Solitude and Brighton
About Solitude and Brighton
Solitude Ski Resort and Brighton Ski Resort are located in Big Cottonwood Canyon in the southeast corner of the Salt Lake Valley. Brighton was the first Utah ski resort and is one of the oldest in America. Brighton Ski Resort might be old, but it’s far from old-fashioned.
It was the first Utah resort to allow snowboarders, and it continues to be popular with funky snowboarders who make the most of the terrain parks, natural freestyle hits and the abundance of powder. Brighton Utah doesn’t have any of the trimmings, but the atmosphere is incredibly family-friendly, and it offers good value skiing and snowboarding so it’s very popular with families and teenagers.
Solitude Utah is renowned for uncrowded slopes and plenty of powder, the perfect combination for powder hounds. “Solitude” describes the calm and quietness of the relatively undiscovered Solitude Ski Resort, especially when compared with the crowds at nearby resorts. Up for the challenge? Solitude is an intermediate skier's delight. More than half of the 1,200 acres, 65 runs, 8 lifts and 2,000 vertical feet are labeled for those in the middle.
No trip to Utah is complete without visiting Zion & Bryce Canyon National Parks
