Fyve Ep. 19: Eagle Point Utah

From Fyve_Snowboards via Vimeo:
The FYVE team was invited to Ski Eagle Point just outside of Beaver Utah for a week to check out what their resort had to offer and boy were we impressed…..The Northern hemisphere has been off to a weird season with some places getting pounded on with snow but for most this is not the case. Some of the big resorts have massive amounts of snowmaking equipment and even then there is no guarantee of a good park, this was definitely not the case at Eagle Point. With not even 1 snow gun on the hill you wouldn’t even notice the low snow season. Eagle Point is literally “a diamond in the rough” with good steeps, amazing tree lines and one hell of a park setup. The hospitality was unreal with cozy cabins that are ride/ski in/out and a great lodge thats fully equipped. These boys and girl took advantage of not having tons of rats snaking lines, I think we only saw a few people that didn’t work there the whole time. This place reminds me of an early June Mountain with good terrain and a great park. Thanks to Shawn “Mongo” Darling with ParkFab and Park Manager as well as BJ in marketing and the CEO Shane Gadbaw for all the help and such an amazing time. We can’t wait till next time……….
