Spring 2022 Real Estate Update
In my last update, I made a New Year’s resolution to seek moments of complete satisfaction, to snowboard more and to spend as much time as possible with my 18 year old son. I love it when a plan comes together! I recently finished a 12 day trip out west with back-to-back weekends at Eagle Point. My son and his three friends, all high school seniors, by their own planning, organized a guys ski and snowboard trip. It was really fun and I was mostly all smiles hanging out with my son and his friends in the waning days of their carefree high school lifestyles. They spent two full days skiing and riding, joking and eating, and more eating.
I found several moments of complete satisfaction during that trip and thoroughly enjoyed watching my son create his own memories and traditions with friends. When I first arrived at Eagle Point in 2011 and my son was 7 years old, I hoped that he would grow up with fond memories of our family adventure owning the ski resort. It is safe to say “so far, so good”.
With winter operations winding down on April 3, I’ve shifted my focus to the busy upcoming construction season with notable developments discussed below.
Skyline Terrace -- Beaver County’s Planning and Zoning Commission approved the preliminary plat for this new ski-in/ski-out subdivision of 9 condos, 6 homes and up to 10 studio cabins which will break ground in May 2022. The entire project is under contract with buyers who have given non-refundable deposits (except the studio cabins which will be held and operated as dedicated guest lodging units). I’m really excited for this project which will add a variety of overnight accommodations while opening a new development area near the Skyline Lodge.
