Brian Head Resort is nestled in the Dixie National Forest in Utah's "Color Country," surrounded by majestic views of red-rock spires and warm-hued canyons. It is in the heart of the Grand Circle of National Parks - which includes Zion, Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands and Arches National Parks - and adjacent to Cedar Breaks National Monument.
Brian Head Resort enjoys the best of both worlds – "The Greatest Snow on Earth®" and clear sunny days. Being located at the southern end of Utah’s mountains, where winter’s cold and dry arctic air from the north frequently meet the moist air from the Pacific to create abundant light powder with an average annual snowfall of nearly 360 inches. As Utah’s highest ski resort, with a base elevation of 9,600 feet, Brian Head Resort offers reliable snow and an extended season for downhill and cross-country skiing, snow tubing, snowboarding, and snowshoeing from mid-November through mid-April. An efficient snowmaking system assists early-season openings, even in a dry fall season.
