We did not come to ski, but to hike. We heard recommendations that the hikes were nice. Spirit Lake was at the start of the hike. We hiked up to Lake Solitude. It seemed more than a mile to the lake. The path to Twin Lakes was closed for construction. The chair lift was operating. Some people were playing the... More

My wife and I drove to Brighton while visiting Utah. We arrived in Brighton on a beautiful morning, and put our dog on a leash and went for a walk around this ski area. Within in 10 minutes we were approached by local residents telling us that having a dog in Brighton and its associated canyon (Big Cottonwood) was illegal,... More

If you live near Salt Lake City, you really need to visit Silver Lake. It's a beautiful lake near Brighton Ski Resort, at the end of Big Cottonwood Canyon. It is a great place to visit with young children, there is a boardwalk that goes most of the way around it that should work great for a stroller. In the... More

This was my first west coast ski resort and I felt a bit underwhelmed. I had just come from snowshoe in WV and felt brighton was not a good representation of the huge mountains I was told about. However, it was a wonderful location to start off, the instructors were really nice. The food and amenities left something to be... More

Brighton is very kid friendly. Good terrain for all level of skiers and snowboarders. Lots of lifts service several different areas which have everything from glades to cliffs to bowls. Bus service available from SLC. Great place for families.

I can't say how much I enjoyed this little gem of a ski resort! Just a short drive from affordable hotels in Salt Lake City you'll find this charming ski resort that has every kind of terrain you could want. It's not very big, but you don't need a big mountain unless you have a million people on the slopes.... More

My son's name is Brighton so this was on our hit list. Elevation helped this resort keeping the fresh snow we received good all day. TREES were AWESOME. I'd go back just to play in them again. Everyone in our group loved the trees so much we spent most of the day there. Nice comfortable friendly employees. Not as pretentious... More

Just back from Utah for Spring Break, the first day we skied Brighton. A beautiful "Blue Bird" day, they hadn't had new snow in a couple of days but the runs were groomed very nicely. Brighton doesn't have that much Expert terrain but is a great place to take the family, there's fun, rolling runs that the younger skiers will... More
