Brian Head Hotels

The unspoiled ski resort of Brian Head offers excellent snow conditions, and a wide range of trails, without the big price tags of the major resorts. The bright volcanic rocks are covered by powdery snow in the winter months, but during the summer months you can use the ski trails for hiking or biking, with spectacular views of the nearby mountain ranges. Part of the appeal of the town is that it's fairly isolated, although there's still plenty to do, and charming Utah pioneer cities just a short drive away.
