31 miles doesn't sound right. I am betting that mapquest is telling you to get off I-15 at Cedar City. That will lead you to route 148 which is closed in the winter. You have to over shoot and approach Brian Head from the North.
You need to stay on I-15 past Cedar City and take exit 75 at a town called Parowan. There will be plenty of signs for Brian Head. If the road is clear it will take you no more than 20 minutes after exiting 15. If there is snow on the road it could take you a while because it is a pretty steep climb on route 143.
Let me know if you want any more info.
