In addition, there is hikeable terrain that accesses a maximum vertical descent of 1,548 feet. If freestyle riding is your bag, check out one of their three terrain parks.
It is known for its friendly staff (along with the locals) and for well-groomed intermediate family oriented runs. But, out of bounds, there are plenty of heart pounding steeps and narrow chutes to challenge all riders. Hike the Brian Head peak or the OB backside.
For apres ski, try Pinnacle Breaks Club.
