Brian Head Resort

Winter in Brian Head

The best snow on Earth, a family environment, and affordable pricing make Brian Head Resort ideal for everyone. And with a mini zip-line, mountain biking, alpine slide, and more in the summer, the fun never stops.

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. This means Brian Head has everything you want in a Utah ski resort — champagne powder and expertly groomed runs, minus the crowds, short 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’s up?!” because staff recognizes you from your visit. Here you’re just like family—minus the head noogies.


Covering over 650 acres, the resort has two connected mountains, Giant Steps, and Navajo, offering 71 runs and 8 chair lifts, two of which are high-speed quads. The newly branded terrain parks, named collectively The Training Grounds, feature a construction theme with 20-plus new features. Training Grounds consists of two progressive park areas, Detour, and Bypass, allowing visitors to improve their park skills with a state-of-the-art setup.

Brian Head Resort has partnered with Snow Operating LLC to bring you Terrain Based Learning™. Simply put, Terrain Based Learning™ uses shaped and sculpted snow to make learning to ski and snowboard easier, quicker, and more fun.

Here’s the real scoop—powder days at Brian Head are truly awesome. With very few hardcore locals to ski it out, you can ride fresh powder run after run. It’s not uncommon to be riding powder days after the storm has passed.
