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 place I ever went, and I learned to board here with my brother and dad. It's a great family resort. They always treat their customers as family.
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 Aspen and pine trees to get yourself lost into. Also magnificent chutes in the side country. Not to mention that it's the resort that gets most snow in Utah. The only drawback is that is a small resort... Specially comparing to the bird or park city. For a day trip 5 stars, for a season... Depending on what you like. Also it's more for boarders.
small mountain with good lake effect snow, quick from airport, some fun advanced but not huge, good value for the ticket price, not to expensive, not much town or entertainment going on, could use more music for Apre Ski in base area.
Love Molly Greens, and the people are always great to chill with on the mountain. Climb a little bit for some great rewards, or stick inside and dance with the trees.
Brighton is an incredible Resort! It is the last family-friendly resort in Utah! This is the only Resort in Utah that still allows children 10 years of age and under to ski for free. They still care about family value, and they're lift pass prices show that. I have skied every major resort in Utah, and I bought my season pass this year to Brighton Resort because of how they care about families. I would recommend this resort to anyone with families that is trying to ski or snowboard, they have Terrain for every skill level. They have fun Backcountry, but the things my kids like best are the incredible terrain parks. They also have some of the best in between tree skiing in the world. This is truly one of the greatest Resorts left on Earth, and it is not owned by big conglomerates. This is the last of the little guys, and it shows.
I love Brighton. Best value and terrain for my hard earned dollar! I buy 10 packs and if I don't use all of them I can take them back before October 1st to get credit for the next seasons pass!
Went to Brighton for the first time last season and loved it!!! Amazing snow and every run is a blast. Really fun trails through the trees and off the runs. Atmosphere is fun and welcoming and more laid back and friendly than Park City. Will definitely be going back this year.
Love this place. It great if you love lots of powder and variable terrain. Can't say enough about it. The back country is the best. You can access the canyons and other resorts.
Brighton is a great way to experience the cottonwood canyons and Utah powder. The Backcountry access is some of the best anywhere in the Wasatch. There is not much by the way of lodging or apres ski at Brighton itself but honestly that fact only adds to the experience. Brighton is all about riding. Forget everything and lose yourself in world class Wasatch powder.
It's a small resort, the slopes aren't that steep... BUT it has the best tree runs around, exceptional side country and the most important for me: it has night ski!! Nothing better than shred or jump in the park after a shitty day at work. Didn't mention the quality of the snow because it's Utah good... Moreless the same as in snowbird/Alta...
