  • First visit to Brian head. 28cm of snow greeted us on our arrival and the place was like a winter wonderland. Not too crowded at this end of the ski season and no waiting on lifts. Great visit.  more »
  • Summer activities was a big disappointment. My kids loved the zip line, but on 7/16/2016, whoever was responsible of putting on harnesses for the zip line denied my 6 year old child a chance to ride the second time around as he said he was too small!! But, this same person put a harness on him the first time and he was able to ride. Second time around he said he was too small and that he shouldn't have rode the first time, if he was not big enough the first time, why did you pit a harness on him that fit. The kid was lucky I was up the trail when he sent him away or he would have gotten ripped into. My wife had to console my sad child. Way to go for making guest family, because you FAILED big time. If I could, I would give you zero stars. I will never support Brian head again. Hopefully, the worker who denied my kid can find a gig with his base guitar, because he shouldn't be around people, he pretty much ruined my impression of the resort.
  • Great place to ski / snowboard. Their ski school for kids is above and beyond all expectations.
  • I took a quick day trip to Brian Head Resort and had a blast. On busy weekends you'll need to get there early if you're going to rent equipment because once in a great while they'll run out (snowboard equipment runs out before skiing equipment). I arrived on a Saturday that was relatively warm outside so the weather was great for snowboarding. The one problem was parking - in the mud. The upper parking lots were dirt so, as the snow melted, they became mud pits which weren't the best thing to drive my vehicle through, not to mention walking to/from my vehicle. I would expect them to put down some rock or gravel at some point to fix this issue. Other than that, service throughout the resort was great. Whether we were at the rental booth or the little food court, service was great. I had a bacon cheeseburger (which was great - although the bacon was a little undercooked because they were so busy) and later had a white mocha at the Starbucks. The eating area was constantly being cleaned and kept up. There wasn't ever a trash can too full and all of the staff were courteous. The slopes are great and well groomed. The line to the top of the tallest slope is usually only about 10 minutes - even on a busy day. To save some time, hit up the single riders line and you won't have to wait as long.
  • its great if you love snow. I dont but my friends loved it there and they know more about skiing then I do. The alcohol made things enjoyable!
  • Personally, as a Vegas local, I'd rather pony up the extra cash and time to ride here than go to Lee canyon. The prices are ...well, not great but the snow tends to be phenomenal and the runs are just sooooo much fun. Such a great ski resort. And the best is renting a cabin for the weekend, riding all day, eating drinking and hot tub, then repeat and go home!!!
