Brian Head Resort   |  Adam Clark
  • Status: Open
  • Weather: Chance Snow Showers, 15F

Anticipation builds as you turn from I-15 to Utah's Patchwork Parkway National Scenic Byway (state Route 143) and begin the uphill drive to 9,600 feet. Surrounded by contrasting evergreen spruce and aspen, Brian Head Resort boasts the highest base among Utah's resorts, and is the only ski and snowboard resort to showcase snow-dusted red rock hoodoos from the nearby Cedar Breaks National Monument and Bryce Canyon National Park. Three hours of driving from Las Vegas or under four hours from Salt Lake City, deliver you to Brian Head's spectacular terrain and 360 inches of annual snowfall in the winter, or incredible range of summer activities in the cooler mountain air.

First Tracks: Got little ones who are itching to get on the slopes? The First Tracks lessons provide an instructor to ski students ages three to four and snowboard students ages three to six. 

Tiny Tracks: Tiny Tracks lessons are an excellent option for young children who have skied once or twice but need help building their confidence. These lessons are available for ski students ages five to six.

Note: Parents are encouraged to drop their children off for lessons and let the instructors do their job. Parents can watch lessons from a distance if they feel more comfortable but should not distract their children from learning.
