Utah’s Brian Head resort cancels fireworks due to snow

January 1, 2019

ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) — Southern Utah’s Brian Head Resort canceled its New Year’s Eve fireworks show because of snowy weather.

Brian Head spokesman Mark Wilder told The Spectrum of St. George that the resort’s fireworks show and torchlight parade were canceled because of “blizzard” conditions. He says the snowy weather has been good for the ski resort but officials wanted to ensure the New Year’s celebrations were safe.

The area’s low temperature was -11 degrees Fahrenheit Monday and the Utah Department of Transportation reported icy conditions on State Road 143 leading to the resort.

Wilder says the resort plans to reschedule its fireworks show for President’s Day weekend.
