Brighton is arguably (but not really) 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. Why? A combination of lower lift-ticket prices, free skiing for kids ages 5 and under, an appealing mix of beginner and expert terrain, wide, forgiving runs, and a mellow attitude.  

Free tickets for the youngest kids mean generations of Salt Lakers have grown up bombing down Brighton’s tree-lined runs. Last season, the resort started offering its “ski in three or it's free” ski school program which guarantees beginners will learn to ski in three sessions or the classes are, yes, free. Mom, Dad, and the 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.

It’s also home to Ski City's only night skiing with more than 200 acres of lighted runs to extend your day on mountain.

Brighton’s laidback vibe is most evident in its base area, which is a no-frills mix of a family cabins in full-on alpine A-frame style and its friendly watering hole, Molly Green’s Tavern. Brighton keeps it simple—burger, beer, nachos on a sunny patio for your midday reprieve. Because, after all, you came to Salt Lake to ski, board, and have fun. Why make it complicated?
