Brighton Ski Resort is tucked at the far end of Big Cottonwood Canyon, just over the ridgeline from Alta. The great snow factory we call the Great Salt Lake produces lake-effect storms that nuke on the local resorts. Brighton benefits to the tune of over 500-inches per year–that’s over 41 feet!
Brighton is known for its terrain parks and strong snowboard crowd. But, for a resort that is celebrating 70 years in business, they haven’t let anything go to their heads. The vibe is pretty laid back and the prices–well, they haven’t looked around and done the “me too” price increases. Brighton could charge more than their $53 full-day lift ticket price, but they don’t and that’s good for everyone.
With 4 of 5 lifts of the high-speed variety and 4 terrain parks (check out My-Oh-My’s top-to-bottom terrain park run), Brighton has 1050 acres of trees, groomers, terrain parks and steeps suitable for the entire family. To top it off, they offer the most night skiing in Utah (200 acres), to keep your groove on late into the night.
An Insider’s Tip
Brighton has a lot to offer for the $53 lift ticket–high-speed lifts, deep snow, hikeable inbounds and backcountry terrain. And, with 500+ inches of annual snowfall, you can always find powder stashes in the trees. Check out the new Milly high-speed quad for quick access to the Mt. Millicent area, which has plenty of pucker-factor lines. I also dig the night skiing, which is a great time if you bundle up.
New for This Season
