About Shelley Hancock
We are the Hancocks and we own two Giant Steps units as a family. We are originally from Ogden, UT. Brent and Diane currently split time between Mesquite, NV and Ogden, UT. Troy and Shelley and all their kids live in Gilbert, AZ. Curt and Marilyn and their kids live in Ogden, UT.
Shelley Hancock purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Shelley Hancock chose Brian Head
We wanted to find a central meeting place where we could come together as a family. After having our first full family vacation in Brian Head 3 years ago, we loved it so much that we came back up a month later to find a place we could own. During our first visit, we stayed further up the mountain in a beautiful home, but wanted to have something closer to the ski hill. We love our ski in ski out condos!! For us, Brian Head is about coming together as a family and having fun in what we consider to be some of the most beautiful country anywhere.
What makes this Condo unique
When we bought our units, they were both old and outdated, but we knew that we could make them our own. We tore everything out, all the way down to the studs. We believe that we are able to offer finest properties in Giant Steps for an amazing rate. We believe you will agree.

Great family trip in a perfect rental
This is a great condo. It had everything we needed. The location is great. Since it is on the first floor it is very easy to access while wearing ski equipment. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone interested in a Brian Head vacation.
Perfect location for ski in and ski out
The property is on the first floor of the first Giant Steps building. This was a perfect location for skiing at Brian Head. Heading back to the condo for lunch or to switch clothing was quick and easy. The condo was clean, well-stocked with all needed items (towels, kitchen utensils, etc.) and plenty big for our family of five. The bathrooms have heaters in them which was a huge hit after a cold day on the ski hill. Owners were responsive from my first communication and accommodated several requests. The internet was spotty but I think that is more related to Brian Head, not the Condo. We were staying with several families and most of the condos at Giant Steps internet was not working. The infrastructure at Brian Head seems to be weak. I have stayed in Brian Head for many years and internet is always hit or miss. We found our new favorite spot to stay at Brian Head and we are already looking forward to next year.
This place feels like home
We stayed here for the second time in two years last weekend because it is a clean and thoughtfully stocked vacation rental. The appliances, dish ware, pots, pans and utensils are higher quality which makes a big difference when it comes to morning coffee, breakfast, lunch and dinner preparation. The well-appointed unit is always clean and tidy. It's also free of a lot of 'cabin' clutter that is typical of a lot of vacation rentals.
The owners are totally professional and provide directions that are easy to follow.
Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Wonderful weekend getaway
We really enjoyed our stay here. Very nice updates throughout and well stocked kitchen. Loved the fireplace and the fact they provided wood for you. We had plenty of bedding and blankets. Only 2 issues-1 a grill was listed as on site so we planned a grilling meal only to discover there was no grill, just may want to take that off the list of amenities or get a grill. And 2- while Wi-Fi isn't the most important thing in the world and I enjoyed not having much access to the internet, it was advertised as having its one wifi but it was pretty spotty. Again, I didn't mind so much but it was advertised. We'd definitely stay here again, in fact, my teenager asked if we could go there every fall break. 😃
We are sorry for any confusion related to accessing the grill. We thought we had properly described access to and use of the grill in the "Welcome Letter" we send prior to arrival detailing complex amenities as well as other helpful information. We will make it more clear that there is a grill outside of the clubhouse that is accessible to all guests. Our unit is located right down the hall from the club house.
This unit is equipped with it's own dedicated modem and wireless router provided by Century Link (It is sitting on the kitchen counter). It has the highest data transmission rate available from Century Link in the area which is rated at 7 mb/s. The internet is definitely not overwhelmingly fast, but can support streaming movies (on a limited number of devices at one time) as well as provide adequate access to most internet activities. We do find that the modem/router has to be reset occasionally due to disruptions from Century Link in the area. This is easily done by unplugging and plugging the power supply back into the modem. We have previously had Century Link change the modem/router out due to our own concerns and were informed at the time that there are limitations on their side to support data requirements in the area. I believe it is related to not having high speed cables in the area. We have found these issues to only be slightly inconvenient on occasion. Sorry that this was so disruptive to your stay in this beautiful mountain location.
Cozy and luxury, but Internet is bad
It is cozy for a family vacation. Lots of good quality towels, bed sheets, blankets, hand soaps, body soaps, kitchenware, paper towels. The beds are soft.
There's nothing to complain, but the Internet doesn't work at most of the time. And it seems it's been months(?) vacancy, furniture covered by dust.
So sorry about the dust. Lesson Learned on our end. We have asked our cleaning group to always review and spot clean the property prior to the arrival of any guests.
