Imagine a ski resort where there are no lift lines, blue skis, good snow, affordable lift tickets and a relaxed atmosphere....that is Brian Head in southern Utah! We spent a weekend there exploring and enjoying the laid back resort.
Recently, the Ski Utah Yeti went social and asked you to identify your summer alias. The responses varied from commercial fisherman to hang glider pilot to wannabe rock star, however, mountain biker/cyclist won out as the most common summer alias. Good thing there's plenty of biking in Utah.
Utah's resorts have plenty of reason to brag in the summer. Hop on your mountain bike and you will see why.
East coaster, Edward Massey, set out to ski every corner of Utah this past January. Read his story as he skied over 367,000 vertical feet over Utah's 14 downhill and 4 nordic resorts.
Just in time for an epic President’s Weekend, and perfectly coinciding with the arrival of about a foot of the Greatest Snow on Earth, Brian Head Resort in Southern Utah this week opened two revamped terrain parks, Junkyard and Progressive. Between the two parks, there are many new beginner, intermediate and advanced features. There is likely something for every rider & freeskier in any family.
The snow has arrived in full force and we're looking at a pretty great start to the season and hopefully a good snow year thanks to La Nina. That is a discussion for another blog.
So, we've rented the skis and we're ready to head out. Now, I'm not as mobile as my other fellow bloggers. With my equipment, Emily's, Brennan's and 2 kids in tow....it takes us awhile. The key is to pick a day when everyone is rested and happy....otherwise, you'll be very crabby by the end of the day :)
I thought I'd take Emily first alone. Just to get her "ski legs". What's that? Well, for those of you who have skied before, it is the first day of the season to take it easy and sort of "remember" how to ski. After our very successful season last year with Emily, I thought, no biggie...she's ready to go straight up the lift. NOOOO! Last run of last year was down the tram at Snowbird. For those that haven't skiied much, it is a challenging run for us adults let alone the kids.
