Brighton to offer pre-season terrain park.

Brighton Resort, Utah October 7, 2015 - Brighton Resort is proud to announce it will be teaming up with local pros to create Utah’s premier pre-season terrain park named “The BoneZone”.  Originally built in Guardsman Pass around 2008, the BoneZone was the result of the creative minds of Ted Borland, Alex Andrews and many other of today’s Utah snowboard pros.  After years of YouTube edits, social media coverage and a huge underground following, Brighton Resort will be adopting it to their already extensive terrain park program.  As Alex and Ted explained, “We had been creating parks in the woods for years during the pre-season.  Since Brighton is our favorite place to ride, it was a perfect fit to bring the Bone Zone there!” 

During the pre-season, before the resort opens, the BoneZone will be located in Brighton’s beginner area known as Explorer.  “The BoneZone will consist of a range of features created out of logs as well as some traditional steel obstacles” explains Brighton Resort’s PR & Marketing Director, Jared Winkler.  He continues, “We had large numbers of athletes coming to the mountain before we opened for the winter and dragging out a lot of our terrain park features and ultimately slowing up the process of opening up the resort.  We feel this is a great alternative that makes everyone happy.”  The Bonezone will open to snowboarders, skiers, snow bikers and other snow enthusiasts as soon as conditions allow. Once the resort lifts open for the season and terrain expands, The Bonezone features will be moved to the upper mountain terrain parks. 

If you can’t make it over to Brighton Resort to experience the BoneZone, look for edits and updates on as well as on Instagram @brightonresort and @bonezonebrighton.
