Direct Link To This Post Topic: Brian Head, Utah
    Posted: Oct/04/2010 at 6:12pm
So I am trying to put together a trip this December, maybe right after Christmas.

I love in Socal and the people I will going with live in Vegas.  I was thinking of going to Brian Head but haven't heard too much about the place.  I was thinking there because it is relatively close to Vegas and looks like it will have a decent amount of snow. 

Can anybody tell me specifics since the website still has summer stuff up.  What are the ticket prices holiday/non-holiday?

I was checking out the trail map and it looks like there is a lot of variety.  Almost everybody will be a beginner except for me so that's a bit of a bust.

Any tips on where to stay, etc.?

It is closer to you than the other resorts here in Utah, but they are too far south to get any decent snow. It's another 4.5 hours to Snowbird, Solitude, Canyons, Brighton...etc. but depending on how many days you're going to ride, well worth the drive. Plus the fact that there will be more places to stay.

a buddy of mine rode there all of last year because he was at school in Southern Utah... He loved it! It is a lot smaller than the average Utah resort, but they do get quite a bit of snow as the season progresses (they currently have a 66" base and all 8 of their lifts are open). They usually have a fun park set up with a variety of features... and it's REALLY cheap to ride there.  Their website has all of the prices etc... it's not just summer stuff. Here's the lift ticket prices:  http://www.brianhead.com/2010_lift_tickets.html

As far as places to stay go... they have a cool Vegas Shred& Bed package and then a condo rental listing on their HOT DEALS page.

i just sold 4 tickets to that place. its a little far for me to go out there, but one day i'd really like to go. i hear its hardly crowded and you can pretty much expect tons of powder days.

those are some damn good prices!  I've been wanting to do a loop hitting Mt. Hood, Sun Valley, Pow Mow, Mammoth and Tahoe.  With prices that cheap, I'm going to have to remember this place.  I'm liking local hills a lot more recently.  just a better feel.  I loved Cypress Mountain, I'd probably hit it up before I hit Whistler again.

had a great time there and had plenty of snow. only downside is that on the harder side of the mtn there tended to be too many areas where it was just flat and easy to get stuck on.

If anyone here is considering a trip to Brian Head, please, please consider going to Eagle Point outside of Beaver instead. Eagle Point re-opened this year under new management and has amazing facilities, a great kid ski school and great riding in the Tushar Mountains. The entire backside of the mountain is steep, long blacks and provides easy access to what I hear is amazing backcountry terrain. I went there with the fam on Dec 30th and the mountain was virtually empty and full of Utah powder. Their terrain park is up, complete with a quarter pipe.

The mountain does have some weird things (lifts in wrong places, needing a snowcat to get you to some of the runs - but for free) but for a new resort its pretty cool.

Brian Head's lifts close if there is a 2mph breeze. Go try Eagle Point instead.

On a complete tangent...this is the most ironic resort I've ever heard of.  My husband's name is Brian and his friend calls him "Head" as a nickname....damn, nearly spooky!

Cat ski at eagle point is free? that's pretty sweet. i remember at whislter they wre trying to make it another option instead of heli skiing. this would be a good way to cross that off my list.

Eagle Point is worth the trek. They don't really have cat skiing per se; their lifts are in weird places so in order to get to five or six runs on the far side of the mountain they use a cat. But, because you have to take a cat to these runs they're hardly used (as are most of the runs at Eagle Point).
The Tushar Mountains are beautiful. Ride them.

This was the most current BH thread i could find so...

I have 3 Mid-week (Mon-Thu) lift ticket vouchers for whoever wants them. Just PM your contact info and I'll send them out to you.

On another note, i have 2 tickets to the LA Boat Show this weekend 17-20 at the LA Convention Center. Cant make it this year so if anyone is interested in planning out their summer toy purchases then this would be the show. Lots of good stuff and "celebrity" appearances at these shows.

thanks Nautika.
I'll try that. St George is the closest. It's like 1-2 hours away if i remember correctly. It's pretty amazing nobody wants free tix.

BH keeps getting dumped on so their season will probably get extended. I might use them myself if that's the case. I just dont like to go alone that far and finding peeps to drive that far when you can get to Mammoth in the same amount of time is tough.

EDIT: Tix are spoken for.
