About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! Ski to your front door! Our unit at #2 Giant Steps is in one of the best locations in the complex and on the mountain. It's 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 a wrap around L shaped porch and wonderful views up the slopes and over to the main lifts. So much nicer than just looking at other buildings in the complex from the living room windows.

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!

About Gail Rowley

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.

Gail Rowley purchased this condo in 1985

Why Gail Rowley chose Utah

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 son, Sean, and daughter, Heather, learned to ski here.

Great location and indoor parking

  • 4 of 5

this is a very cozy condo at a great location (ski in and out of Giant Step) with dedicated Internet connection, will stocked kitchen, and underground parking. It's my family's 1st time to BH and we loved it! kids were able to play snow outside while the adults watched from the warm living room. Each unit have a snow equipment storage closet in the hallway. I've already contacted Gail to reserve the condo for next winter.

Spring Skiing

  • 4 of 5

Pros: Great 1st floor location near the Giant Steps lift. Covered parking. Great hot tub and sauna in the club house. Ski passes included. Condo is roomy and warm.

Cons: Canoe bed in the master bedroom(major sagging of the mattress). The condo has insufficient lighting-very dark at night. One lamp in master bedroom had no switch. Not enough silver ware(forks and knives). Frying pans need to be update-all the coating has been scraped off. Other units with two bedrooms include 4 ski passes.

Awesome condo & owners!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very cozy & great for our (extended) family of 6. Gail was extremely accommodating especially since we were traveling with a 15 month old. The location of the end unit was terrific and really appreciated the underground parking since it snows quite a bit. I noticed the other condo's as we drove up & saw some of their cars buried in snow. I'm not too handy with a shovel in 40 degree weather :)

The full kitchen was great to cook at home and definitely helpful for baby bottles, food etc.

The clubhouse was fun to entertain the kids and the washer dryer was much appreciated since we were hoping from state to state.

The sleds came in handy for our little ones & the hill right outside the unit was perfect for them. My husband & I really enjoyed the freedom passes provided by Gail.

I would definitely recommend this unit again & our Ohana is already talking about visiting again in a year or two!

Great Location - Spacious Apartment - Most Wonderful Owners

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had the most terrific skiing vacations in this wonderful home. With a well equipped kitchen and everything else we needed - that's what it felt like to us! The fireplace kept us cozy and warm! What a great location right next to the Giant Steps lift - perfect for our sons to be completely independent boarding all day long! I'm not sure if Gail and Denny had anything to do with this but someone must have put in a good word for our perfect weather conditions! We'll be back as soon as possible! Mahalo!

Weekend Stay

  • 4 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed this cozy little hide-away! With 2 bedrooms and 1 3/4 baths, there was plenty of room for us to spread out. Flat screen televisions in both bedrooms and a BIG flat screen in the living room were such a treat for watching the Olympic opening ceremonies! The kitchen is fully equipped and easy to find things in. Our only problems were that the land line phone was not working, which was not actually a problem as everyone had their cell phones, and the condo was not as spotless as it could have been. No major grime, just some spotty bits that weren't as tidy as they might have been. We had a fabulous time! The condo is a bit older, which makes it super comfy and cozy! Free Firewood, a good sized game room with games for all, and the condo itself comes equipped with board games and jigsaw puzzles for those laze around nights by the fire. All in all, a very pleasant experience, and we will be returning OFTEN! Gail is the sweetest person you'll ever have contact with for a vacation rental too! Between her friendliness, the location and ease of the condo, and the location in beautiful Brian Head........... We'll be back as often as possible!
