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... More

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. ... More

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. ... More

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. ... More

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... More

Great powder without the frills.Close to the city with easy access to bus. It has a down home feeling with lots of backcountry. Great place to bring friends, family. They have great kid free or cheaper rates.

I actually skied Brighton the most last season. The main reason being cost. I don't go enough anymore to justify a season pass so I'm always looking for a good deal. You can always find some kind of discount to Brighton, from their Quad Wednesday to various 2 for 1 night skiing... More
