Number of runs » 14

Difficulty » Mostly expert and intermediate

Why try it » Multiple opportunities for moderately steep skiing

The ride » Once known as Elk Meadows, and briefly promoted as the Mount Holly Club, Eagle Point is 18 miles east of Beaver, almost equidistant between Salt Lake City and Las Vegas. To get to this chairlift from the main parking area at Skyline Lodge requires a trip down the beginner Big Horn and intermediate Falling Water runs to The Narrows, a fairly long traverse. Once up on Paiute Crossing Ridge, skiers and boarders can get help from one of the resort’s treaded vehicles to climb an uphill portion of trail that leads to several expert runs.

Runs to try

Tunnel Vision » Another way to get to Lookout from Skyline Lodge, its main appeal is giving riders the unusual opportunity to go through a tunnel under the road.

Delano Drop » One of the many steep runs coming off Paiute Crossing Ridge, this is a long straight shot down to the lift, with a good pitch for either powder or bumps.

Tushar » With a long curve before pitching down into The Narrows runout zone, Tushar offers intermediates a little less steepness than they’ll find on the rest of the lower mountain.
