Visiting St. George & Southern Utah

Southern Utah winter is just about over. The scenic red rock country surrounding Saint George is Utah’s lowest elevation. At the northeastern edge of the Mojave Desert, Utah’s Dixie feels the first warmth of spring sunshine. However, a short drive away the red rocks blend into the alpine setting of Dixie National Forest. Get your last runs in at Brian Head Resort 30 miles east of Cedar City and 60 miles west of the amazing formations of Bryce Canyon National Park. Travelers down historic Highway 89 will find affordable golf on sunny days in Mount Carmel junction – A good idea any day is a stop at Mount Carmel's Thunderbird Lodge & Restaurant for the “Ho-Made Pie."

Brian Head Resort has announced an extended season to mid-April – bonus for Utah spring skiers. This time of year you can stay at a Best Western hotel in Cedar City or Saint George and enjoy skiing down the slopes and a round of golf in the same day. Brian Head is referred to as one of southern Utah’s best kept secrets, offering great terrain and snow at affordable prices – a nice option for families on a budget.

For a fun day on the slopes, don’t miss Brian Head’s 2012 Spring Fair. Saturday March 31 brings fun for everyone to Dixie National Forest. Catch this year’s Pond Skimming as skiers and snowboarders try to make it across the pond without getting wet. Even enter a dummy into the Dummy Jump Contest – see how high and far they fly, but it’s how they splat that’s best. New for 2012 – the Around the Mountain Relay, get your teammates lined up for fun at Brian Head’s Spring Fair.

Zion National Park is a spectacular destination in spring. Open year-round, however spring means cool weather and small crowds. Zion, one of Utah’s most popular outdoor destinations, offers spectacular hiking through spectacular sandstone formations and scenery. Springdale, the gateway to Zion is an ideal spot to spend some time – enjoy quaint shops and eateries or organize a jeep tour bike ride or even a sky diving experience.

Visitors to Saint George are happy to find the Saturday Market at Tuacahn Amphiteatre 2012 schedule in full operation for the season beginning in March. Alternating with special Saturday events, check the Tuachan calendar for specific dates. BE sure to catch your favorite events including April’s Youth Bike Rodeo and the NTL Mustang Auto Show. May brings the Desert Rodders Car Show the 12 and the Polynesian Festival on the 26. It is the season to enjoy Southern Utah.
