Another Brighton rider here. If you are planning on primarily hanging with your buddy I don't think you'll be disappointed with Brighton. If you want to venture out I'd say check out Snowbird/Alta since it's just a canyon over and just so you can say you did. I've never thought much of the Park City resorts, and I've never been to Pow Mow or Basin so can't talk about them.
