Eagle Point Resort is working on several enhancements to its facility and infrastructure, including improving its online booking engine for lodging reservations, renovating and modernizing dozens of condominiums, introducing spa services, adding menu options at its most popular dining facility, upgrading grooming capabilities. The resort also announced the unveiling of a model home at the new Aspen Crest at Eagle Point collection of ski-in/ski-out homesites and future condominium community currently in development in the heart of the resort.
“Last year, we launched our bold Vision 2020 plan to expand the resort amenities, improve on existing facilities, and develop additional lodging and home ownership options while maintaining the charm and aesthetics that distinguish Eagle Point from others,” said Eagle Point Resort’s owner and CEO, Shane Gadbaw. “We are right on schedule with that plan and are staying laser focused on transforming ourselves while holding onto the unique resort character for which guests continuously praise us. This past winter season, Southern Californians flocked to Eagle Point, and we think we know why. Our staff realizes that guests from Utah, Nevada, Arizona, and beyond come to Eagle Point to avoid the challenges of congestion, which guests may experience at mega-resorts. Our vision to expand but not explode continues to reflect that sentiment. Among all the positive feedback, what we also heard from guests is a desire for various improvements and modernizations of lodging units and we set out to begin transforming many of them as soon as we ceased winter operations. We are prepared to offer the best possible ski-in/ski-out lodging experience, at the best value, for what we hope will be yet another banner winter season beginning in December.”
Eagle Point Resort boasts several new recent improvements:
—Its website is improved so that guests can easily view property features, photos, up-to-the-minute rates, and availability of any lodging property. Also, to meet increased demand, the resort has expanded the number of condominium rentals available to guests.
—Dozens of condominiums were renovated during the spring and summer months, focusing on remodeled interiors and expanded Wi-Fi service.
—A massage service will be available at Canyonside Lodge during peak periods.
—A new PistenBully ParkPro Snowcat, purchased towards the end of the 2016–17 winter season, will be fully operational this upcoming season, adding significantly more grooming capabilities for all three peaks.
—The resort expanded its business center, located at Canyonside Lodge, where guests access internet, print documents, and handle other personal computing needs.
—The Canyonside Bar & Grill will offer a quick lunch menu Saturdays and during busy holidays.
—Construction is underway on four new homes by owners who purchased lots in the resort’s new subdivisions.
“Guests appreciated our all-in-one, cloud-based solution to book lodging, and it helped push occupancy to at or near capacity every weekend,” said Gadbaw. “We’ll continue to reinvest both in terms of labor and technology to make the entire guest lodging experience as seamless as possible from initial property search to on-resort customer assistance when needed. People covet convenience, so over the summer we have expanded our suite of on-mountain lodging options, which will allow more residents to book their vacation directly through the resort and enjoy a truly hassle free ski-in/ski-out vacation.”
Aspen Crest offers private home and condo sites with an all-season connection to over 1.5 million acres within the surrounding Fishlake National Forest. The ski-in/ski-out residential development is the nation’s newest slopeside year-round set of homesites and will offer exclusive access through the resort’s private 1,200 acres to the forest beyond for skiing, biking, hiking, or riding. Planning and design are also underway for the community’s second phase, consisting of ski-in/ski-out condos. This winter, Aspen Crest will unveil condominium concepts and begin forming an interest list for purchasing.
Eagle Point Resort is also now the home of Aspen Equity Real Estate, an independently owned real estate agency. The agency will focus on the real estate marketplace for the surrounding area, catering to buyers and sellers with a highly skilled, locally knowledgeable, community-driven service team.
