Ski Levels

Widely known in the West as one of the top family-friendly resorts, Brian Head excels at catering to young and older skiers and riders who desire a safe learning environment as well as some challenging skiing.

Brian Head’s 650 skiable acres and 1,500 foot vertical rise present a fantastic mix of varied terrain, but the resort is small enough for groups of different abilities to manage without feeling intimidated.  The resort’s two mountain peaks are smartly divided to focus on different ability levels.  Experienced skiers and riders like the challenging terrain found at Brian Head Peak/Giant Steps Mountain, while the many greens on Navajo Mountain appeal to first timers. While Brian is famous for its noteworthy double black diamonds runs, many skiers appreciate that more than a third of Brian Head’s terrain has a beginner rating.

The resort offers some of the best learner terrain in the area and some of the most highly qualified and experienced instructors in the business. Private and group lessons for adults are available. Skiers will be pleased with the various ski and snowboard lesson options for adults and children at the resort. The Kids Camp offers learn to ski and snowboard lessons and packages for children ages 3-12, as well as day care for children six weeks up to age 12 years old. Two on-mountain ski and snowboard rental shops make outfitting easy, with one conveniently adjacent to the ski school.
