BRIGHTON and SOLITUDE - The secrets of Big Cottonwood canyon!
Two wonderful, smaller resorts which nobody thinks of are Solitude and Brighton. Hidden up the Big Cottonwood Canyon these resorts are well worth a look, even if its just for a day.
Brighton has some of the best grooming anywhere and this family friendly resort has some lovely accommodation, night skiing and stunning terrain. This resort is a little gem!
Solitude is the powder hounds part of the duo. Funky terrain, fantastic snow and a laid back attitude, make Solitude one of Utah’s most inviting ski resorts.
