Brighton really seems to have it all, this is a mountain with abundant terrain from beginner hills to incredibly steep bowls, narrow trees, cruisers, bump runs, chutes and everything else a skier could want. The ski school is excellent, the lodge is very family &...More

Truth be told, I wasn't supposed to come to Brighton, but the parking was full at Solitude, so ended up getting one of the last parking spots. It was incredibly crowded and near impossible to find a map. Most other resorts I've been to have...More

This is a fun resort that seems more oriented towards locals. It offers night skiing which is really fun and less expensive, as well as a twilight pass (amazing if you’re not a morning person like me :)) The views are awesome from the top...More

Not expensive, compared to other nearby ski resorts, great terrain and generally no lines for the lifts. Several runs for various ability levels.

I'm from the east coast of the US. This mountain was my fave out of Deer Valley, Alta and Brighton resorts. This resort most resembled the mountain slopes I am used to and was more "my speed". I like blue trails and the occasional black...More

I've been skiing at Brighton for many years, most recently in early 2019. They have some of the best snow in the region and do a nice job grooming. The facilities and lift arrangements are fine, though the food in the cafeteria is pricey, even...More
