Thirty Dollar Ski Lift Ticket? - Night skiing at Brighton

18 Feb 2009 1:32 AM | Anonymous
I always meet the most interesting people when I go skiing.  So this past weekend, we had awesome snow at Alta.  After doing several morning runs I pulled into ALF's restaurant at the bottom of Sugarloaf for some bottomless hot cocoa.  My fave!

Shared a table with this super nice couple from Alabama, or was it Atlanta?  Anyways, they were telling me how they went night skiing at Brighton and really enjoyed it.  I have never done it before so I was interested in learning about their experience. 

The husband actually works in SLC a couple of times a month and decided to fly his wife out for a romantic valentines ski weekend.  Here's what they said about it:

- Great experience, no lines at all.  No one there.
- Great visibility, the slopes were very well lit.
- Great snow fall
- There were literally no skiers, mostly snowboarders (may be a drawback for some)
- Super duper cheap at $30 for 5 hours worth of skiing.  They felt that they got more runs in they normally would because there were no lines.
- If you work locally, you can go right after work 4pm to 9pm.
- There was a good variety of runs, so not all basic or intermediate.  He claims there's a black???

They are not advanced skiers and were really using it to get practice and just have fun.  They said they were definitely going back.

My husband has no interest because he doesn't think there's enough challenging or steep terrain.  But it does sound interesting.  Anyways, if you are there and like night skiing check it out.

I love that it's cheaper than a half day.  Good for practicing skiing or snowboarding on a budget.  I wonder if they have good hot cocoa...
