Brighton Resort is a great choice for skiers and riders who are looking for consistent snowfall combined with immaculate groomed trails and wide variety of beginner to advanced terrain. Brighton Ski Resort is an excellent option for families due to terrain that allows for beginners and intermediates to ski off of the same lift.

The resort is home to a great ski and snowboard school with group and private lessons for every ability level. The ski area also offers night skiing with over 200 illuminated acres. The resort is a great combination of terrain and snow quality and one of Utah’s favorites.
