While Brian Head Resort has recently gone through major renovations to modernize their amenities and base lodges, they still take an old-school approach to running the mountain. Which means Brian Head has everything you want of a Utah ski resort – champagne powder and expertly groomed runs-minus the crowds, the lift lines and ticket prices that don’t break the bank. The resort prides itself on providing a relaxed, super friendly ski experience perfect for first timers and families. Don’t be surprised if you’re greeted with a “how’s it going?” or a “hey there, what up?!” because staff recognize you from your visit. Here you’re just like family- minus the head noogies.
Entertain your inner adrenaline junkie with zip-line, chairlift rides, and disc golf and bungee trampoline. If you are up for a physical challenge, spend the day at the climbing wall and then ride your cares away at the alpine tubing. The mountain bike season is short but sweet and generally begins mid-June and runs through mid-October. Round trip shuttle service is available by local shuttle companies to take you to over 200 miles of backcountry and downhill trails and the Brian Head Resort chairlift provides access on weekends to incredible trails featuring ups, downs, jumps, bank turns and freestyle elements.
