Snow and Sun
One of the best things about spring in Southern Utah is the weather. The snow still sits heavy on the slopes, but lower elevations are getting warmer temperatures and blooming landscapes. That makes it completely possible to ski in the morning and hike through a field of wildflowers in the afternoon! If you’re a lover of the snow and the sun, a spring break trip to Brian Head will give you plenty of both. Just be sure to pack plenty of layers.
Explore Three National Parks
Taking a family trip to one of the country’s national parks is not uncommon. What is uncommon is being within a short drive of three of them! In Briah Head, that’s exactly what you get. You’re centrally located near Zion National Park, Cedar Breaks National Monument, and Bryce Canyon National Park, so it’s easy to take quick day trips to each of them. They each offer their own charm, giving you an easy glimpse into different ecosystems and terrains. Sure, you could take a long road trip across the country, but why not stay where you can see majestic scenery and avoid those long car-trip muscle aches?
If you’re day-tripping through the parks, be sure to choose a rental that’s close to the action. We have a variety of private cabins near the parks to make your trip even easier.
If you’ve never gone down a run at night, you’re missing out. Brian Head Resort has night skiing every spring, opening the slopes on Friday and Saturday nights from 4 to 9 p.m. for some nighttime thrill-seeking. Riders can ski or tube down the mountain without worrying about sun-glare off the snow – though you should watch out for hidden snow mounds. It’s a great way to keep your kids active and engaged during those evening hours when they might otherwise be plopped in front of the TV. But be sure to book early – night skiing ends on April 2nd.
