The Ultimate Southern Utah Spring Road Trip

It’s that time of year to plan the ultimate southern Utah spring road trip!

The spring mountain air is here and summer is just around the corner. This is a great time to start thinking about the perfect summer trip to your local National Parks! Located in our very own backyard, Brian Head is surrounded by National Parks and even a National Monument just 4 minutes away.

We’re located less than 2 hours from Zion, Bryce National Park and many more nearby destinations. We’re a perfect place to stop along the way to experience skiing today and the desert tomorrow – all in the same weekend!

Remember, Brian Head Resort has the highest base elevation in Utah at 9,600′ allowing us to maintain snowpack while the rest of the south transitions quickly to warmer weather.
