existent. However, you will not find better skiing or a better value anywhere in this area.
