Property description

Aloha Bear is a new, beautifully made condo in a very exclusive property with many upgrades only 2 minutes from the lifts. You enter the main floor of the condo from your private 2 car garage on the same level as the main floor. No hauling ski equipment, luggage or groceries up & down common stairs or in the snow. Downstairs is a second bedroom and bath, great for the kids or another couple.

We went out of way to make our little retreat comfortable. It is called Aloha Bear for Hawaiian hospitality and bears which personify strength and go with the flow of the seasons. We have a full kitchen with many amenities including an espresso maker & Hawaiian coffee. Aloha Bear also has a rice cooker & chop sticks for our fellow rice eaters.

The extras: The bedrooms have great beds and linens to make your sleeping a pleasure. The living room has 3 recliners, a gas fire place and a 42 inch LCD HD TV and cool unique handmade furniture so you can relax after a fun day on the slopes in the winter or day trips to the monuments & festivals in the summer. The master bedroom has a beautiful Southwest king size bedroom set with a CD IPod docking station and a jetted tub in the bathroom. The downstairs bedroom has a full and twin bunk bed with a 32 inch LCD HD TV and its own full bathroom. Full sized front loading washer and dryer add to your convenience.

Lots of plates, glasses, wine glasses, & cooking utensils including a good selection of pots and pans, baking pans for muffins, cakes etc. A nice, fairly quiet dishwasher. Water and ice through the door.

Skiing & sight seeing: Coming from Hawaii, we love being tourists on the mainland. We like the Southwest history, native people culture and fabulous geology. Having enjoyed skiing many places, we fell for Brian Head because the snow was great whenever we went there (including the marginal times), skiing was great for families; lots of choices for those who don’t ski all that often as well some challenging stuff for those adventurous types, a mellow vibe, friendly people, the boarders respectful, the lift tickets are affordable and to top it off it is in Utah's 'color country' and only 3 hours from Las Vegas.

What we didn't realize was how great it was in the summer. Cedar Breaks Monument is only about 5 minutes away by car in summer. It is a spectacular photographers dream with ranger lead snow shoe walks along the rim in June (snow dependent). Other monuments within day trip range are Zion, Kolab Canyons, & Parowan Gap. The Shakespeare Festival in Cedar City is a real treat in an intimate outdoor theater.

Summer sports: Cedar City is becoming known for its cultural appreciation of the performing arts in theater and music with lots of fun festivals. On the Solstice, the Parowan Gap, only a half hour away, celebrates one of the only known natural solstice and celestial landmarks, long recognized by native peoples traveling though this area who left hundreds of fantastic petroglyphs. Brian Head becomes a mountain bike, hike, & ATV destination in the summer with really nice lakes for fishing close by.

A stay at Aloha Bear, is a bit of an upgrade from the usual ski condos. You will feel pampered and relaxed. The kids can have their own space downstairs or you can enjoy quality family time all together in the comfy living room. In the winter, it is so easy to get from the living room to the lifts and back again. In the summer, it is such a cool comfortable retreat from sight seeing in the desert or surrounding mountains. We have cable and private WiFi, no phone though. Note: This is not a condo to cram a bunch of people into.

Zion and Kolob Canyons are about 1 hour away. Bryce is about 1.25 hours. The Parowan Petroglyphs are about 20 minutes away.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: We live on Kauai in paradise so we have to have something special to go to, hence Aloha Bear. I rent our family's properties as vacation rentals in Hanalei. We like the city Vegas rush for a night or so after flying from rural Kauai, then enough of that and back to nature in the mountains.

Why Brian Head:
We have skied all over the place. We really like the laid back vibe at Brian Head. The property was new, cool looking & in a great location close to both lifts, not far off the main road so good for driving out in the snow but not on the main road so nice and quiet. WE LOVE the private two car garage on the same level as the main floor.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The private two car garage on the same level as the main floor is very unique compared to any other ski condos in Brian Head. No schlepping equipment!
