Mt. Brighton is definetly snow-boarder freindly with several rails and a half pipe (pipe was almost all grass at the top). I went just before x-mas and it seemed like it was all 14-17 year old wanna be punk kids. I went to ski because it is close to home. Most runs were not open as reported. Runs are extremly short and not challenging at all. Hill was all ice and was not groomed as advertized. With limited runs open, not at all worth the $30 lift ticket. Also service at the hill side bar sucks. it took way too long to get a re-fill on an empty beverage.
If in the area and dont mind driving a few extra minutes, I reccommend Mt. Holly. More skier freindly and while the runs are not challenging, they seem better layed out for a bit longer ride.
