This year we got to visit a town in Iron County, Utah called Brian Head. It has an average of 360 inches of snow every year. It also offers some of the best snowboarding and skiing in Southern Utah. And it's about a 3 hour drive from Las Vegas, Nevada. So if you're looking for a quick weekend snow getaway, Brian Head is the place to go.
The cabin we stayed at had a spacious backyard and had plenty of space for the kids to go out and play in the snow! We had fresh snow every single day while we were there. Watching and seeing the snow cover every surface was just beautiful. Waking up to a snow covered balcony with the sun peeking through the pine trees was simply enchanting! Sledding and snow ball fights were the kids favorite activities and they would probably do it all day if they could. Hot cocoas and s'mores never tasted better! Relaxing in the couch, watching a movie in front of the fireplace while the snow falls in slow motion outside was such a wonderful sight to see and experience. A time to actually enjoy the snow right in the comfort of your very own backyard. Just enough to appreciate it and not be burden by it haha.
So next time you want to plan a snow trip, consider going to Brian Head, Utah and check it out for yourself.
