In winter, that extra height helps makes this one of the snowiest place in the U.S.A. 30 feet of sublime powder snow annually, anyone? In the summer months, as the clouds clear, you'll find the temperatures are knocked back to a pleasant 60-70°F, thanks to the cooling mountain breezes.

Brian Head—the ultimate Utah wilds

The resort sits in the shadow of the 11,000-foot Brian Head Peak, and The Markagunt Plateau it sits on ranges from 9,000-10,000 feet around the resort. All around is a vista of pine-clad ridges, brightly colored rock spires, and tumbling glassy streams. That's if the whole lot hasn't been plastered by the winter's snows.

Elk, mountain lion, and black bear may be the first prize, but pikas, marmots, or badgers are no small consolation.
