You may have clocked out of work for the day, but there are plenty of board meetings to be had at Brighton when the night descends upon the Utah resort – especially in the final weeks of 2012. With night skiing and riding in full effect at Brighton, the lifts will spin Mondays to Saturdays until 9 p.m. (no night skiing Christmas Eve, Christmas Day or New Year's Eve).

From now through Saturday, Dec. 22, head up to Brighton any time after 4 p.m. and rack up some post-work laps for $20. From Dec. 26 to 29, night skiing rates hold at a steady $25; these night skiing lift tickets are on sale for everyone and there's no need to bring any coupons.

Your $20 lift ticket goes even further on Friday, Dec. 21 with the first of five Friday Night Bonfire Socials at Brighton. Beginning at 4 p.m., Brighton will serve up free s’mores, hot chocolate and a slew of gear giveaways, all while you enjoy the good company of fellow skiers and riders around the fire pits at the Alpine Rose. Also on Dec. 21 is the Analog Go Huck Yourself Rail Jam for a boost of entertainment. All events during the Friday Night Bonfire Social, except night skiing, are free to the public.

If your shredding plans involve an overnight visit, book Brighton’s Ho, Ho, Ho Lodging Special by Monday, Dec. 24 and receive a one-night stay and two lift tickets for $149 (plus tax). This lodging special isn’t available Dec. 26 to Jan. 2 and must be booked over the phone by calling 801-532-4731 x 120.
