Brighton

Brighton ski area and resort started with one tow-rope in 1936 and has since blossomed into a world-class mountain resort offering a wide variety of terrain covered by an incredible amount of snow. But they haven’t let it get to their head; the resort does minimal advertising and depends heavily upon word of mouth to get visitors to the resort every season.

Boasting the same 500+ inches of annual snowfall and staggering peaks as other resorts in Utah, but you won’t find the insane crowds, long-lift lines, and bevy of distractions. This is the only resort in Utah where high-speed quad lifts reach 100 percent of the ski terrain. The resort is spread over 1,050 acres with 1,875-vertical feet of incredible world-famous skiing.

The night ticket also sets the resort apart and is widely considered to be one of the best values in skiing or snowboarding. And it continues to offer the most night terrain in the Wasatch range. Visitors can enjoy skiing or snowboarding on more than 20 runs and over 200 acres, which are served by three separate lifts, including the high-speed Crest quad and the Majestic quad. Night lifts are offered beginning in mid-December and continue operation until early April. Additional nighttime tickets include the Twilight lift pass, which is good from midday until close or the Brighton Super day ticket, good for both the day and night.

This resort has some of the most amazing terrain parks with some of the best features to be found anywhere in the West. Big Bertha is a 50-foot tabletop that if you hit it just right will launch skiers more that 50 feet into the clean Utah air. The resort also houses the totally mind blowing 500-foot-long superpipe with immaculately groomed 14-foot walls. There are a wide range of artificial features along the run to challenge even the most seasoned freestyle skier to the best of their abilities. Candy Land features around 15 hits, rails, and boxes. This park is far too intense for beginners and children, they should head to the neophyte’s park where they can practice on smaller and milder jumps, boxes, table tops, and rails. You will find additional helpful information with Ski Experience and Terrain Parks.

Located slope-side, the 20-room lodge provides guests with accessibility to day and night skiing and snowboarding.

Guests planning a four-night or more stay are encouraged to check out Brighton’s unbelievable ski and stay deals and special vacation packages offered throughout the season.
