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
3 star rating because its Utah and the other resorts have more to offer especially if your an advanced, expert skier.
Reminds me of a kid friendly place.The intermediate runs funnels lots of people into narrow trails. The advance runs are more open and don't see many skiers so that is a plus. ... Full Review
This is our second trip where we are spending part of our ski time at Brighton. The cost is reasonable, especially when buying tickets in advance. We had finished skiing 3 days at Solitude when a Spring storm came through and landed 6 plus inches of fresh powder. Great tree skiing for varied ability levels.... Full Review
I hadn't been to Brighton in 15 years and forgot how much fun it is. The snow is better than anywhere and you don't need 300 runs when you have 60+ really good ones. The resort atmosphere is very low key and simply just easy. While it might not have the name recognition of some of the other resorts, Brighton has everything a skier could need. If I had the luxury of living around SLC, this would be my home hill. ... Full Review
