Brian Head is the best way for skiers and riders to experience legendary Utah snow without the prices, crowds, and driving hassle of the Cottonwoods. The resort has a fair amount of beginner and intermediate terrain with wide-open groomers and wide-spaced trees. The scenery is pretty special for a ski resort due to its proximity to Zion and Bryce Canyon Natl. Parks. It's like skiing in the desert. The snow is classic Utah dry powder, and cold temps keep snow soft and light days after a storm. The totals might not be as much as Alta or Snowbird, but on par with most Colorado resorts. Upper-level terrain is lacking, althought the Giant Steps side is more of a challenge than the Navajo side. The resort can get pretty cold due to the high evelation, with highs dipping into the single digits during the middle of the winter season. Ticket prices are hard to beat anywhere in the West.
Good Utah snow, great prices, unique scenery
Little advanced/expert terrain, can get cold.

Great mountain for beginners and kids. If you stay away from holidays the lines are usually very short and you can get A LOT of runs in. Food options are very limited and they close early. Staff is very friendly and helpful.
Great Beginner/Family Friendly Mountain
Need more Food options
Booking and front desk experience is very very poor. Not friendly staff

Do not buy your tickets online unless you plan to put your life on the line driving there. We bought tickets online and UDOT was recommending to stay off roads because of heavy snow. We tried calling resort and were on hold for 4 hours. Never answered. We looked at weather cams and 143 was not plowed so we decided at noon to forgo skiing and try next day. It was still white out conditions at resort but we made it up there following a plow. We tried to see if they would honor our tickets not used from previous day and they said absolutely not. Spend the extra 20 to 25 the day off so just in case of the weather is so bad you can’t get up there at least you have not lost hundreds like we did. Horrible policy. If UDOT says don’t drive they should honor your tickets another day. No one hardly skiing but they still would not budge or give a discount.
Good slopes
No refund
The people were super friendly. great all mountain terrain, some flat spots on catwalks need re graded. More food choices.
Not very crowded, great skiing, no dopers
Long drive and not many restaurants nearby

Good skiing for the group. We had skiiers who were beginners to intermediate. What we liked most is that we really got a chance to ski the whole day because the lift lines were not crazy. Less time spent waiting to get on the lifts and more time skiing. The snow when we went was great!
Great accessibility from condo we rented, Less waiting on lifts. Competent and friendly employees. Our condo at Timberbrook Village had a pool, whirlpool and sauna, which was great at the end of the day.
The town rolls up the streets too early and just a couple of choices for casual dining. Yet what we tried, the pizza and the Thai place were great!
Wayne Kerr
This place is great for families and learning to ski/board. Not as much expert terrain. And the accessible trails are spread out around the mountain in various places loosely connected by terrain or by free shuttle bus. There are never huge crowds, unlike places in California. Compared to CA, this is an absolute dream destination. Compared to Northern Utah, it is a budget friendly little brother ski resort.
Affordable and accessible
Limited total runs with steep terrain
This is great place to vacation, small town but so fun to ski. Personnel are so friendly and helpful not only at the resort but the businesses and restaurants as well. Highly recommend making the trip and the drive from Las Vegas was really easy.
No lines, great place for the family
Kelly Beamsley
Probably the last time I would visit this place. I visited the place back 2018 & took ski school when it was half the price ($150 with all equipment was included). This time at ski school no equipment was include so it was twice as expensive ($330). In addition, the customer service was not completely military friendly. Brian Head Resort does NOT believe all military veterans deserve a discount for service to one's country. Again, the Customer Experience was a bait and switch feeling for the ski school. I would NOT recommend this location to any military families since there are plenty of other ski resorts North of this area.
Not sure
Expensive SERVICE under New Management

Needs steeper terrain. The new management raised prices drastically and they haven't done any real improvements. The crowds are drunk and it's changed the good family vibe that use to prevail.
Tucked away, use to be owned by a much better family - friendly company. The area has unfortunately changed so much since Snow bowl took over.
Snowbowl owns it now.
