Great resort and close by to Las Vegas. Hoping to go for an extended time over Christmas break. My family has always enjoyed Brian Head. We have even come up here with our friends so that all the kids could be together. ... More

This is my hometown resort. It has been a hidden gem for years and is gaining popularity. Good Utah snow. The runs aren't the longest, but there very good features with a variety and is usually not too crowded. Friendly, fun inviting atmosphere. I love Brian Head.... More

Brian Head's my hometown resort, so it always holds a special place in my heart. I love all the Wasatch resorts though. Have never had a bad day on a Utah mountain.
Superb!

Great resort. Good skiing and boarding for all skill levels. When ever I have been there the lines have never been too long. The staff is kind and quick to assist.
