BEAVER — The southern Utah ski area Eagle Point opened for the season this weekend, a month later than last winter because of a lack of snowmaking.
Eagle Point is the rebranded ski area once known as Elk Meadows, about 18 miles east of Beaver. It had been shut down for eight years when a New York hedge fund took over operations.
Eagle Point operations manager Lane Tucker says the slopes are covered with 12 to 18 inches of snow.
Eagle Point had a banner season when more than 600 inches fell last winter. The ski area got so much snow in December 2010 — seven feet from a single storm — that it lost power for four days.
