Skiing Utah


Brighton Ski Resort is a ski area located in Big Cottonwood Canyon, 48 km from downtown Salt Lake City. It was the first ski resort in Utah and one of the first in the United States. Brighton was started in 1936 when members of the Alpine Ski Club built a rope tow from wire and an old elevator motor. Brighton provides skiers and snowboarders with top-notch trails. Brighton is also known for its extensive backcountry access, visitors can purchase single ride lift tickets to reach the backcountry access gates at the top of the resort. Although the terrain inbounds at Brighton can rival that of the backcountry, Brighton is known for its cliffs, chutes, bowls and natural features (source Visit Utah, photo: Marc Piscotty).

Solitude Mountain Resort is a ski resort located in the Big Cottonwood Canyon of the Wasatch Mountains, thirty miles southeast of Salt Lake City, Utah. With 66 trails, 4.9 km² and 624 m vertical, Solitude is one of the smaller ski resorts near Salt Lake City. It is a family-oriented mountain, with a wider range of beginner and intermediate slopes than other nearby ski resorts; 70% of its slopes are graded "beginner" or "intermediate," the highest such ratio in the Salt Lake City area. Solitude was one of the first major US resorts to adopt an RFID lift ticket system, allowing lift lines to move more efficiently (source Visit Utah).
