I think Brighton must be the smallest most uninteresting, over packed resort around. Park city has 7x the usable area. Snowbard had much better advanced runs and brighton is lacking a good bunny hill for beginners. If your new to the sport or of your an expert your batter off at... More

The lifts are slow! The lines are long and the ski resort is small! Not to mention the small over packed parking Lot. You might get turned away because the parking lot is full. But on the off chance you find a parking spot have fun on the very few over packed, tracked out runs.... More

Brighton is like the small town of ski resorts. It may not have a gondola, but the snow can’t be beat, and the people there seem friendlier than Those at Snowbird, PC, or really any of the other resorts. Relatively small resort, but there’s still plenty of mountain for... More

Brighton is a great resort for the value and is really easy to get to and the terrain comes in all varieties. The option to hike in/out of the resort to unpatrolled backcountry is pretty sweet, but the mountain can be super crowded and overall its pretty small compared to other... More

Brighton is my favorite resort in Utah. It truly does have the greatest snow on earth. It is the last resort in Utah that still has a small town/old school vibe. The prices are drastically cheaper than others in the state, but the riding is just as good. This was the first... More

I spent season 2016/17 in brigton resort. This may be the best resort for people staying in salt lake... Best value for sure. The groomers are not so exciting, but will keep busy the average intermediate rider. Where this resort really excels is in the tree runs. Lots and lots of... More
