No leftovers for Brian Head: New lifts to be served up day after Thanksgiving, Nov 26

Posted By: Zeke Piestrup on November 23, 2010 8:14 am

Day after Thanksgiving will not be a day of leftovers for Brian Head Resort.  On Friday, the Utah ski resort will open lifts 2, 4, 5 and 6.  None of those lifts are currently being served.  Right now, Brian Head Resort is offering up a tasty serving of lift 3, and lift 3 will continue to feed the patrons.

Brian Head currently has a 30 inch base and snow is forecast for tonight.

With the limited opening and discounted lift ticket prices: $25 for adults and $20 for children 12-and-under.  From 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. chairlift three, Black Foot, will serve three runs and a terrain park with 11 features, rails and boxes. Brian Head will open additional chairlifts and terrain as conditions permit, and the discount prices will remain in effect until then.

About Brian Head Resort: at 9,600-11,307 feet above sea level, it is the highest ski resort base elevation in Utah. It averages nearly 400 inches yearly of the “Greatest Snow on Earth,” has three terrain parks, eight lifts, 65 ski trails and 650 acres of ski terrain for downhill skiing, snow tubing and snowboarding from mid-November through mid-April. There are also assorted options for après ski dining and drinking, entertainment and ecotourism, as well as cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and much more. Brian Head’s very family friendly atmosphere includes an uncrowded setting with no lift-lines, an award-winning, all-inclusive children’s program for ages 3-12 at Navajo Lodge Learning Center, an entire mountain and facility dedicated to kids and newcomers to winter sports.  There is also a state licensed day care facility. Brian Head’s location is perfect for combining a skiing or snowboarding trip with a visit to Las Vegas.  Likewise, Brian Head is likely closer to more national parks than any other ski resort town in North America; Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef, The Grand Canyon, and Great Basin are all within easy reach. Cedar Breaks National Monument is two miles from Brian Head.
