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!!!

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.

Resort is pretty top notch, coming from the east coast (and SoCal which is horrible). Prices are good, but pack your own lunch. Season passes do look a bit steep in price unless you're young or senior (the pass to 25 years old actually cuts off at 24...) To break even on one you pretty much have to be up there every single weekend. It wouldn't hurt them to take some off the current $680 price. An even $600 or $550 would be much more value and probably see an increase in passes. They have runs for all levels, groomed and UN-groomed. Giant Steps high speed lift is great, the others seem pretty slow compared, but are not bad speed. Try and mostly avoid chair #4 though as it is long (2nd longest lift at 3900 ft long with only 600 ft vert gained) and slow plus filled with beginners and snowboarders who fail at lifts which constantly make it slow down/stop. Shame since that side of the mountain has some fun, chill runs and the snow usually stays a bit better (north east face gets the least of the sun). Chair #4 should be on par with the high speed quad they have, maybe not quite as fast, but some work needs done to get it going quicker. It is painfully slow. Powder days aren't really worth it unless you have the skill and equipment for Giant Steps. They don't groom the slopes at all before snow is forecast or the morning after it falls, and the Navajo side (less steep runs) just gets completely bogged down. Not much fun. Night skiing is not worth it, even for the $8 upgrade. The only one chair they run is acceptable, but the appalling lighting combined with the chopped up, bumpy slope (which only one of the potential nine marked slopes the lift can serve is lit) made me instantly feel unsafe once the sunlight started to dwindle. They need to upgrade the lighting to more slopes and groom the hills at the end of the day. Most of the natural terrain is amazing, but there are a few spots on both mountains that could be graded some. Even for myself who skis and can push along, it can get tiresome. I'd like to see some more little offshoots and long cuts through some of the trees too. Not to much, because this place is awesome for the trees, but just some nice and chill, long cuts (like Alpine Way, Maryland Parkway, Shivwits, Ninja, Gold Gulch) through the trees to add some variety. The man made terrain parks they have are great, but are somewhat intimidating for someone like myself with no park experience. I'd like to see some scattered small little features (the only thing I liked about Big Bear in CA) to hit and build confidence on. A 50 foot long 100 foot vert X games jump isn't exactly the best starter. Haven't been here for biking, but I see and hear mixed things. From what I see and hear, it looks like they do have some cool trails, but it doesn't compare to some of the other bike parks in the area (Snow Summit in CA and Canyons in Salt Lake). This place is already a gem for it's skiing (despite the few little things I brought up), it could really be a gem for bike park biking.

Brian Head is a great place to learn to ski whether you're a kid or adult. The employees are incredibly friendly, the show was great, and we skied right into non-existent lines all day. This beats Alta where you can wait in line for 15-20 minutes on busy days. It's a smaller resort, but has some entertaining runs. By far the best 'bang for the buck" for families. We'll be back.

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.

No lines. Polite staff. The skiing is ok, only two trails. Kind of boring. No night ski on Navajo, only Giant Steps.

I chose this place out of sheer convenience... the mountain looked like it had potential from all of the fine photographs I googled before hand... upon arriving to the mountain it did not disappoint... Great conditions, great service, good grooming, lots of lifts, tons of trails.... it was exactly what I was looking for in a resort without driving to Salt Lake City or Park City.... (the resorts up there cant be beat IMHO) The price point was nice.... less than 50 I beleive and I left the resort with a feeling that i would return.......
