Brian Head Resort will host its first annual Military Appreciation Day on July 23, 201. All active, guard and reserve military members and their families, along with all retired military members (with id), will receive half price chairlift tickets and free hotdogs and hamburgers. These tickets, normally $24, will provide access to all of Brian Head’s summer on-mountain activities, including mountain biking, hiking, disc golf and the new self-guided "Brian Head Family Adventure,” earth-science and natural-history focused activities ranging from orienteering to learning about petroglyphs.
Activities are offered from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (weather conditions permitting) and can be accessed via Brian Head’s The mountain bike park at Brian Head, with its combined chairlift and shuttle service, gives access to over 200 miles of exhilarating mountain bike trails offering perhaps America’s most diverse scenery. The trails range from easy to advanced and there is also a terrain park. At the top of the chairlift, mountain bikers have access to the Sydney Peaks Trail, the right and left forks of the Bunker Creek Trail, and the Dark Hollow Trail. Riders can chose trails based on their skill level, how much time they have and the type of scenery they want to take in, including views all the way to Arizona and Nevada, sweeping redrock vistas, mountain ranges, lava flows and wildflowers, as well as bald eagles, peregrines, and prairie falcons.
Brian Head Resort’s Mountain Bike Park and Activity Center are located at 329 South Highway 143, Brian Head, UT 84719 in southern Utah, only 3 hours northeast of Las Vegas. For more information, visit www.brianhead.com.
