    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.

    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.

    Personally, as a Vegas local, I’d rather pony up the extra cash and time to ride here than go to Lee canyon. The prices are …well, not great but the snow tends to be phenomenal and the runs are just sooooo much fun. Such a great ski resort. And the best is renting a cabin for the weekend, riding all day, eating drinking and hot tub, then repeat and go home!!!

    High altitude so there is a lot of wind, which causes 40% of the chairlifts to be shut down from time to time. The runs are all pretty short. There are a lot of flats.The main mountain has several chair lifts, which funnel 90% of the skiers into the same run near the Blackfoot chairlift. You can avoid this by taking a short-and-steep black, or a long flat green, but even so, the terrain is poorly laid out when there could be more options.Local restaurants are lacking, but that’s because there aren’t many people here. The food court has been remodeled and it’s still always crowded feeling with the slightest crowd. Food service frequently takes too long.The Utah snow is fantastic and Brian Head usually gets a lot of it. The pricing of ski-in, ski-out apartments is good.It’s not a great place for experts, not a great place for beginners. But it’s probably the best place in all of the Southwestern US that is south of Salt Lake City.I’ve skiied a dozen resorts in the US and a dozen more in Europe Brian Head is probably the “worst” one I’ve been too, but at the same time, since it’s local to me, I’ve had a season pass for the last 4 years and still make the most of it.

    Meh. Not the best mountain around, especially its customer service and lodge experience. They make you buy a full meal before purchasing an alcoholic drink, instead of just letting you buy an inexpensive meal like bread like most places. Octoberfest is a great time though.
