This laid-back community is located 52 miles from Provo and 17 miles from the Manti-La Sal National Forest and is nestled in the foothills of the majestic Manti-La Sal mountain range and is open to the public. Many a child has grown up playing on the mountain and continue the legacy with their children and grandchildren. Come enjoy the peace, quiet and fresh air of the beautiful Sanpete County and all of the amenities of Skyline Mountain Resort.
Skyline Mountain Resort was established in 1965 under the name of Sports Haven International, as a private member hunting ground. Members would purchase non-deeded lots where one could camp or build their cabin and hunt freely.
As time went on, other amenities were added to encourage family participation. Improvements such as, a clubhouse, rental cabins, RV pads with hookups, pool w/slide, and a tennis court. There was a time when you could rent a horse by the hour or by the day.
With the development also came power, which is available to each lot owner.
A full-time water system has been installed for homes/cabins in the lower sections of the resort. there is water availible at various stations.
Due to the high volume of cabins and activity, and state law requiring a 1-mile separation from any dwelling and the firing of guns, hunting was eliminated in the early 2000’s.
There were requests from the members, and the community, for a golf course. After careful planning, it began with 3 holes, then grew to 5 then 7 holes. In 2005 the final two holes were finished bringing it to a 9-hole course. Since 2005, many improvements have been made to the golf course…including trees, bathrooms, ball washers and beautiful benches where you can sit and enjoy the game and beautiful surroundings.
Deeds for their individual lots were issued to the members in February of 2015.
The resort was under the management and loving care of Joe and Janis Hanks for 38 years, until his passing in May of 2017. We are now under new management in the office.
The name was officially changed to Skyline Mountain Resort sometime in the late 1970’
Skyline Mountain resort offers all types of recreation year-round for members. There is a large winter/summer playground up on the mountain for snowmobile riders, snow boarders, 4-wheelers, etc up Fairview canyon.
In winter, the roads in the “full-time area” are plowed and the main trails are groomed for winter use for the members to reach their properties.
Our gated community provides a comforting level of security for all of our members…both those who live here full-time and those who come less often.
