About the Ski Resort

Located on the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah is Brighton Ski Resort.

Brighton, a tradition since 1936, has recently made giant leaps forward with new night skiing terrain and a new $2.2 million day lodge.

The new Brighton Center houses expanded retail and rental space, along with lots of new restrooms and lockers.

Brighton is also once again expanding its night skiing terrain, adding three more trails for a total of 18 lighted trails and 200 acres of night skiing or snowboarding.

You will find learn-to-ski programs, free skiing for kids under 10, two high-speed express quads and tremendous snow.

Brighton is located southeast of downtown Salt Lake City. Convenient UTA bus shuttle services the area from any number of locations in the Salt Lake area. By car, it's a 25 minute drive from the city center and 30 miles from the airport.
