Family Ski Weekend: Brian Head Resort

By Nicole:

Those bright sunny skies were our warm welcome to Brian Head Resort this last weekend. Can you even believe that blue bird day? I had never taking a ski trip to southern Utah, so when Ski Utah sent over the invite we were there in a heartbeat.

Sunny and Dash are on their second year of Skiing. We have fallen in love with this family sport and are committed to sticking to it. I couldn’t be a happier mommy than when I see my kids succeed at something, and on top of that, love it as much as I do. I gave them what pointers I could last year, but they were in need of some formal training in order to truly grow in their abilities. Brian Head Resort offers a kids camp for each individual age group/experience level. Dash and Sunny set off for a full day of camp! By the end they were best buddies with their instructors, and I couldn’t believe the progress they had made in just one day. Plus, I had a full day kid-free to ski plus a few hours of instruction of my own.

The people of Brian Head are unlike any other. I felt like family the entire stay. Every last instructor, waitress, and friend that I met was warm and kind and made us ( the circus-like family) feel more than welcome. We loved the people almost as much as we loved the mountains. The small town feel of the resort was the perfect touch.

Cedar Breaks Lodge hosted us and kept us cozy with our two fire places. It was within walking distance to the lodge where they met for kids camp. Staying so near to the lodge and two of the lifts was ideal for breaks, naps, or a fast little soak in the hot tub to warm up before a night ski. We will absolutely stay with Cedar Breaks on our next trip down, hopefully in just a few weeks!

We love you Brian Head Resort, and we cant wait to come back for more!
