Full review

I went to Brian Head on Christsmas Day 2007. Went with the wife and family, and we all had a great time. It was my first time snowboarding, and I was hooked after my first run. I stuck to the beginner trails in the morning, and hit the intermediate stuff after lunch. The beginner trails had a lot of flat spots where I lost all my momentum (largely due to being a beginner I'm sure) but the intermediate runs were awesome. Tons of powder, to the point where on my last run I turned a bit too much to the left and hit a snowpile no one had touched all day, fell down and got stuck up to my waist in powder. Ate lunch at the buffet, good stuff for a decent price. All the staff I encountered was very friendly. Can't wait to go back!
