Brighton opened yesterday to a boisterous crowd that flooded the Majestic Lift. It was either that or Explorer but if you wanted that extra vertical you had to wait in line for it. The skiing was on mostly manmade but it’s always worth getting out for the first day just to say you did.
So I yanked Sage out of school to play hooky.
Tickets are $37 until they’re not so take advantage of the discount. Quad Wednesdays are back for four dates in December. It’s one of the best deals in Utah. The event used to be that you would get four tickets for the price of one but the resort has made it easier on you. You no longer have to find three friends. You just need to bring something to support the designated charity for your $20 lift ticket.
Count Snowbird as the next resort to open. Season passholders will be able to turn it up this Thursday; then Solitude, Alta and Snowbird open to the public on Friday; PCMR on Saturday. Of course, the terrain will be limited and the runs covered in mostly man-made snow. The real stuff will come soon. How much and when is anyone’s guess but it will come just the same so hang in there. In fact, seven to 29 inches are predicted over the weekend so start dusting off your gear. Winter’s here.
