BEST SEASON: LATE NOVEMBER – MID APRIL | LOCATION: BRIAN HEAD, UTAH
Spend a weekend in Utah’s Highest Resort Town. From a quiet evening by the fire to a snowmobile tour through Cedar Breaks, Brian Head has it all.
WHERE TO STAY
Cozy up by the fireplace and watch the snow fall from the comfort of the Cedar Breaks Lodge. Right on the mountain, the lodge offers easy access to the slopes.
LOOKING FOR MORE: There are plenty of comfortable condos and cabins in Brian Head, with many offering ski in and out access. There is off-the- mountain lodging in Parowan or Cedar City with more dining and entertainment options.
Start the trip out with Night Skiing on the lighted runs of the Blackfoot Chair and Night Tubing on the Giant Step’s hill.
With the advantage of Terrain Based Learning© (sculpted snow to help you have the BEST moves) and dedicated instructors, Brian Head University will have you skiing or snowboarding in no time. (You may also want to check out the First Timer’s Guide to the mountain.)
#1 After resting up and refueling, hit the slopes of Brian Head Resort. Get to know the Navajo side of the mountain first, and then venture over to Giant Steps for a bigger challenge.
#2 Feeling a little exhausted after a morning on the slopes? Rejuvenate at the tranquil Cedar Breaks Day Spa. Relieve all stress and tension with a truly luxurious pampering session.
Apres Ski-Beers, BBQ + Bands! Enjoy authentic Kansas City Style BBQ (made personally by the owner of Brian Head Resort) at the Last Chair Saloon served up with a generous portion of baked beans and the best corn bread you will ever taste. Warm up with a Pioneer (Utah’s own Porter’s Fire Whiskey + Hot Chocolate).
See the backcountry of Brian Head, Dixie National Forest and Cedar Breaks National Monument on a snowmobile with the help of Thunder Mountain Motorsports. Take the 3-hour tour and prepare to be amazed at the 360° view of the giant amphitheater. Or go on a snow-cat tour of Brian Head with Brian Head Adventures.
