We have an exchange at Evergreen Codos. in Brian Head Utah 3/3/06 -3/10/06 and this is our first time visiting this area.

Are there discounts available for skiing/snowboarding?

Who would you suggest for snowmobile rentals and what would be a good 1/2 day trip?

Where do you reccomend grocery shopping?

We will be driving up from the south rim of the Grand Canyon in a SUV. What route would you take during this time of year that is scenic?

We have heard that the north rim of the Grand Canyon is not open during this time of the year. Is this correct?

Cedar City is the closest town with a variety of grocery stores as well as a Wal-Mart. Smith's, Albertson's and Lin's are all on Main Street. Most of southern Utah is "scenic." If you are coming up I-15 you can take a short side trip to Kolob Canyon which is actually part of Zion National Park but has it's own entrance. It is just off the interstate. Cedar Breaks National Monument is also on the way (or not far off the path) between Cedar City and Brian Head. You can also approach Brian Head from Parawan which is just north of Cedar City. You can take one route going and the other route coming. Both are pretty. And both are accessed from I-15. If you like Mexican food, try El Gallo in Cedar City. For soups, salads, sandwiches, pastries try The Pastry Pub near the university. (Center Street just west of Main Street) Center Street is also the one that heads east up the canyon toward Cedar Breaks, Brian Head, Duck Creek and on to Bryce.


If you see a whiny college student complaining about her parents not giving her a car, that would be my daughter. :D

I am relatively certain that the route up Cedar mountain is closed for the winter. When we go to Brian Head we always have to go up Parowan Canyon.

You might also want to think about making a detour over to Zion National Park for a day. If you are going up Highway 89 from Flagstaff, you can either take either Alt. 89 or stay on 89 which will take you over to Lake Powell which is pretty spactacular scenery also. As has been previously posted, all of southern Utah is pretty scenic.

Sorry, I forgot to add that Yes, the north rim of the Grand Canyon is closed during the winter months. I believe that it opens Memorial Day weekend.

What Cellular service has good coverage in this area?

Don't know. We have a national Cingular account. Check with your current provider and see what areas they cover.

We stayed at the Evergreen Condos a few years ago . . . had a good time. You'll be there in what is still likely prime ski/snowboard season, so the discounts may be limited, but I'd call Evergreen and ask. Seems to me they had discounted lift tickets through their office but I believe we set it up ahead of time, by phone. As I recall they had a van that took you to the lifts, so you might ask about that, too (it's not more than a mile or so, but it was great not to have to drive when it snowed!).

Unless there's something newly built, there's very little in the way of a grocery store -- just a 7-11 or mini-mart type of place -- so bringing groceries from Cedar City or such is important.
