Find Your Ski Area:

Mt. Brighton

Located less than an hour from Detroit and Lansing, Mt. Brighton Ski Resort is consistently described by locals as a great place to learn to ski and snowboard. A new member of the Vail Resorts, this quaint ski area will see roughly $10 million worth of renovations in the upcoming years.

Midwestern Mountains

Mt. Brighton and other ski resorts nearby like Alpine Valley, offer a winter activity sport to the folks of Michigan and visitors to the Detroit area. With 100 percent snowmaking ability, you won’t have to rely on Mother Nature to fill the hills here with powder. In addition to 130 skiable acres, the ski area also has two terrain parks, which provide a great practice area for snowboarders and free skiers alike. The longest run is 1,500 feet and the terrain is broken up into 30 percent beginner greens, 40 percent intermediate blues, and 30 percent expert black diamond trails.

For a Midwestern place to ski, check out the mountain’s 230 vertical feet, and learn to ski or snowboard with top notch instructors who receive nothing but great reviews. Once you’ve moved on from your instruction, you’ll explore 26 trails, and then head over to the The Bauery Bar & Grill for a tasty lunch in a restaurant that overlooks the mountain.

Off the Slopes

You will not find slope-side lodging here, but the area is just outside two major cities and finding lodging will not be a challenge. And the town’s people of Brighton welcome visitors to their many local restaurants and coffee shops.

Getting Here

This ski resort is just off of I-96, exit 145 and is easily accessible from Detroit, Windsor, Toledo, Jackson, Flint, Lansing, and Ann Arbor.
