Winter is one of the best things about living in St. George. I love that we can drive 1 ½ hours north and be on the ski slopes of Brian Head on Cedar Mountain and then return home and play tennis in the evening, often in shorts and sweat shirt. For those of us who love to ski or have our “snow fix” without shoveling walks or driving in slush, St. George is perfect.
In January, many of the ski resorts in Utah offer incentives to get new skiiers on the slopes. Check out ski utah for deals throughout the state. This year Brian Head is offering three lessons, three days of rentals and three lift tickets for $199, BUT you have to be a beginner to take advantage of the deal.
To get to Brian Head from St. George, drive North on I-15 to exit 75 at Parowan. Once you exit, the eastiest way is to simply follow the signs that lead you through the streets of Parowan and up the mountain. Generally, the roads are plowed and Brian Head is pretty accessible; however, when there has been a recent snowfall I would call ahead for road conditions. There is also a shuttle service from both St. George and Cedar City if you prefer not to drive up the mountain.
If you are new to skiing/snowboarding, you are probably going to be renting some equipment, as well. I have only rented at Brian Head resort, but there are some sports stores in Cedar City who rent equipment. Plan to be early to get your rentals so that it doesn’t eat into your ski time.
Go to Brian Head and have fun. It is a great place to enjoy the white fluffy stuff and then return to the warm, sunny weather of St. George.
