Brighton is one of Utah’s best kept secrets that you may have only heard about by word of mouth. With no expensive advertising campaigns or social media mass posts, this small resort prefers to fly under the radar. As Utah’s only resort completely accessible by high speed quad chairlifts, you are sure to spend more time on the mountain than in lift lines. The ski and snowboard season typically starts around mid-November and has been known to go as long as mid-April. Don’t rely on mother nature though, the season is really quite short. Take advantage of the fresh powder and book your next trip sooner than later!

Check out the mountain

Brighton Resort is family-friendly and the perfect place for riders of all skill levels. Adventure seekers will find solace in the varying terrain. Ride through cliffs, trees and chutes to enjoy a bit of a natural obstacle course. There are also terrain parks at the mountain for freestyle skiers and snowboards to work on their tricks. If you still can’t get enough after a full day of skiing, fear not. Brighton Resort offers night skiing on over two hundred acres of slopes until 9pm.

Bruce up your skills

Brighton Resort offers ski and snowboard classes for riders of all ages and skill levels. Placing your child in a kid lesson and program is a great way for them to start learning the basics and for you to enjoy a day on the slopes. While spending time with your child is always a good option, leave the teaching to the pros. Brighton Resort hires some of the best skiers and snowboarders in the area to make sure your child is learning the basics. You can also choose from daily or weekly programs as well. Kids aren’t always the only ones that need lessons though. Adult lessons are available for full day programs or workshops, you choose what best suits your abilities. If you would rather have one on one sessions with a qualified instructor be sure to check out the mountain’s private lessons.

During your stay at Brighton Resort you can enjoy meals in one of the many on-hill restaurants.  With so many options available you won’t need to feel stressed trying to make your lunch in advance. At the end of the day be sure to check out Molly Green’s for a well-deserved pint. Apres is the best part of any ski day!
