When the temperatures drops and snow falls, the winter just heats up with skiing and snowboarding in Southern Utah. Utah is famous for having the “Greatest Snow on Earth” and we are fortunate to have a ski resort here in the heart of the red rock country of southern Utah – Brian Head Resort.
While Brian Head has gone through some major renovations to modernize their amenities, they still take an old school approach to running the mountain. This place has everything you want out of a Utah ski resort; the same dry Utah powder as her sisters to the north but with ticket prices that don’t break the bank. Brian Head is a mellow ski resort where everyone knows your name and you’re treated like family – minus the weird uncle and the head noogies.
Brian Head Resort receives over 400 inches of famous Utah powder every year and features Utah’s highest base elevation at 9,600 ft. with a lift served vertical drop of 1,320 ft. from Giant Steps. With renovated lodges, new tubing hill, new night skiing options, and magic carpet surface lifts, Brian Head has improved the overall experience. The resort offers over 650 acres, with eight chairlifts and 71 runs.
