I decided a drive up to Brighton Resort last week was in order. At just 16 miles from the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon and less than 30 minutes from downtown Salt Lake City, getting to Brighton and other resorts near by doesn't get any better than Utah.
While up there the snowguns were blasting a number of runs including the beginner slope and the terrain park area. I got a sneak peak at a couple of new features which were donated including a pyramid box by Milosport and a massive wall from The Truth. A third feature which looked a lot like the lift towers from the old Milicent lift had just rolled up and was on the back of a truck trailer.
Although the snow has yet to arrive in force they are continuing to make as much snow as possible so that when the storms come opening day will shortly follow.
