Brian Head’s 50 ski runs and six lifts are on two mountains. Navajo is mostly beginner, withtwo short intermediate stretches. Brian Head has short two beginner runs. A free shuttle busconnects the two mountains. There are two terrain parks. Although the base can accommodate2,000 people, Brian Head is primarily a weekend playground for Las Vegas. During the week, itis empty and cheap, with $40 lift tickets.Because the resort sits high up in the mountains, at 9,600 to 11,307 feet, ski conditions are superbduring a long ski season. Brian Head averages 400 inches of snow a year.Note that winter access by road is on UT Route 143 only from north of the resort via Parowan, thehighway crossing Cedar Breaks National Monument being closed in the winter (last winter, thesnow was 33 feet deep at the Cedar Breaks visitor center).The Cedar Breaks Lodge and dinning room at Brian Head get very good reviews, but we haven’tstayed there. There are also couple places to stay in Parowan. Although Brian Head is an attractive place to ski, I did not find it to be one of my favorites,because the pitch of the runs is too variable for my tastes. If you can handle intermediate runs,be sure to go to the top of the Giant Steps lift on a clear day for the view into the bowl of CedarBreaks National Monument.
