Skied Brian Head for three days (Jan 24, 25 & 26). Got in 75 runs. I had never skied Brian Head before so it was all new to me. Biggest surprise was that it wasn’t that big. I skied the whole mountain in one day. Basically the place is a good beginner/intermediate area. I skied many of their advanced runs and most should be classified as intermediate. Their expert runs are outside the ski area boundary – which made no sense to me. They even have warning sign (see below) that death is possible on those runs.
So will I come back? Yes. It is a nice area. It does need more high speed lifts.
Brian Head is made up of two peaks; Navajo Peak and Brian Head Peak. Lifts don’t reach to the top of Brain Head Peak, just to the top of Giant Steps mountain.
There are two lodges; An old lodge at the Giant Steps with little inside seating and a new lodge at Navajo.
