Transportation

Getting to Brighton is easy! Brighton is located at the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon, just 35 minutes southeast of downtown Salt Lake City and the Salt Lake International Airport.

Salt Lake International Airport

Seventeen domestic airlines operate 972 scheduled flights daily, and 466 of the flights are non-stop. Delta Airlines serves cities nationwide with 108 nonstop flights daily.

For international travelers, a translation service is installed throughout the airport for on-the-spot translation of 250 languages via the telephone system.

From Salt Lake City to Brighton

Those who opt to stay in downtown Salt Lake City can ride specially equipped Utah Transit Authority (UTA) ski buses to Brighton and three other resorts. The buses stop at 10 hotels in downtown plus 15 other hotels in the greater Salt Lake area, and they stop at park-and-ride pick up points along the way. No need for a car.

That means you can take the bus from your hotel in downtown Salt Lake up to Brighton to ski and ride. Buses run frequently all day long so when your legs fall off, you can hop a bus back to your hotel and get ready for the evening. The one-way fare is $5.50 for 2014-2015. Tip: Take the correct abount because bus drivers cannot give change.
