In 30+ years I have never seen it so bad. We left two days early ... No point in staying and the damage to our skies was significant. Brianhead has new owners this year and it shows that they have no ski resort experience. Yes they put a little money into the lodges but not much (3.5M). Mother Nature has not cut them any breaks - no snow and they have exhausted their snow making water reservoirs. The new owners come from the golf industry and it's evident they have no clue what they are doing. The new food manager is awful ( burgers bad, pizza bad, no salad bar, empty cold cases, no sundries - not only is the food awful but he doesn't know anything about skiers or retail. The basic of $ per square foot escape him... Honestly you can't even buy a candy bar on the Mtn... The only ski resort in the US that you can't get a Snickers at. The staff is not happy with the new systems - which are not implemented correctly ... Ugh, what a disaster.
Also, if they survive this winter their goal is to turn BH into a Mammoth East, and alternative for the So Cal /LA snow boarding crowd. They are adding two more terrains parks for a total of 3 ... Sorry folks, but say good by to the old family friendly BH... sad
I grew up skiing here, my kids have grown up here but even when the snow comes back I don't think we will be... It's time to move on to Deer Valley and Little Cottonwood C.

Windy and icy... Rocks everywhere... Food prices are ridiculous. Brian Head used to be a good deal but no longer. I'll try eagle point before I give up on southern Utah skiing.
If you are complaining about the $5 tax, then you are in the wrong sport. First time in brian head, and we are having a blast. Some things on the mountain are a little unorganized, but as far as snow- our cabin has snow in the woods for sledding. Very happy about that. Skiing is decent. Definitely could use a storm. Groomed on the trails, off trail is powdery, but rocks are coming through in spots, so its a little scary. On trail is like typical spring skiing. Giant steps area has faster lifts and shorter lines.

The past couple of posts are spot on. Only one initial way down from Giant Steps with ice, rocks, crowds of beginners, bombers is a bummer.
Why no overnight snowmaking as surely cold enough over night? Seems like more attention is made to the tubing park than the trails.
And what's up with the 10% tax on the lift tickets??? That was a surprise. No mention of that anywhere until the cashier pops that one on you.
