Brighton Ski Resort

Brighton Ski Resort is a low-key resort big on personality.

Brighton Resort covers all aspects of skiing and snowboarding.

Venture out as a family, enjoying beginner to expert runs. Utah Family Magazine ranks Brighton Ski Resort #1 for affordability and terrain. Kids seven and under ski/ride free, while the resort also offers special pricing for eight to 12 year olds

You’ll find three terrain parks linking the top of the mountain to the base, all of which can be accessed via high-speed quads. That means at Brighton Ski Resort you can ride as a family, each take the trail that matches your abilities, then meet at the bottom. Perfect.

Feeling adventurous? Then tackle the cliffs, trees, terrain parks, deep powder days, and awesome back country. Fancy a bit of night skiing? No worries. At Brighton Ski Resort, runs, pipe and park are all illuminated.

If you’re after an enjoyable day (or night!) on the mountain, hit this Utah ski resort.

Insider Tips

If you have good visibility, venture over to Mt Millicent for some steep, open-bowl skiing.

On a powder day, don’t be afraid to get into the trees – there’s fantastic skiing to be had.

Initially some of the lines may be tight; however, they soon open up into good, deep bowls that catch A LOT of snow.


Simon Frezza-Brighton Review


It may be small, but it has awesome skiing!

We were lucky enough to ski Brighton Resort on a powder day. They had received 15 inches overnight and heading up the canyon the snow flakes were still falling thick and fast!

The great thing about the resort was that a lot of beginners and families were out skiing, and they tended to stay on the groomers. This meant the off piste skiing was absolutley awesome and fresh tracks were to be had all day!

We also found that there was a lot of flat runouts for snowboarders which may have deterred them from skiing off piste also.

We enjoyed the runs off the Great Western Express and the Snake Creek Express. We hiked a little into Snake Bowl for some short, steep lines through really good deep powder.

After lunch we skied over at Mt Milicent which had longer, steep runs. The snow was still really good and there were not a lot of people over there!

The village at Brighton is relatively small, but the burgers are good and Molly Green’s is a great place for a drink after an awesome powder day!

If you dont want to fight for your freshies, I highly recommend skiing here.
