Utah's highest elevation resort, Brian Head Ski Resort offers three excellent terrain parks (with more than 30 snow features including rails, fun boxes and a half-pipe) and an entire mountain devoted to children and beginners. The resort also offers spa treatments, sleigh rides, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and snow tubing (6 lanes to choose from). In addition, there is a wide variety of lodging and dining options available.
Brian Head Ski Resort is a full-service resort in southern Utah, located only three hours northeast of Las Vegas, Nevada, and 4 hours southwest of Salt Lake City, off of Interstate 15 in Brian Head. Family Travel Forum recently honored Brian Head Resort as a "Top Family Getaway for Family Travelers." Fun - Affordable - Uncrowded (even though an adult day pass is only $40), probably one of the best kept skiing and snowboarding secrets in the southwestern states...
Brian Head Ski Resort is on the Markagunt Plateau, just over the hill from Cedar Breaks National Monument and Ashdown Gorge Wilderness.
