Activity: Skiing at Brighton Mountain Resort, Little Cottonwood Canyon, Utah, United States

MrsWT73 took today off to rest and catch up on work commitments. I had used my 3 free ski days “at another Epic Resort” courtesy of my 10 day Whistler Blackcomb Edge Card at Park City and had skied pretty much all over the hill. I didn’t fancy paying $199 USD for some mostly intermediate spring skiing at Deer Valley so I decided to check out one of the other ski areas around Salt Lake City. I ended up with old school Brighton, which was situated about 1 hour away from us in Park City in Big Cottonwood Canyon accessible from the Salt Lake City side of the mountains.

With that decision done, I packed up the car and set out on the drive.

Eventually arriving to Brighton, Utah about 1 hour later.

It was old school skiing at Brighton with a lot less people and many more fir trees. I spend the day exploring the place and enjoying all the scenery and fresh air that the place had to offer.

After a full day, it was back to Park City for a dip in the pool at the hotel. It was a great last day of skiing for the trip. We had dinner up the way at Squatters Roadhouse Grill, a place that I had eaten at before but always great quality and perfectly walkable from the Hotel Park City. Other travelers thought so as well as the place as was absolutely packed on our visit; even being a weeknight.
