Utah’s reputation as the home of some of the world’s greatest downhill skiing began to build in the 1930’s. That reputation was officially “cast in stone” when in 1995, the International Olympic Committee selected Salt Lake City as the site for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. And why not, since northern Utah, with an impressive cluster of amazing ski resorts, including Alta, Brighton, Snow Bird, Deer Valley, and Sundance have welcomed skiers from all over the world for decades.
While southern Utah is better known for spectacular national parks and desert-style outdoor recreation such as hiking, biking, rock climbing and camping, a quirk of Mother Nature and geography has placed Brian Head, another of the state’s great ski resorts, just 90 minutes from St. George. As a result, more and more people prove the claim that its possible to get in a comfortable morning round of golf in St. George and a great afternoon of skiing at Brian Head – all on the same winter day.
Twelve miles up the canyon from Parowan on Utah Hwy. 143 (off the I-15 freeway), Brian Head is not only the most southern of Utah’s ski resorts, it also has the designation as the highest-altitude resort in the state, with elevations ranging from 9,600 to 11,307 feet above sea level. At that elevation, great snow conditions can be guaranteed throughout most of the winter.
Skiing at Brian Head is one more exciting experience to enjoy on your winter vacation in St. George.
