What started with one rope tow in 1936 now has become a world-class mountain resort offering a wide variety of terrain covered by an incredible amount of snow. Brighton's three high-speed quad, one fixed-grip quad, and three double chair lifts provide access to this winter wonderland of fun and diversity for all types of skiers and snowboarders.
Always striving for improvement, Brighton prides itself on its long tradition of providing the greatest experience at the most affordable price. At Brighton we build tradition, but we don't live in the past.
Brighton boasts 21% beginner, 40% intermediate, and 39% advanced/expert runs providing a unique skiing or snowboarding experience for everyone in the family. Most of our seven lifts, including three high-speed quads, access all types of terrain making it easy for families to ride the lift together and still meet at the bottom. For more adventurous expert skiers and snowboarders, Brighton's lifts, via our open boundary policy, provide virtually unlimited access to some of the best back-country in Utah. Be prepared.
Being located in Big Cottonwood Canyon, Utah, Brighton receives over 500 inches of "the greatest snow on earth" each season. For powder skiing and snowboarding Brighton can't be beat! With over 66 runs on two mountains, the longest being over 3 miles, there are plenty of fresh tracks to be had. Brighton also meticulously grooms many runs each night, leaving behind some of the best corduroy in the state.
Brighton is open mid-November through late April from 9am - 9pm Monday through Saturday (when night lifts are operable) and 9am - 4pm on Sunday. When night lifts are not offered, lifts operate from 9am - 4pm seven days a week.
Brighton is located at the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon, only 35 minutes southeast of downtown Salt Lake City and 35 miles from Salt Lake International Airport. To get here from the Airport simply take I-215 South (it will turn East) until you reach the 6200 South exit, then turn right (it will turn into Wasatch Blvd.), then turn left at Big Cottonwood Canyon (there's a 7-Eleven on the corner).
