Brian Head Resort is known first and foremost as a winter destination with 71 ski runs over 650 acres of terrain. This ski resort sits at Utah's highest base elevation, and an average of 360 inches of snow fall annually. Tubing and night skiing are also available.
Even when there's no snow on the ground, however, Brian Head Resort offers a draw for summer travelers. Its summer offerings aren't as well known as those available in the winter, so those traveling beyond the snowy months practically have the mountain to themselves. In the summer, the resort has mountain biking routes and a number of hiking trails that pass by wildflowers and wind through fields with sweeping views of the nearby mountains.
