We recommend that you take advantage of the wonderful ski and snowboard instruction available at Brian Head especially the kids camp at the Navajo Resort. It is inexpensive and fun. The resort offers both group and private snowboard or skiing instructions. They also offer lift ticket and lesson packages. Go to Brian Head.com to make reservations ahead of time especially during the holidays. Please be aware there are 2 ski resorts connected by a bridge. Giant steps resort has the more advanced skiing. There are also 2 inner tube parks.
Unless you are purchasing a package, we prefer Georg's for equipment rental. They have it all including skis, snowboards, snowshoes, cross country equipment and winter clothing. Ask for the Harpster discount.
The resort offers biking, hiking, 4 wheeling and fishing tours. On summer weekends in town there are several activities for the kids including alpine slide, zip line, climbing wall and bungee trampoline to name a few. There is also the new lake including a playground, basketball court, pickle ball court, picnic benches and fire pits. A short distance away is Cedar Breaks, Navajo Lake, Panguitch Lake and Bryce Canyon. We also enjoy the Shakespeare Festival in Cedar City in the Summer and Fall. They offer a variety of professional plays and even have baby sitting available. Go to Bard.org for information.
We recommend that you drink LOTS of water on the way up. Sports drinks offering electrolytes are even better. The elevation of our home is 9,800 ft. The base at Giant Steps is 10,000 ft.
Food services are limited at Brian Head. Cedar City has a Smiths, Walmart and Lins for groceries. Parowan has a smaller store called Food Town. Please note it closes at 9:00 pm. There are also two small markets in Brian Head. They are a little pricey but great for forgotten items.
Most importantly…. Relax, enjoy, have fun and make yourself at home.........

About Gwen Harpster
We both love to ski, snowshoe, atv and hike so Brian Head was the perfect choice for us. Utah is a great escape from the crowds in CA. Living at the beach in California has spoiled us with cool summer weather. We also find cool temperatures in Brian Head in the summer. It's always a debate whether we like summer or winter better in Brian Head. Summer is great but it's hard to beat fresh powder and a sunny day with friends and family. We currently have 6 grandkids ages 0-6 who love coming up the mountain to ski, tube, swim and of course play with Grandpa and Grandma.
Gwen Harpster purchased this Cabin in 2001
Why Gwen Harpster chose Trails at Navajo
We have been coming to Brian Head for more than 25 years. It is such a great, affordable family place in summer as well as winter. Since we enjoyed it so much, we decided to buy our own home. We instantly loved this house as soon as we walked in the front door. Just like our ad says, It is bright, sunny and spacious. We really appreciate the views from every window. Also, the layout was perfect for our family and friends. Plenty of room to be together or to spread out.
What makes this Cabin unique
We love the fact that our home is in a paved neighborhood with city water and sewage. It can get really muddy reaching some of the properties in Brian Head.

This cabin was a perfect place to our three families! So fun and great location!
Thank you for your review. So happy that you enjoyed the house and were able to book a last minute ski vacation with family and friends. We welcome you back anytime.
all needs met and wonderful time!
The home met all of our needs for our group of 6 adults and 6 young kids. You can tell Gwen takes very good care of her home and strives to make sure her guests are comfortable.
Thank you for your kind review. I'm so pleased that the house met your needs and you had a great time. Please visit us again.
Large, fully stalked home nestled in the trees
My group stayed in this lovely home over President’s weekend. Gwen was extremely friendly and informative before and during our stay. She must have performed quite a snow dance so that we could have lots of snow for our visit! Thanks Gwen!
There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for our group of 3 families (6 adults and 7 kids). Everything was fully stocked and in great working order. The kitchen has any gadget you might need, and lots of spices/condiments. It’s also large enough to have several people helping out. The dining table sat our whole party together, which was really great.
The upstairs sitting room was a great room to escape the kids, but not as comfortable as the downstairs tv room with plush couches and cozy beanbags! The smart tv with surround sound was put to good use!
At first I thought the beds were ultra-firm but they were extremely comfortable. One person in our group was allergic to the down comforter, but there was an abundance of blankets to choose from so she just switched it out.
The showers worked great- good size, good pressure, even temperature, plenty of hot water and plenty of towels. The washer and dryer both worked perfectly.
The home is located just off lift 4. It’s a little tricky to find when trying to ski in, and requires a bit of a trek. We spent several hours playing in the snow just outside the home. There’s lots of room for sledding and snowball fights.
It snowed the day we left and Jeff came out to shovel the driveway and help us get out.
We had a wonderful time in this gorgeous home and would definitely stay again!
Thank you for being such great guests and for taking the time to submit such a well thought out and thorough review. It really helps us know what you liked and I am sure it is helpful for those wanting to stay in the future. We are pleased that the house worked out well for your group. I definitely think you had some of the best snow of the season. It would be a pleasure to have you back so please visit us anytime.
annual family snow trip
The cabin was perfect, plenty of room for 11 adults and 3 children. Great table for late night games. Good location even though we didn't ski. It is very clean and with well stocked kitchen utensils and extra blankets. One of the best I have rented. Thanks so much for letting us stay in your cabin.
Thank you for your review. We are so glad that the cabin worked perfectly for your family reunion. You were such a great group that we would welcome back anytime.
The perfect escape!
We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful Brian head property. The cabin was clean, and comfortable with everything we needed for a relaxing escape to the mountains. We loved all the nearby attractions. If you like the outdoors, Brian head is the vacation for you! Don't miss out on the amazing views from Brian Head Peak. Truly breathtaking! Gwen was wonderful to work with and was happy to answer any questions we had prior to our arrival. We loved our stay and look forward to another trip soon! Maybe next time in the winter for some snow skiing! Thank you Gwen & family for sharing your beautiful home with us.
Thank you for the kind review and for being such wonderful guests. We would love to have you back in the winter to enjoy skiing on some of the best powder on earth. It is very satisfying to know that the cabin worked out great for your group and you enjoyed Brian Head and all it has to offer. Couldn't agree with you more, it's a beautiful place to enjoy all the outdoor activities or simply to relax. In addition, we find it to be the perfect place to escape the summer heat.
Perfect two family home
Great family home! Well laid out with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. Clean and tidy upon arrival. Unfortunately a difficult ski in and ski out even for our intermediate level skiers. Quick 3 minute drive though down to lodge.
So glad you enjoyed our home. I'm wondering if the snow conditions made it more difficult for your group to ski in/out. The trails and runs involved are all rated easy. We encourage our guests to please let us know if the trail has not been groomed especially after a large snowfall or they are having any problems following the trail. We provide details in our house booklet but would also be more than happy to help you. We are just a phone call away.
Other Activities: kayaking, mountain biking, atvs, horses etc.
