Hurrah! Utah’s second ski resort (following Friday’s opening of Solitude) is set to open for business this Wednesday, November 11th! Enjoy some Veteran’s Day skiing at Brighton Ski Resort!

The mid mountain is reporting 16″ of snow right now, and you’ll get access to limited trails off the Majestic and Explorer lifts. Brighton is set to open Wednesday at 9AM, and the Veteran’s Day lift ticket price is just $30. Wednesday will be five days earlier than Brighton had planned on opening. Added Brighton spokesperson Jared Winkler, “with colder temperatures coming to Utah on Thursday, our crews are hopeful that they will be able to open up additional lifts on the weekend.”
