Brighton Resort: Fun for the Whole Family

If you’re looking for a Utah ski resort that’s all jazz hands and high kicks to get your attention, keep walking. Brighton Resort is not for you.


The small but perfectly formed Brighton Resort owes its popularity to word of mouth, not flashy self promotion. Oh, and its Utah Family Magazine number-one rating for affordability and terrain doesn’t hurt either.


Did someone say terrain? Yeah, yeah, we know it was us. But it’s worth mentioning twice, because Brighton is the only ski resort in the region that’s 100% accessible by high-speed quads. In fact, there are five in total ready to transport you safely to wherever you fancy across 1,050 acres and 1,875 vertical feet of Utah’s best snow.


Is your family travelling en masse? Brighton’s aforementioned accessibility enables you each to pick the trail that best matches your ability, meeting at the bottom to share stories of your grand ski adventures. Plus, if you have more chidlers than you know what to do with, you’ll be pleased to learn kids seven and under ski/ride free, while eight-to-12-year-olds enjoy special pricing.


If a genteel meander down the slope isn’t for you, Brighton Resort offers plenty of cliffs, trees, terrain parks, deep powder days, and awesome back country. Brighton’s family-friendly status means many of your fellow snow enthusiasts stick to groomers, leaving you spoiled for fresh tracks.


As one happy Destination Utah customer put it: “If you don’t want to fight for your freshies, I highly recommend skiing here.”


You can ski long into the night at Brighton Resort. With over 200 acres of runs, pipe and park, all well lit, it’s the biggest night skiing area in Utah. And when you’re done don’t forget to pop in to  Molly Greens or the Alpine Rose to fill your belly.
