Mountain Information:
Skiing and riding is central to the whole Brighton experience. Being one of the oldest ski resorts in Utah, they just care about helping you to hit the slopes.

Beginner terrain makes up 21% of the area, followed by 40% intermediate and 39% advanced, across its 1,875 feet of vertical. The clever placement of the chairlifts means all abilities can take the chairs up together, and then choose their own adventure to get down again on their preferred ability of terrain, be that on the groomers, or trees and chutes!

Our ski tips for Brighton

Take the Great Western Express from the base for some of the best views of the Timpanogos (where Sundance Resort is located). Nice tree skiing/riding back to the base. The Milly Express offers a TON of amazing terrain right from the base area. Backbone is a classic blue with fun rollers and usually groomed. Dip into the trees to explore around and find some hidden powder stashes long after storms. Snake Creek Express and Crest Express are must do’s. In general, the best way to ski/ride Brighton, is to start at the Great Western Express or Milly Express and work your way to the opposite side of the mountain. Brighton receives a LOT of snow so it’s always amazing on powder days. Brighton offers access to backcountry – make sure you check current avalanche conditions, have the appropriate backcountry gear and never go alone.
