  • We were at Brian Head for 4 days around Spring Break. We chose Brian Head just due to the closeness to SoCal. Only about a 6 1/2 hour drive. Surprisingly the mountain and resort area was not crowded. ...  read more »
  • Brian Head resort, visited in early September on Labor day. Mainly on the weekend came the families with children. Adults especially to do was nothing except take a ropeway or sit at one of the bars. I think that the ski season it attracts much more tourists.

  • The village is very small and not fine to visit in the summer months. Perhaps for winter sports fun.

  • 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.
  • 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!
  • It's so fun. Great in all seasons. The remodels make it beautiful. It could use more remodel work
  • Would give 4 or 5, but when you are in line 10 minutes before lift shuts down... 4 pm in Late February.... They should let you on lift. Very disappointing when you have kids in school until 3:30 and all the kids want to do is show you you their skills, and the lady attendant at 4 on the nose says anyone behind is asked out.... In late February, the sun does not go down until 6:30. Resort should adjust stop time accordingly. 10 am until 4 pm is too short in late Feb. We have been coming here for six years straight and have always had a great time. Just hope this resort is not loosing it's charm.
