Ski In/Ski Out
Timber Lodge at Brian Head sits in the resort developed neighborhood of "The Trails at Navajo". This development was designed to offer ski in and ski out access to most of the homes. A few of the homes, like the Lodge, actually sit on access runs that drop right onto the runs and lifts of Navajo Mountain. The Trails at Navajo have a standing contract with the resort to groom the access trails in the neighborhood with every new six inch snow*. A quick look at the pictures page and you'll find the grooming machines running right up to the Lodge.
Interconnect: For the 2007/8 ski season, the resort completed it interconnect project. This project added two new lifts, many runs and connected Navajo Mountain with the Giant Steps runs. You can now ski both mountains from the Lodge without the need for cars or shuttle buses.
Ski In: There are two approaches to the Lodge via the Navajo Ski Run (Lift # 4). The key feature of the Navajo Run is a road overpass about one half the way down the run.
Approach 1: Just before this overpass, you can turn left off the run into the Trails at Navajo development. This approach is only recommended when the access runs through the development are groomed due to the flatness of the approach. Once off the run and into the neighborhood, proceed down the hill (approximately 100 yards) and make the first right into a grove of trees. This will lead you to a road with a large underground pass-thru. Go through the tube and as you exit, you'll see the Lodge on your left. Judge your speed just right and you can ski right up to the deck outside our ski room. See our picture story of both approaches on the picture page.
Approach 2: Instead of turning off the Navajo Ski Run before the road over-pass, go under the over-pass and immediately look to your left. There you will see a chute (about 50 yards long) that will deliver you straight to the Lodge. This approach is occasionally groomed and usually compacted by other skiers and boarders making it a fun and preferred approach. As you come out of the chute, you can look to your left up the groomed slope and see the underground tube from the first approach.
* Access grooming starts when the resort determines there is a significant base. This may be early November or as late as January. The distance to the lift is about 150 yards and without grooming can be skied (not recommended for beginners) or walked.
