Known for its beautiful scenery, Brian Head, Utah is a place of wonderland fun. Ski or snowboard at the Brian Head Resort’s two mountains, cross country ski into Cedar Breaks for a breathtaking view of the National Park, ride snowmobiles to Duck Creek and back or take a guided tour of the back country, sled on the many free hills or visit a tubing hill and enjoy the ride up and down; or just go to say you made snow angels. For the adventurous, there is also ice fishing. Among the most popular is Panguitch Lake, which holds ice fishing tournaments through February.
