Brian Head Resort wants to give those who are active duty Military, National Guard or Reservists a moment to “relax and unwind” on the slopes.

To do so, management at the southern Utah resort will give away full-day adult lift tickets on Monday, Jan. 16, which is Martin Luther King Day. All persons who make the trip up to Brian Head and present military identification at the ticket window get a lift ticket in return – free of charge.

“Brian Head wants to honor and thank those who serve our country,” said Brian Head’s Sales, Marketing and PR Manager, Jon Christoffersen. “They put themselves in harm’s way to protect our freedom. Skiing and snowboarding allows these men and women a chance to relax and unwind like few activities do.”

The holiday adult ticket typically costs $56. Brian Head’s regular price is $49 for adults, $35 for children under 13 and seniors over 65. Each ticket-holder gets to hit some 650 acres of skiable terrain that begins at 9,600 feet in elevation – the highest base elevation in Utah – including two terrain parks for beginners and advanced, respectively.

Brian Head boasts a proximity to several large winter-starved population centers, including Las Vegas three hours away and Phoenix, with is a seven-hour drive. Starting Jan. 21, the resort will run regular bus service from Las Vegas. For travel options, click here
