Spring is in the air and Brian Head is ready to fire up the barbecue, tap the keg, and send it into the pond skim for what will be one of the last weekends of operation at the southern Utah ski area.

Cardboard races and a bikini slalom are scheduled in addition to pond skimming. The theme this year is “wig-out.” So grab your favorite faux headpiece (*we recommend this Mullet & toboggan in one) and get weird.

“Brian Head Resort brings along our own brand of crazy fun this coming weekend, April 6 & 7 with the (30th??) Annual Spring Carnival and Great White Weekend.”

The snow is sticking around later than we expected thanks to a series of late season blasts of winter weather that started in mid-February and continued through March. All lifts are scheduled to stay open through the festivities and spring hours are currently in effect (930am-430pm).
