As of a few days ago, summer has officially begun. Here in Brian Head, Utah, it feels like we just barely got started with spring. The daytime temperatures are warming up beautifully, although I don’t think anybody would use the word “hot” to describe the situation (certainly not those of you arriving from Vegas and California!) Enough snow is melting off the mountain to cause a gushing river. The trees now have their leaves, and the birds have returned from their winter’s journey south. Bristlecone Park has been usable for a little less than 2 weeks now.
Many of the trails up on the mountain are still too snowy, wet and / or muddy for comfortable mountain biking at this point (maybe some of you who are really hardcore could handle it…but, do be aware the lifts aren’t open yet). I think we’re looking at early July before the lifts will open for mountain biking.
In the meanwhile, there’s still plenty to do up here on the mountain. For starters, try hiking or ATVing any time you’re in the area. Come and enjoy a picnic and a day of fishing or kayaking at Bristlecone Pond. There will also be limited opportunities to go ziplining on selected days. The resort will be open for ziplining the weekend of June 29th and 30th, and then again on July 4th – 7th. They’re also planning to open the climbing wall and bungee trampoline on these dates.
If you’ve been thinking of buying property in Brian Head, this is an outstanding time to schedule some showings to take a look at the condos and cabins that are currently available. There are significant numbers of properties that have recently come on the market for sale. You can take a peek at some of them via our real estate video tours.
This year, Brian Head’s annual 4th of July celebration is planned to happen starting Thursday, July 4th and continuing through Sunday, July 7th. There will be fireworks, live music and lots of fun. If you don’t already have plans for 4th of July this year, you should definitely consider coming up to Brian Head to celebrate. We hope to see you up on the mountain soon!
