Brighton is always a reliable choice for Utah's infamous powder but without the price tag and crowds of nearby resorts. On the other hand, it's much smaller with a relatively short vertical drop. Nevertheless, Brighton is an affordable locals mountain with a laid-back vibe with a good variety of runs and park scene.

Very fun resort with let crowds and great terrain. Very friendly staff. Lots of lifts and runs that are longer and fun to ride. There is also easily accessible back country. Molly’s green is a fun restaurant and bar. When you get done riding.... More

Definition of back door boarding. Family friendly. And what makes it even better, they offer a variety of days and nights at various prices great for EVERYONE to enjoy at least a day (or night). We have gone here pretty frequently and never seem to be amazed.. I’m telling you, it’s the best snow in the nation.... More

Beware the greats Brighton Flats in the middle ! Fun, but a little on the short side if you are looking for long leg burning runs. Lots of great beginner and intermediate terrain !... More

Sorry skiers the word is out. Brighton is snowboarding paradise. Long perfectly sloped runs, nicely spaced trees and some steeps as well. Oh and the PapapaPowder! Top of the canyon for a reason!... More

Great local vibe. Fun family atmosphere if you want it. Fun grungy crew to grind with if you want it. Steeps and learner terrain. Parks and powder. Something for everyone. Difficult commute at 9am on a pow day.... More

Brighton is a great resort for beginners and families. They have some steeper terrain, but the majority is pretty mellow. Their terrain park is decent, but not on the same level as Mammoth or Breckenridge. It's a great resort for cruising groomers and has a family-owned feel.... More

Good resort if your a master of the sport or just getting into it. The day skiing is incredible, and the night skiing is better than most. If your into park skiing you'll find what your looking for. If not, you'll still enjoy the terrain.... More

Brighton Resort ReviewsTimber W.

This resort is a favorite for mobbing through the woods. It is definitely one of the most fun. It lacks some of the park city amenities, but that keeps the crowds away and keeps it focused on the right stuff, POW mashing and bombing. Good mix of terrain. Too much fun to miss.... More

This resort has it all except lodging. The terrain is fantastic and the good stuff is accessible enough but not so much that it’s tracked out before you can enjoy it. You can have fun all day, and kids ski free unde 10... More

Brighton Resort ReviewsMatthew J.

Brighton is my all round favorite resort if the snow hit right. Perfect back country for beginners, yet something a expert can have fun with hitting jumps between trees. This would be heaven on earth, if it just wasn’t Utah sadly. Hard to enjoy a mountain without a real beer... More
