Checked out brighton today was a little smaller than I was expecting but the snow quality was great, I liked the layout and I didn't have to wait in any lift lines. The blacks were good, my only complaint would be the blues were way too flat they were really greens IMO, and tons of the blues have long flat run outs leading to uphill sections forcing my to unstrap. I was gonna check the canyons tomorrow but I heard that is flat too so maybe ill do park city.

No No No Don't do PC. If anything, take the drive up to Snowbasin. It'll be a little crowded, but so will PC. I would try Solitude or Snowbasin before I did PC or Canyons. Just sayin.

If you think Brighton is flat, you will want to kill yourself at PC or the Canyons.

Check out Solitude, Snowbird or Snowbasin.

Yes, Brighton is small put people only really ride there for these places:




As well as it's backcountry access. Brighton is that one resort where you love or hate it, you really have to know where to go, a lot of it's gems are 'out of bounds.' It's known for it's tree runs, many cliffs, chutes and short, yet gnarly lines. Snowbird might be more your style.
