Free Skiing! at Eagle Point
It's base elevation is 9,100 feet and it has 1,500 feet of elevation change and 600 skiable acres. It's tucked into the scenic Tushar Mountains, 18 miles (by road) up Beaver Canyon. Because it's Utah's 14th ski resort and far from big population areas (3.5 hours from both Las Vegas and Salt Lake City), they are having some awesome deals to attract people. These include residents of Great Britain ski for free. Residents of California ski for free. Residents of Nevada ski free January 16, February 13, and March 13. And everyone skis free on Thursdays in January and February.
The free skiing is definitely working, as the seven of us had never been there before, and many of the people we met skiing hadn't either. All the condos at the ski resort were booked, and employees said the season was going well.
