Brighton is consistently voted number one for "Best Value" and "Best Child/Family Friendly Terrain,” and though some resort ratings are biased, in this case, they're on the money. Brighton can’t help but attract the kiddies- especially the ones on snowboards. Now that Alta has replaced Germania and Watson Shelter with state of the art construction, Brighton becomes the #2 old school resort behind Powder Mountain. Heads up- The Millicent lift is destined for the scrap pile after this season. A new high-speed lift is planned for the area, making your access to the backcountry that much smoother. Because I don't snowboard and I enjoy steeper, longer runs, Brighton isn't usually my first choice unless I'm skiing with beginners or intermediates.
