$1 Million Investment in Skiing at Brian Head Resort for the 23/24 Winter Season

50 Days From Scheduled Opening Day

Join the countdown – as of Sep 22nd, 2023 we have less than 50 days until the scheduled opening day! Brian Head Resort is scheduled opening day is Friday, November 10th with over $1 million investment in capital improvement projects. This $1 million investment allows guests the freedom to ski and make more memories in the mountains.

New this season Brian Head Resort is introducing:

  • New gladed terrain in the Navajo increasing ridable tree terrain
  • Improved snowmaking to increase the snowpack quality to allow guests to ski more runs earlier in the season (weather permitting)
  • New safety features

Read on to learn how we are enhancing the skier experience this season with our $1 million investment.

New Terrain

Our team has been hard at work to create additional terrain to explore and natural park features to hit this season. The tree glading increases the amount of tree terrain for guests to experience. Some tree areas on the mountain are too thick for skiers to ride due to a surplus of deep snow and years of treefall. By removing the fallen debris and dead trees this creates more safe and ridable terrain to enjoy.

From beginner to advanced terrain, the trees under the Wildflower lift add new gladed riding for every ability level. The Shotgun trail, located near the Giant Steps Express also received new gladed terrain. This allows guests to easily explore tree skiing in-bounds safely.


In preparation for more early-season terrain, Brian Head Resort has expanded snowmaking coverage on the Lower Aught Trail. This means more early-season terrain open and available to ride (weather permitting). As long as Mother Nature maintains cold temperatures, the more snow we can make ahead of time will quicken the pace of trail openings earlier in the season. With over $500,000 investment in snowmaking upgrades, we are enhancing the skier experience for better early-season snow conditions and a more consistent base. With a new SnowCat PistenBully 400 Groomer added to our fleet of snow-groomers we can assure you some perfect corduroy runs this season.

General Safety

Safety is always on the forefront of our minds. This year we have all new pads for towers, signs, and pedestals. In addition, we invested in new vacuum spine boards. At the Navajo base we also fixed outside walkways to keep you safe on and off the slopes. These safety precautions will keep your mind calm as you hit the slopes at Brian Head Resort.
