Brighton Mountain in Utah is a favorite amongst skiiers of all ages. With an average of 500 inches of light, fluffy snow each winter, the mountain is a lot like heaven for those who love to ski. Since Brighton is located in a pathway of winter storms and sits at the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon, the snowfall is great and plenty for all to enjoy.
