Brighton Resort Turns to the Dark Side.

No, we’re not talking Star Wars. But by the look of the image below we might be. Thank God the Force is with the Jedi park skiers and riders ripping the park at Brighton. The resort—known for many things, including the only real park scene in the Wasatch Front—opened night skiing last Wednesday.

Starting at 4 pm, adult lift tickets are priced at $40, with children passes costing $24. That;s pretty damn inexpensive. Brighton continues to show love, by offering $20 passes on Quad Wednesdays. Bring a bag of no perishable food to donate to The Utah Food Bank, and your in for a Jackson.

Brighton Resort offers the only real park scene in the Wasatch Front.

Continuing the trend of incentivizing women to ski, Brighton Resort is starting a new tradition called Ladies Ride Days. This new program connects women with other women to ski and snowboard with. Beginning Sunday December 20th, and each Sunday following, women will meet in the Blind Minors Coffee Cafe at 1 pm then explore the mountain together, meet new friends, and even receive prizes. Heads up! When that many women together, anything can happen.

Vail Resorts also recently announced their own women specific ski school program called Ultimate 4. Read more about this program here.
