With an annual snowfall of 360 inches and Utah’s highest base elevation, it’s no wonder that Brian Head Resort boasts a claim of having “the best snow on earth.” Before hitting that fresh snow, though, it’s important to consider the equipment you’ll use when you’re there. While purchasing your own ski or snowboard gear has its perks, renting can be a huge budget saver. This is especially true if you’re traveling by plane, as you’ll save a lot on baggage fees by choosing rentals. There’s a variety of rental options both on and off the mountain at Brian Head, and we’ve got you covered with the best places to score Brian Head ski rentals.

Ski Packages for Less

Often ski resorts rent out equipment at inflated “window” rates, and Brian Head is no exception. For that reason, it’s important to browse rental gear as early and often as possible. The earlier you browse, the better prices and discounts will be. But remember, you also have us. For the most current deals, you should always our website. We guarantee to show you the best places and prices for Brian Head ski rentals.

You can also save money on Brian Head ski rentals by checking out off-site rental shops. At Brian Head, an Adult Ski or Snowboard Package costs $35 for a full day. For skiing only, Performance Packages are also available and are priced at $45. As a comparison, Georg’s Ski Shop (just one mile away) offers a Shaped Ski Package for $29, and a Snowboard Package for $33. Georg’s also has Performance Packages for nearly 15% off of Brian Head’s prices.

Things to Keep in Mind

It may be a loss of convenience to visit an off-site shop for rentals, but it isn’t a loss of quality or service. Additionally, most local ski rental shops offer brand selections that are similar to what you’d find at a resort. Remember that checking with us online will help you not only narrow down your choices, but also score the best deals and pricing.

Another tip regarding Brian Head ski rentals: purchase what you need. For example, buying merino or synthetic wool socks can really maximize comfort and warmth while on the mountain. These socks are also moisture-wicking, so they’ll dry much faster than cotton socks. It’s also a good idea to consider purchasing a helmet and good goggles. A helmet purchase alone will save you around 7$/day in rental fees. Even though not everyone chooses to wear helmets, it’s important to consider your personal safety above all else when participating in any winter sport. Once you’ve got the gear covered, you can focus on the best part the trip: hitting the slopes.
