Jan Pred week 2023 in THE GREAT4ST POWDER I have had the joty to skin in at least qd years, we stayed in cottonwood area, visited Brighton four times and Snowbird-Alta only twice because: Littke Cottinwood a canyon was Sooo impacted slow up ( 2-3 hrs) bumper to bumper tgat it was hard to be ecstatic at end of day at Snowbird Alta despite tge sniw. Brighton was incredibly less expensive, FANTASIC powder, no crowds and easy to get to great beyond the ropes more untouched powder with steady return to baeclifts. Fun atmosphere with locals coming up in afternoon a d night skiing. HOWEVR, zero on the apres ski even just relaxing food and drink & atmosphere. Not looking to party, but, when dine it’s time to get down tge canyoun ... Full Review
It’s so small and crowded you have to hunt for powder
Boasts high speed lifts but has the longest lines
Show up at 6am and wait til 830 to get in line or it’s going to be tracked out before you get there
I’ve never had a season pass i couldn’t use because of how busy a place is ... Full Review
Great place to ski and not just for families. Don’t be fooled by the lower than normal feet skied per day, this is some of the best tree and powder skiing anywhere. Brighton has the “Locals Only” vibe, family vibe and the stoke Powder vibe all in one!... Full Review
Stuck up there new years eve. People showed up for night skiing but they never posted they were closed. Parking lot and canyon were completely stopped and everyone is stuck up there with no staff around helping out. Brighton has totally lost it’s flare. There is no effective management in place and it’s a bit of a nightmare now. If you plan on going up just remember you may not get home for about 2 or 3 more hours. Every time we go there’s a problem in the resort or in the canyon. ... Full Review

I started skiing late in life at 53, and now at 57, I'm on the blacks like a pro! Brighton was my first real ski resort, so I consider it my very first ski home. GREAT place and so much FUN. So glad I chose this resort to lose my ski-V. Great runs, fantastic staff, superb ski school. And I have to give a shout out to the lodge there...not glitz and glam, but oh so nice after a long day on the slopes. ... Full Review
I love Brighton, it's a great Mt. with good terrain, not too crowded and cool people. They have night skiing and Molly's, the on-site bar, has a good beer selection and great homemade food, I never had a bad meal. ... Full Review
Brighton is a true classic. Not too big, yet plenty of variety to keep it interesting for several days of skiing. Lots of good beginner and intermediate terrain for recreational skiers. Great old-school mountain vibe.... Full Review
Love VAil? Love the free cookies at Beaver Creek and people in fur coats? Love the ski snobs at Deer Valley? This is not the place for you.
Brighton is an excellent place to rip through the trees, or go outside the gates for some challenging near country. It is not fancy, which is exactly why it is a great place to ski and ride. I have skied at 68 resorts around the US and Canada and Brighton is in my top 5. Come for the trees and near country, stay for the chill vibe.... Full Review
There are so many options to do here, you can ride the park, go through the trees or just hang out on the bunny hill. I think Brighton is one of the best resorts.... Full Review
