Brighton has excellent snow fall and a great variety of terrain. I am a snowboarder and a season pass holder. I go 2-3 times a week and this year has been absolutely nuts due to the snow fall lately. Brighton is an old "resort", nothing like Park City. It amenities are decent, but somewhat limited for larger crowds. However, I enjoy Brighton's "old-school" feel most days. If you hit the cafeteria or Molly Green's early (11:15am) for lunch, you can avoid the crowds. Get there right at 9am, when the lifts open and head to Milly, Great Western or Snake Creek for the best snow and shortest lift lines.
Minor downside for me is the large amount of 20 something male snowboarders who lean toward rude sometimes. Most of the time, I don't encounter any rudeness, but I've had many more rude encounters here than at other resorts. Still...... the POW makes up for ANYTHING!
