Bright Ski Resort is a great destination for families, beginners and intermediate skiers. Averaging 500 inches of snow a season, the resort’s 66 trails are covered in light, fluffy snow creating a winter paradise for visitors.

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

Where Is Brighton Ski Resort Located?

It is located less than an hour from Salt Lake City in Big Cottonwood Canyon. You can fly into Salt Lake City International Airport, and then drive 40 minutes (35 miles) to the resort. You should rent a car with 4-wheel drive capabilities since it’s rough getting into Big Cottonwood Canyon during the winter.

Other options for getting to the resort include airport transfers via coaches or by taking the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) Ski Bus. The park and ride for the bus is located near the entrance to the Big Cottonwood Canyon in Sandy, Utah.
