LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! Ski to your front door! Our unit at #2 Giant Steps is in one of the best locations in the complex. You're on the ground floor right across the hall from the stairwell to the under building parking garage and adjacent to the door outside to the slopes. It's an end unit with wonderful views up the slopes and over to the main lifts, not just other buildings in the complex.
Brian Head is one of the nicest ski resorts in Utah and an amazing ski area for families. We've owned our unit since 1985 and raised our son and daughter skiing these slopes with no worries. The superb location allows everyone to come and go as they please. The slopes are right outside the door, no driving to the lifts. Tired, hungry, thirsty? No need to visit the lodge. Just ski back and rest and refuel in the comfort of your own home.
CONDO AMENITIES: Our cozy condo has everything you need to feel right at home. There are two queen beds in the bedrooms and a queen sleep sofa in the living room. A wood burning fireplace (firewood provided free), 42' flat screen cable TV , a VCR and CD player in the great room creates a cozy gathering spot to share the events of the day. Each bedroom has a 32' wall mounted cable TV. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you'll need to cook up a tasty meal. Just stop in Cedar City to stock up on supplies. The clubhouse offers a pool table, ping pong, Foosball and a large Jacuzzi.
Brian Head resort offers great skiing and snowboarding in legendary Utah powder- an average of over 400 inches per year. The resort also offers a tubing park and areas for snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and sledding. Actually, the hill just behind the condo is a great one for sledding. We can't wait to get our little granddaughter up there in the snow.
Brian Head has 8 lifts and nearly 60 ski trails ranging from beginner to expert on two mountains.
MOUNTAIN ACTIVITIES YEAR ROUND: A new interconnect makes it possible to ski all the runs on both mountains without the inconvenience of riding the shuttle as was previously required.
In the summer, the cool 9600 foot altitude offers a wide range of outdoor activities. Long renowned as a mountain biking mecca, Brian Head has some of the best trails in the country and you can catch the main lift to the top with your bike and ride down from 11,000 feet enjoying breathtaking views on the way. There are also miles of hiking and ATV trails as well as several fishing lakes and streams in the immediate area. Cedar Breaks National Park is 10 minutes away and Zion and Bryce Canyon are also in driving distance. In Cedar City, a 30 minute drive down the mountain, you'll find shopping, restaurants, movie theaters, and the Shakespearean Festival at Dixie College (summer and fall).
Brian Head truly has something to offer everyone, winter, summer, spring or fall. Come see for yourself!
DJ, a former Naval Aviator and Stinky, a former Braniff stewardess first found Brianhead in 1983. We fell in love with the clear, fresh mountain air, the friendly folks and the incredible beauty of the place. We knew that these mountains would play an important part in our lives, so soon as we were able we bought our home-away-from home with our great friends, a flying Navy flight surgeon and his family who first introduced us to Brianhead. Our kids grew up skiing together. Although our skiing progressed from 'OMG, LOOKOUT!' to Banzai downhills to 'Let's cruise in for a beverage in front of the fire, we now enjoy sharing our mountain home with our extended families and a large circle of friends. We hope that you will enjoy your stay in Giant Steps as much as we have over the years.
Brian Head is an easy drive from Southern California and Las Vegas and a very family friendly mountain. Giant Steps was the only ski-in, ski-out property when we bought our unit and that was an important feature for us. The terrain is varied and offers something for all abilities. The ski school is excellent, our two kids learned to ski here.
Parowan 15 min. away for grocery shopping. Cedar City 30 min. has shopping, movies, restaurants. Zion National Park less than 2 hours away.
