Explore Ski City's Ski Resorts: Brighton
Brighton is arguably Salt Lake’s most laidback ski hill. Unpretentious and friendly, its sprawling runs attract a young crowd, a large contingent of which are snowboarders. Brighton has a well-deserved distinction of being the resort where most Salt Lakers learn to ride and ski. A combination of lower lift-ticket prices, free skiing for kids ages 10 and under, an appealing mix of beginner and expert terrain, wide, forgiving runs, and a mellow attitude make Brighton a great option for beginners and casual skiers and boarders.
Free tickets for the younger kids mean generations of Salt Lakers have grown up bombing down Brighton’s tree-lined runs. The resort offers snow sports lessons, so kids can learn to ski or snowboard. Parents and big kids can tackle the expert terrain off of Clayton Peak while the little ones hone their skills on the greens and blues below the Majestic and Milly Express lifts. As another bonus, Brighton shares a boundary with Solitude and offers a pass that allows you to access both resorts.
