Family members that don’t ski will find plenty of ways to stay occupied, whether it be snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, enjoying a relaxing spa treatment or racing down the lift-serviced tubing hill.  Brian Head Resort is conveniently located with-in a few hours’ drive of major cities in Utah, California, Nevada and Arizona, and was recognized by the Family Travel Forum as a "Top Family Getaway for Family Travelers”.
