Ski resort located in Utah's Big Cottonwood Canyon. Winter activities include skiing, snowboarding, ski lessons and night skiing.
Brighton is a reasonably priced and really good for kids. They have a ski school for kids starting at 4 years old. They also have a magic carpet lift, which you can take your kids to learn skiing. All kids under 10 ski free with skiing adult. They have a daycare for little ones while mom and dad shredding the snow))
My husband and daughter have gone skiing here and have always been really happy with the skiing. They have found have trying other ski areas in the area that this one is best for a beginner. (She is just 10 and went there also at 8.) The lines for food get long at lunch time so they always pack food and eat in the parking lot.
Gather up your family and head to Brighton Ski Resort for their night skiing! Make sure you bundle your little ones up tight! Night skiing tends to be less costly than day skiing - so it's perfect if you are teaching your children to ski. There is a great little bunny hill. While it is dark outside, the runs are well lit and it's a fun experience!
My oldest son learned to ski here! It has a perfect bunny hill! Usually we go night skiing after 4:00 because it's much cheaper or they have promotions with Peanut Roll bars (2 for one) or buy one get one frees, but you have to look around for them. Great hills, great snow! A little far for us (compared to Sundance) but great for adults and kids.
This place brings back great memories to me! My parents brought us up from California to Brighton to ski. I learned to ski here and always felt like it was nice, homey and a great place to be! :) Now I'll take my kids here once they're old enough. There are lots of places along the way if you need to rent equipment as well! :) Have fun!
You will love this Ski resort. It is really great for all those little snow boarders you have. Lots of great lifts. They have some really fun places to eat too. I think this resort is great for the price. They have really great runs and alot of powder usually.
Brighton is a good Mountain for beginner skiers and snowboarders but has lots of terrain for the experienced skier or boarder. The price is about average for a day on the mountain and the cafeteria has the standard slightly overpriced food but there is a lot of variety including a GIANT bowl of chili overflowing with cheese for about $5. The amount of parking is ample and even on some of the busiest days you can still park relatively close. One of the best things for beginners is the magic carpet so you can start learning without the nervousness of getting off a lift.
You will not be disappointed if you visit Brighton no matter what age category you fall into. No overly expensive great bang for you buck. Really nice terrain parks for you to pull out all your tricks. Great family resort reasonably priced. The night skiing is also wonderful multiple lifts and a great terrain park.
Great ski instructors, beautifully groomed runs, excellent hot cocoa! Need I say more? I LOVE LOVE LOVE this resort. I have snowboarded there for years, and have taken my niece and nephew (from about the ages of 9 and 7). Passes are realistically priced and worth the money.
I learned how to ski here when I was 4 years old. I went back with my son and found the resort as family freindly as it was back then. They have parent and toddler ski lessons on long, wide baby hills! On a beautiful big mountain that has many challenging runs for mom and dad. This resort was made for families and kids ski free!
