Billcosby Took the advice and went to snowbird, amazing mountain. Lots of steeps and tons of terrain.

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.

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.

neednsnow Snowbasin is reporting 28 inches. Effing YUM!

hikeswithdogs Head up to Powder Mountain and Snowbasin they got the bulk of the snow I believe.

WasatchMan One of the weirdest storms I have ever seen, more snow in the city than the mountains!

Still plenty of powder to go around at Brighton and Solitude, both had about a foot or so since last night, it was very windy today though so a lot of the fresh snow had blown around and became pretty windpacked.

It depends what you like to ride on choosing Brighton vs Solitude....

Treegreen Pow Mow is usually pretty good with the lifts and has gotten more snow so far with this storm. It's been weird because it primarily hung out in the valley and then went north. If you're going to stay in the Cottonwoods Solitude and Brighton will be better lift line wise than Alta/Snowbird.
