Brighton Resort Opening Day Nov. 11, 2022
@BrightonResort
Brighton Resort is opening for the season Friday at 9 a.m.

Big Cottonwood Canyon will be busy Friday morning. Brighton Resort has announced it will open with three chairlifts on Veterans Day.

Brighton resort has received five feet of snow since October 22 and more is expected throughout the day.
Brighton Director of Marketing Jared Winkler said 50 to 200 snowboarders and skiers have been coming up every day to ride the trails over the last couple of weeks.

Starting Friday, Majestic, Explorer and Snake Creek lifts will run seven days a week from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Crest Express is expected to open soon. Lift ticket prices have been reduced until more of the mountain opens.

Friday is Veterans Day and Brighton will offer free skiing or riding to all active military and veterans. These lift tickets will only be available at the ticket windows and proof of eligibility is required.

Night riding is scheduled to start December 12.

Solitude Mountain Resort, located just below Brighton in Little Cottonwood Canyon, announced last week that it will open Friday as well.
