Brighton Resort Announces Opening Day

Utah ski season begins with Brighton Resort opening on Tuesday, November 19

Brighton, UT (November 18, 2019) — Brighton is the first ski resort in Utah to open this season, and will start running two lifts on Tuesday, November 19th, 2019.

“In spite of less than ideal pre-season conditions, Brighton was able to make enough snow to provide adequate coverage around our base area, including Majestic and Explorer lifts,” said Jared Winkler, Director of Marketing.

Majestic and Explorer lifts will be running seven days a week from 9AM to 4PM. More lifts will open as conditions permit.

Lift tickets will be sold for a $54 window rate for adults and youth until more lifts open.

Brighton is offering a special Bright-N-Early early season pass for $199, good for unlimited skiing and riding between opening day and Dec. 22.

After Dec. 22, the Early pass holders can choose to upgrade to an unlimited 19/20 season pass, applying the amount paid to the purchase. As always, children age 10 and under ski free with a pass-holding or paying adult.
